Palin Disappointed that Pawlenty Dropped Out

Bookmark and Share    Sarah Palin told  NBC’s Alex Moe  that she was disappointed by Pawlenty’s exit from the presidential race.  She adds that Pawlenty is a good man and his staff team is filed with talented people.  In Palin’s statement, while she thinks highly of Pawlenty, she obviously does not think very highly of the Iowa Caucus process and refers to it as “internal political machinery.

According to Plain

“I think we will see more people coming and going” in this campaign cycle. “I hate to see that internal party events would be seen as the barometer for somebody to stay in the race or not. I would love to have seen Pawlenty stay in there and allow the voters to decide not internal political machinery decide who should be in the race and who should not. So I am disappointed that he has dropped out. Pawlenty, he is a good man who worked very hard, had a good record as a governor. He knew how to get along with the boys in the sandbox. He knew when and how to compromise in order to get things done in a blue state – a Republican in a blue state being effective. I have great respect for him and a lot of his staff members too, good guys, good gals. He has a great family. So I really, really hope the best for Gov. Pawlenty; he is a good man, and disappointed that he dropped out.”

Insofar as whether or not Pawlenty’s departure from the race will have an effect on her decision to run or not, Palin stated;

 “No, I think this is more illustration of the comings and goings of a campaign in a very long season of politics. We still have many months to go, and I think we will see more people coming and going.”

In the meantime,  I am going to go out on a limb here and predict that Palin does not run for President but that she eventually comes out and endorses her friend Rick Perry.
