The former Alaska governor and ‘08 vice-presidential candidate, Sarah Palin’s new book, Going Rogue and subsequent media tour has been all the rage lately. Alas, there’s another underlying story here.
You can guess where I’m going with this one, can’t ya’? Palin dishes about her daughter Bristol’s unexpected pregnancy. Palin told Walters they were devastated when they found out she was pregnant. Although Palin and the baby papa, Levi Johnston (soon-to-be Playgirl model), have had a war of words in the media, the thing about Palin is she has certainly been able to keep her cool when it comes to the fam’.
Like her or not, the veep candidate was apparently very candid with Barbara Walters about her public life and political aspirations. While she mentioned the shock related to not even being aware that Bristol was having sex, she seems to have handled this piece well in the spotlight.
Could you imagine being in the public eye like that while juggling issues like this? Instead of dodging questions about it, I give her props for taking it head on and being truthful. She certainly set a high standard for her kids as her 15 year-old daughter, Willow, told Walters it would “be cool” to see her mom become president some day.
What do you think? Do you think Sarah Palin could have handled the parenting situation differently while on the campaign trail?
