Sarah: She Wants Presidency

(My other column for today is below this one) I was just looking at page 83 of Lorenzo Benet's book, (Trail Blazer) which discuCheck Spellingsses Sarah Palin's thinking on the verge of her upset electiion over a four-term incumbent as Mayor of Wasilla

"Sarah's political trajectory, meanwhile, seemed poised to clear Mount McKinley. During a late-night meeting before the election, [campaign manager Laura] Chase and Sarah were discussing the candidate's future, and Chase suggested she would run for governor in ten years. [She did, and she won.]

"It's doubtful that even the GOP leaders lining up in support could have anticipated the reply from the ambitious thirty-two-year-old mayor-to-be. 'I want to be president,' she said."

As the political opponents she's left in the dust know only too well, Sarah generally gets what Sarah wants.

When we are as focused, resilient, positive, and confident as Governor Palin - we all get what we want. (Many want but do not do the needed action steps with the same positive outlook.)
