Gibson interviews shows Gov. Palin is the real deal...

Governor Palin is the real deal and no matter how much spin is put on these interviews by the liberal press and Obama campaigns, she is only going to win supporters...Conservative candidates have always had to go above and beyond their liberal counterparts with the media and I thought Gov. Palin did an exceptional job. From ABC NEWS: Sarah Palin may toe John McCain's line on national security issues, but when it comes to global warming and drilling for oil in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, the running mates will "agree to disagree," the Alaska Governor said in an exclusive interview with ABC News's Charlie Gibson. …Gibson for the first two of three interviews, discussing national security and then energy policy and climate change. …The interviews took place in Alaska Thursday immediately before and after a deployment ceremony for her son Track, 19, a private in the U.S. Army who will leave for Iraq later this month. …Palin, just two years into her first term as governor, made a name for herself as a "reformer" and used the day's second interview to trumpet her record of taking on Big Oil and the Republican mandarins of Alaska. …In the day's first interview, Palin hewed closely to the McCain talking points, mirroring the presidential nominee's positions on foreign policy and national security. …In the day's second interview, when it came to the discussion of energy policy, turf the Alaska governor is far more comfortable discussing, many of the differences between she and McCain were exposed.
