Palin vs. McCain

Sarah Palin has denied reports that she's a "diva." Let's check that against the leaks now flowing freely from the McCain camp. The New York Times notes that as McCain prepared to deliver his concession speech, Sarah Palin turned up with a draft of her own speech. It was up to Mark Salter and Steve Schmidt tell her that their campaign wouldn’t be breaking with tradition and letting the veep candidate address the nation. The paper says that by the end McCain and Palin spoke only “occasionally,” with tensions running high about Palin’s positioning for a 2012 run. Fox News has the juiciest dish today: McCain sources say Palin was not only unable to name the countries in NAFTA, but that she thought Africa was a country, not a continent.
