Sarah Palin Says She Would Have Been Better at the Top of the 2008 GOP Ticket (UPDATED)

So much for loyalty and Sarah Palin:

Republicans would have been more successful in the 2008 presidential elections if she was at the top of the ticket, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin suggested Saturday.

Speaking at the India Today Conclave in New Delhi, Palin was asked why the GOP ticket did not defeat then-Sen. Barack Obama (D). Palin said that Obama ran a strong campaign and effectively billed himself as a change candidate.

Pressed by India Today editor Aroon Purie that she also represented change, Palin replied, “I wasn’t at the top of the ticket, remember?”

The 2008 vice presidential nominee said she was not claiming she should have been the nominee over Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), but her comments provide a glimpse of her potential appeal to voters should she choose to run for the nomination in 2012.

This is unlikely to win her any friends among the growing number of GOP conservative establisment types who oppose her.

UPDATE: Here is a NEW LOW in partisan name calling — a name Palin is called. Sorry, this isn’t humor it’s just name calling and reprehensible.
