Bill Clinton Isn't Underestimating Sarah Palin

Democrats would be wise to listen to Bill Clinton.

In an interview with George Stephanopoulos on Good Morning America, Clinton said that Sarah Palin should not be underestimated. He also described her as "compelling", "persuasive" and "resilient."

Given that Clinton is the only Democrat to win two terms in office since FDR one would think Democrats would give pause. Yet I imagine few Democratic activists will heed Clinton's words of wisdom. Palin strikes such a raw nerve with them that they cannot think straight. Their objections to her very being cloud any ability to see her strengths.

This deficiency might very well propel Sarah Palin straight into the White House.
