Game Change Authors Halperin and Heileman on Palin’s “Uncertain Future” in Time

a_game_change_0113.jpg

Time magazine’s Mark Halperin and John Heileman , co-authors of Game Change, give us a story today on former V.P. hopeful Sarah Palin in the ’08 campaign and her new role at Fox News.

The story is online today and in the magazine tomorrow.

An excerpt: “That other McCain aides have kept quiet for so long about Palin owes to two factors. The first is loyalty to McCain … But the second reason is equally significant and a harbinger of the fights to come in the Republican Party: a deep fear of the Palin forces. Intimidated by the rabidness of her supporters, believing that they can’t be swayed by facts and worried about getting crosswise with the most highly energized part of the Republican base, McCainworld has allowed her version of reality to go largely unchallenged-and her rise to continue unchecked.”

Time’s Managing Editor Richard Stengel interviews the authors about Game Change in this video.
