Two-thirds of CBS News anchor Katie Couric's interview with Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin have aired, and one thing seems clear: Couric was ready to take on Palin, and Palin wasn't ready to take on Couric.
A telling clip from yesterday's interview: COURIC: I'm just going to ask you one more time, not to belabor the point. Specific examples in [McCain's] 26 years, of pushing for more regulation?
PALIN: I'll try to find you some, and I'll bring them to you. And from today's: Couric: Well, explain to me why [Alaska's proximity to Russia] enhances your foreign-policy credentials.
Palin: Well, it certainly does, because our, our next-door neighbors are foreign countries, there in the state that I am the executive of.
You can tune in to CBS News tonight for the full interview.
Update: Marc Ambinder at The Atlantic has the full interview.
