In his June 14 column, "Palin Power," Jack Kelly describes a recent public appearance by Gov. Sarah Palin in Auburn, N.Y., for which 20,000 people turned out. This, along with her dust-up with David Letterman and her walk across the stage at the GOP fundraiser which, according to Kelly, drew more attention than Newt Gingrich's keynote speech, constitutes evidence of her potential to be a party leader?
I would feel much better knowing that Gov. Palin, who demonstrated a frighteningly thin knowledge of American foreign policy in 2008, is reading at least one book this summer from the very helpful list, "What to Read on Iranian Politics," compiled by Suzanne Maloney, Middle East expert at the Brookings Institution.
