Gigot: Palin ‘Chose to Be a Media Celebrity’

by Robert Costa

In the Wall Street Journal’s online Political Diary, editorial-page editor Paul Gigot comments on Sarah Palin: “Ms. Palin might have been a contender. Had she finished her job as governor, devoted a year or two to learning what she didn’t know about the world and economics, built a network of support around the country, and developed a thicker skin about the media, she might now be a formidable candidate. Instead, she chose to be a media celebrity and to play hard-to-get as a candidate. The best thing she could do for her reputation at this point would be to declare once and for all that she isn’t running, and then work to support whoever is the GOP nominee.”
