And what did Charlie Gibson do in his interview that was so horrible? He asked Palin some very serious questions, which is appropriate because she is in the running for a very serious position.
He didn't do anything horrible. Anyone running for VP should be asked any tough question that we can come up with. There is very little, if anything, that is off-limits. A true candidate would welcome a tough interview; after all, a tough interview with lights, makeup, and advisors is a lot easier than dealing with hostile countries and making decisions such as whether and when to go to war. For me, she fumbled through an interview and from what I've seen she bumbled through her interview with Katie Couric. If she can't manage these two tasks, she certainly can't lead our country. Anyone who says the interview was "unfair" because she was asked hard questions is looking for a scapegoat to excuse her inability to conduct herself substantively in an interview. I'll give you that she looks good in an interview, and she can actually give non-answers with a straight face, but she can't carry the substance of the questions. And that scares me.
