Sarah Palin, former Republican vice presidential candidate, has kicked off a nationwide promotional tour for her memoir Going Rogue. The book, which has been described, in par,t as a score settling effort, accuses the McCain campaign of micromanaging the mercurial former Alaska governor. But the question nobody seems willing to deal with is, why did McCain's people deem it necessary to monitor and control an individual who, as they say, would have been one heartbeat away from the presidency? That they apparently felt it necessary demonstrates that they believed that Palin lack the qualifications for the office of vice president.
