The view from Sarah Palin’s kitchen: She would have been happy to speak out for herself more during the presidential campaign.
President-elect Barack Obama did “a great job” of speaking for himself, the Republican Party’s vice presidential nominee said in an interview with Matt Lauer of NBC’s Today Show that ranged from the governor’s office in Alaska to the kitchen at home where Palin was whipping up a meal for her family.
“He did a great job of articulating his ability to usher in change,” said Palin, maintaining that she had no rift with the senior senator from Arizona at the top of the ticket. “Sen. McCain and I had a great relationship” and it remains “very warm and friendly.”
