That would be taking a page from Obama's play book. Instead, Palin is taking a different stance. Rather than bowing to criticism and seeking compromise, she's defending the heated rhetoric of her campaign style in spite of so many people's comments that vicious politics can be loosely associated with the shooting spree in Arizona.
She did take the symbols of gun sites off her web site however. Those symbols that were posed over congressional districts where she wanted to see democrats defeated.
She's still fighting and basically standing up for her campaign style. Whether that's good or bad, it's different than Obama's reaction to the 2010 election after republicans gained so many congressional seats.
Should Obama take a page from Sara Palin's play book and defend his stands more aggressively?
Compromise and backbone. Two somewhat opposite poles of a spectrum. Both have their virtues and drawbacks. Seems like democrats are on the defensive more often than republicans.
