Carol Shea-Porter, not an outsider:
“She’s not really viewed by most people as an activist or an outsider,” said Jennifer Donahue, political director for The New Hampshire Institute of Politics. “She’s part of the establishment, and I think she faces more scrutiny than before.”
Kelly Ayotte and Sarah Palin – outsiders:
She’s smart, she’s connected, but she has never run for statewide office before. She is liked by the Republican establishment, and has worked as AG for both Republican Governor Craig Benson, and Democratic Governor John Lynch.
She may not be a professional politician, and neither is Palin (wink, nod.) But they have something many of their male counterparts may not. They are outsiders. They have a different perspective. Sotomayor put it on the record: a perspective different than that of white males.
Like Obama, they don’t have to talk the talk of change. They are change.
Is there anything bereft of data she won’t say to get in print or the TeeVee?
