Sarah Palin’s White House Victory Speech, In Full

7681608SARAH Palin was once a heartbeat away from being the President of the USA. OK, she was heartbeat and a few states away from being President. Now we know what she would have said had she won: “You betcha!”

Now Sarah Palin is a celebrity and in the book Sarah from Alaska, authors Scott Conroy of CBS News and Shushannah Walshe, formerly of Fox News, dish the dirt:

That Victory speech:

“And I said to my husband Todd that it’s not a step down when he’s no longer Alaska’s ‘First Dude’. He will now be the first guy ever to become the ‘Second Dude’.

“Had it gone the other way tonight, we would not have returned in sorrow to the great State of Alaska. We would have carried with us memories that are forever, and joyful experiences that do not depend on victory.

“This is a moment when principles and political independence matter a lot more than just the party line.”

That Concession speech:

“And when a black citizen prepares to fill the office of Washington and Lincoln, that is a shining moment in our history that can be lost on no one. Barack Obama has achieved a great thing, for himself and for our country, and I congratulate him.

“It would be a happier night if elections were a test of valour and merit alone, but that is not for us to question now.

“Now it is time for us go our way, neither bitter nor vanquished, but instead confident in the knowledge that there will be another day.”
