Charles Gibson has an exclusive interview with Sarah Palin that will be airing on 20/20 tonight. I watched part of it on Nightline ABC last night. He asks her some very tough, very important questions. I look forward to watching the full interview this evening.
Here on the West Coast it airs at 10pm on ABC. After watching it, let me know what you think.
On a related issue, John McCain was on The View just moments ago, so I watched it and took notes. MAN! These women were very hard on him for awhile. But he handled himself very well, I must say. They asked him a direct question about Roe v. Wade and whether or not he’d work hard to overturn it. He replied that he would nominate Supreme Court Justices who would interpret the law correctly. He went on to voice his opinion that he thinks it was a very bad decision, but that he feels there are times when abortion is to be allowed (such as rape, for instance). But he also made it clear that the decision on whether to overturn the issue will be up to the Justices of the Supreme Court.
In other words: nothing is going to change on the issue, as 7 out of our 9 current Justices were appointed by Republican Presidents who were arguably more conservative than John McCain. If they were going to overturn Roe v. Wade, I’d think they’d already have done so.
That aside, if he’s elected, I do believe he’ll work very hard to be the best President he possibly can be. That statement is not to be interpreted as an indication that I’ll personally be voting for McCain, because at the moment I’m still leaning the other way.
I am, however, attempting to listen to all sides with as open a mind as possible. I am open to changing my decision between now and November. A few posts back I stated that I planned to change my registration from the Republican Party to simply being labeled “Independent”. I did so. I’ve been a Republican for 17 years, but to change that to Independent just seems like the right thing to do.
I’ve been listening to a LOT of talk radio lately, streaming it through the Internet. I make a habit of listening to both Conservative and Liberal opinions. It’s been a very eye opening experience.
