On "Washington Unplugged" Wednesday, CBS News chief political consultant Marc Ambinder commented on Sarah Palin's "America's Enduring Strength" video statement:
"It's a remarkable video for several reasons," Ambinder said. "If you look at the video, and you look at the scope of what she says, it's almost presidential-esque."We have two comments of our own. First, Gov. Palin's video statement was not "almost presidential-esque"; it was presidential, very presidential. Second, you have to wade through several of the remarks on this "Washington Unplugged" segment, but it is See-BS, after all.
Ambinder noted to CBS News senior White House correspondent Bill Plante that her response before President Obama's scheduled remarks Wednesday evening elevates her status as a prominent Republican, "I think it makes her the most prominent Republican, in a sense, to respond or to 'prespond' to what President Obama is going to say tonight."
