Reagan was on Fox News earlier today to discuss the Palin resignation. He also says during the interview that the Republican Party desperately needs leaders, and the only real leader they have right now is Newt Gingrich.
Karl Rove also chimed in earlier today on Fox News Sunday:
She’s not going to be able to escape media attention. If she thinks somehow that she’s going to be able to protect her family against the kind of things that she’s suffered over the last couple of months from David Letterman and others, and seek a role of leadership for effective change for our country, as she said in her speech, she’s not going to be able to do it.
I’m a fan of Sarah Palin’s. But the effective strategies in politics are ones that are so clear and obvious that people can grasp it.
It is not clear what her strategy here is by exiting the governorship 2.5 years through the term and putting herself on the national stage that she may not yet be prepared to operate in.
