The move to reintroduce Palin comes after much criticism for a stumbling interview she gave to CBSâ€™ Katie Couric last week; increased conservative grousing about the campaign’s decision to roll out the GOP vice presidential nominee through high-stakes and high-profile mainstream media interviews; and the suggestion by some observers that she even drop off the ticket.
Quite the contrary, Palin, her family and aides are determined to remind voters what they so liked about the governor in the first place.
After the debate and talk radio hits, the plan is to find a way to let Palin be Palin, moving her away from the pre-fab talking points and letting the down-home daughter of Wasilla be herself.
“She wants to tell her story more, and people around her do, too,” added the source. “This is a governor very much on her toes, very much fed up with inaccuracies and fictions about her own life and career.”
