While Carl Cameron was telling us moments ago -- Sarah Palin is the keynote speaker at the big Tea Party convention this weekend.
The former vice presidential candidate delivering the keynote speech tomorrow night before the crowd of anti -- -- in fiscal conservatives.
And it yeah who knows a thing -- -- About what it's like to be thrust into the -- -- on the political ticket.
It's former vice presidential candidate Geraldine Ferraro who's got some thoughts.
I'm Sarah Palin welcome Jerry.
You know good to have I have got to tell you like I and just really impressed with him congratulations.
I think a lot of thought that the -- thank you thank you very much.
You know it's it's so interesting to watch this with Sarah Palin because of course she resigned the governorship everybody well -- everybody that many people said.
What could she be thinking and -- -- -- -- political suicide.
Check out I don't think it's political -- 78 I have to tell you that the things -- so different from from.
When the campaign was over to -- now to today.
-- a different place -- as a society.
But also in how we treat.
-- can get us out.
Well you know when I hate when my campaign was over in 19124.
I think me because I was the first woman to two run nationally for me to -- I had to be very careful about what I did.
Even afterwards and willing to make sure that I was in no way putting him in office of vice president and -- -- -- -- -- where I was not.
I did a Pepsi commercial and was criticized roundly for doing it.
-- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- -- There is very little that I can do because people are watching to see.
-- how I would react after -- You know here we are 2526 years later.
And you know it's fair game to do what you want and that's and that's fine I I I think that she should not be treated any differently from any guy simply because she's a woman.
And she's taking advantage of which he is important and taking advantage of who what -- the other thing that's different is nobody ever suggested to be that I should run for president.
-- -- -- I was I was and I never in my head the what I should what I was gonna do is gonna run for the senate in 19186.
And they got involved with a whole bunch of other things.
Not packages -- that you said that these are hailing it's fine for her to be sort of offering up some red meat for her party like the attack on Rahm Emanuel and I know she drew had a beef with him and and other things she's done but -- says she needs to get substantive she needs to answer the questions that some people have about.
Her experience and her qualifications do you think it is harder.
For Americans who don't know her take her seriously.
Because she's a woman.
Not because she's -- woman.
-- -- sequence of the fact that she hasn't had the experience and and remember that -- in our presidential primaries last year but two years ago.
When when I was trying to figure out who went with support.
-- -- for people I'm going through Chris Dodd because they knew him and I said I could -- him like is what killed by.
I guess what they'll which I worked with below my nuclear expansion of course that is what Hillary Clinton and I situations experience this as the two of them she was the Smart knowledgeable could do political things.
Yes she's a woman that was the additional piece from I never would consider her opponent because at that point I think consultant -- -- Now you know you get half that once you're in -- position you were the nominee and then you figure who does he choose for vice president that's the first.
Really serious decision -- person estimate once their candidate.
And I says okay -- Joseph Biden is there you know I'm fine I know there will be all right.
I think that it is Sarah Palin has to do if she is serious about being present to can she do she said she's having fun it's -- side is taken differently.
As they said from when I can't -- If she's going to be serious she's got to learn the issues and that was the problem with her doing.
And you meet the debates I went back to duplicate.
When when this is going on I've been invited to keep one point two.
Two comment on it for anything with my friends with President Bush president 41 points at the white.
And the too much for talking -- that they.
And if I went up there I I took a close look at the today that I had I had thing I'd never seen.
And I was stunned by how you know it was one issue after another -- -- -- -- I've questioned and he and -- -- on that point you record as the debate and now now you're all chummy with with bush 41 but take a look at this -- look at this ladies and gentlemen.
Let me help you with the difference ms.
Iran and the embassy in Lebanon.
Iran we were held by a foreign government.
Any in -- eleven then you had a wanton.
Terrorist action where the government opposed to congresswoman firm.
Let me just say first -- -- almost resent vice President Bush your patronizing attitude that you have.
That's how how.
Ol hole I haven't had -- I would have a lot when I went up to -- -- -- was very very sweet.
He -- tedious and about you know where you embarrassed when the next -- you think you -- a little and he said.
-- in such -- gentleman yes and I'll listen patently.
He said well you know it was it was pointless things of -- with the construction.
And he said he had I think you know on the panel long time effort or -- as a prosecutor I've known that this as it turned.
You eat nothing for but I -- have a question has missed presents it was sent to you we didn't think you want to.
And we had sent to -- at any effectiveness don't think she need a moment like now -- has if it.
Clinton expected to President Bush 41 sort of a smack down of somebody who is respected in an apparent that.
No I don't think so does that affect I can call from Joseph Biden put the debate as to what every he did don't put -- that.
But I've got to tell you something with something like this we turn around it's not so much that she's gonna get he's gonna he's -- -- -- and and one of the things that happened.
You have to look at and say you know.
In some ways was -- It was John McCain -- -- Because she didn't have time.
The coming campaign all I -- -- warning -- -- -- like this she's got to feel like she's a series -- shouldn't go to this other stuff to -- -- she's got to -- Well I'll tell you what one way we will be able to see whether she knows the issues or not will be this Sunday FOX News Sunday Chris Wallace has got an exclusive interview with Sarah Palin it's gonna go for sixty minutes.
