Campbell Brown has been a refreshing voice for CNN, and I believe has seen the success of Keith Olbermann at MSNBC and I think is taking some cue from that. She has been very vocal, and willing to offer some strong opinion. I think yesterday she had had enough of the attacks on Sarah Palin.
Since the election was called for Obama, former McCain staffers have been leaking embarrassing information about Governor Sarah Palin’s cluelessness on foreign policy and her unprofessional behavior. Top aide Steve Schmidt wouldn’t say whether Palin had been a good VP choice. Others have revealed more about her clothing purchases. Yesterday on CNN Campbell Brown came out hard and rebuked these aides, noting that these were the same people who supposedly vetted Governor Palin and trumpeted her candidacy:
BROWN: To those McCain aides who say she is the reason they lost this election… can I please remind you of one thing: you picked her. You are the ones who supposedly vetted her, and then told the American people she was qualified for the job. You are the ones who after meeting her a couple of times, told us she was ready to be just one heartbeat away from the Presidency. … If Sarah Palin is the reason some voters chose Barack Obama, that is no one’s fault but your own.
