In the past few days, both John McCain and Sarah Palin have demonstrated their ability to laugh at themselves. I love that. What a great quality for our soon-to-be leaders!
McCain was a complete hoot at the Alfred Smith dinner. Not only did he deliver the lines with perfect timing, he enjoyed every second of it. He's comfortable in his own skin. Knows who he is and (equally importantly) who he's not.
Sarah Palin, too, was comfortable in her own skin and delivered her lines flawlessly on SNL. Few of us could have walked into the lion's den with such grace and good nature. And, she's got rhythm!
