Democrats Don't Want Palin Either

What is it about Sarah Palin? Apparently, her offer last weekend to campaign for conservative Democrats after leaving office is falling on deaf ears. Politico tracked down some Democratic congress members, but found that Palin questions "induced an awkward stare-at-your-shoes unease" in Democrats. Apparently, some "lunged for elevators," "chuckled nervously," and "replied in a clipped fashion that reflected an immense desire to not discuss the topic at any length." Sure, some Blue Dogs left the door open with swinging endorsements like Mississippi Rep. Gene Taylor's "I haven't given it a lot of thought," or Georgia Rep. Jim Marshall's, "I'm sure that there are many ways she could be helpful." When asked if she'd be helpful to him, he said, "Well I suspect so—I just don't know what those ways are."
