On the heels of Ben Smith‘s report on Politico about rising tension in the McCain camp regarding the handling of Gov. Sarah Palin, one of the Veep nominee’s most vocal supporters, Bill Kristol, expressed hope she breaks free from the constraints put on her.
Politico’s Michael Calderone writes about an exchange on FOX News Sunday today, as host Chris Wallace brought up the fact that Palin will end the race without ever appearing on a single Sunday morning public affairs show.
“I’m told she would be happy to do a TV show, if she hasn’t gotten authorization,” said Kristol. “I hope she breaks free this week. She should do ‘Fox New Sunday’ and every show, as far as I’m concerned, next Sunday.”
Palin’s running mate, Sen. John McCain, appeared on NBC’s Meet the Press for the first time in almost nine months (although, as McCain noted, he’s one of the program’s most frequent guests). Tom Brokaw interviewed the GOP nominee on the campaign trail in Iowa.
