The result of ABC's exclusive interviews with Sarah Palin were unveiled on ABC news.
How did she do? Professional. Answered some questions, dodged others. Seem stumped when asked about the "Bush Doctrine." Said she was channeling Abraham Lincoln when she called the Iraq war a "task from god." Looked a little nervous. But who wouldn't be.
Here's ABC's schedule:
Charles Gibson's exclusive interviews with Gov. Sarah Palin ... Friday on "Good Morning America" at 7 a.m. ET, "World News" and on "20/20," which will broadcast a one-hour special edition 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT.
Palin earlier had a brief sitdown with People magazine.
Here's the New York Times' account of the interview.
Also, a new poll shows that Obama's lead in Pennsylvania has dropped dramatically in recent weeks. As the candidate himself has said, he must carry this state to win in November:
No one has been elected President since 1960 without taking two of these three largest swing states in the Electoral College. Results from the independent Quinnipiac University polls show:
Florida: McCain leads 50 - 43 percent, compared to 47 - 43 percent August 26; Ohio: Obama is up 49 - 44 percent, compared to 44 - 43 percent last time; Pennsylvania: Obama leads 48 - 45 percent, compared to 49 - 42 percent.
