Palin's mindset

A few of Palin's comments from her ABC interview last night have been examined critically, but I haven't seen much attention given to this statement. Asked if she hesitated when McCain first asked her to be her running mate, she replied,
I answered him yes... because I have the confidence in that readiness and knowing that you can’t blink, you have to be wired in a way of being so committed to the mission, the mission that we’re on, reform of this country and victory in the war, you can’t blink. So I didn’t blink then even when asked to run as his running mate.
Seriously, what the hell is she talking about? Is she saying that, since we have to be resolute in the face of our enemies, we have to be resolute in every decision we ever make? Hesitation in the face of John McCain would reveal weakness and invite attack?

Haven't we had enough of leaders who make knee-jerk decisions and evaluate every question in terms of warfare?

abc released a small snippet of the interview and i really feel she is going to sabatoge mccain's bid for presidency. She is going to sway those undecided voters towards obama because they are going to be all "wait, wait, wait, this person is ssecond in charge? Hell no!" -- although they said that about quayle too, didn't they?

p.s. Mccain got crushed on The View today where he lied and stammered through a barrage of questions. McSame/Pain is a joke
