Sarah Palin: God Wanted Me To Run

A political strategist for John McCain's 2008 presidential run told 60 Minutes that Sarah Palin told him that adding her to the ticket was all part of God's plan.
Schmidt, McCain's chief campaign adviser, said he asked Palin about her serenity in the face of becoming "one of the most famous people in the world." He quoted her as saying, "It's God's plan." Palin has not ruled out a run for the presidency. Schmidt was interviewed by "60 Minutes" for a segment about a new book about the 2008 presidential race, "Game Change," by John Heilemann of New York magazine and Mark Halperin of Time. Schmidt credited Palin with being a quick study and for giving a great speech at the Republican National Convention in St. Paul, Minn., but he said it soon became clear that she often was not accurate in her remarks.
Did God also plan for her to lose and become a national laughingstock? This all-powerful gig thing is so confusing sometimes.
