2008 Sarah Palin “sees herself as the next leader of the party.”

Several McCain advisers have suggested to CNN they have become increasingly frustrated with what one aide described as Palin “going rogue” recently…. McCain sources point to several incidents where Palin has gone off message, and privately wonder if they were deliberate. For example: labeling robo calls “irritating,” even as the campaign was defending the use of them and telling reporters she disagreed with the campaigns controversial decision to pull out of Michigan.
A second McCain source tells CNN she appears to now be looking out for herself more than the McCain campaign.
“She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone,” said this McCain adviser, “she does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else. Also she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party.”
Seconding John Aravosis: Oh please, GOP, anoint this woman—this comically corrupt politician, this blithering idiot, this pro-life extremist—the leader of your party. Pretty please with Bristol Palin’s cherry on top?
