No New Palin

Former Bush adviser Matthew Dowd has outlined how Sarah Palin could still reinvent herself (as I had). Only one problem with such imaginings, Michelle Cottle writes:

For better or for worse, Palin is who she is. As is often the case, her awesome charisma comes burdened with breath-taking arrogance and a whole lot of crazy--which, as Bill Clinton so graphically demonstrated, cannot easily be weeded out. When dealing with such fundamentals, the contention that Palin can become president if only she will be x instead of y winds up less an exercise in showing how the ex-governor can succeed than in exposing Dowd's real belief that she cannot.
