At lunch today, I mentioned my involvement with C4P to Phil Kerpen, head of American Commitment in Washington.
He told me of his experience with Sarah Palin when she was a keynoter for a conference he helped put on for another group a few years ago. “Her staff asked what issues she should cover, and when she came she had our reply in her hand, covered with extensive notes in her own handwriting. She focused on the issues, and had clearly thought about them. (In contrast to so many pols, who have one canned speech they give on all occasions.) She was great.”
None of this will surprise readers of this site, but it is always nice to have confirmation of one’s views from an outside source. And Phil runs a good operation; his high opinion is not lightly given.
