if she fucks up her debate with biden bigtime, and mccain-palin loses in the election, she will be destroyed--a tarnished brand back in Alaska. A fool who gambled her fledgling political career unnecessarily. She will not win re-election for governor in 2010.
Her name will be immortalized alongside Dan Quayle as one of the worst VP picks ever.
So for her political future's sake, this election is a must-win. The debate is important. She needs to win, period. Higher bar for her, i know, but she needs to know what's in store for her if her team loses.
More pity for Sarah Palin.
