The entire interview of Gov. Palin by Lawrence Kudlow of CNBC can be found at http://kudlowsmoneypolitics.blogspot.com/2008/08/my-interview-with-alaska-governor-sarah.html.

Here’s an excerpt from Mike Allen’s story …

Count Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as one of the most surprised that she was chosen as running mate for Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.). In an interview just a month ago, she dissed the job, saying it didn’t seem “productive.” In fact, she said she didn’t know what the vice president does.

Larry Kudlow of CNBC’s “Kudlow & Co.” asked her about the possibility of becoming McCain’s ticket mate.

Palin replied: “As for that VP talk all the time, I’ll tell you, I still can’t answer that question until somebody answers for me what is it exactly that the VP does every day? I’m used to being very productive and working real hard in an administration. We want to make sure that that VP slot would be a fruitful type of position, especially for Alaskans and for the things that we’re trying to accomplish up here for the rest of the U.S., before I can even start addressing that question.”

What a choice, John McCain! Clearly puts Alaska ahead of all other concerns. Just the global viewpoint we need.
