Didn't like McCain, didn't like his VP choice either. With that said, she does speak for a large segment of the 'conservatives.' At the same time, many not only don't support her, the dislike her, which is part and only a part of why Obama won. So here we are 7 months or so later. Those that disliked Palin haven't changed their minds. Nor have they regarding Obama, though seems more than a few have joined them there. Just saying, if Obama and dems have any hopes for 2010, they better look for reconciliation.
