Palin Proves That She Has Influence

For all those skeptics who view Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin as a lightweight, yesterday's runoff senatorial election in Georgia proves that she is someone to be reckoned with. She fired up crowds and generated huge turnout at the rallies she attended on behalf of Sen. Saxby Chambliss.

According to Politico: “I can't overstate the impact she had down here,” Chambliss said during an interview Wednesday morning on Fox News. “When she walks in a room, folks just explode,” he added. “And they really did pack the house everywhere we went. She's a dynamic lady, a great administrator, and I think she's got a great future in the Republican Party.”

Palin got a bad rap in the press, and she was clearly kept under wraps by the failed McCain campaign, but there is just no doubting that regular people are drawn to her. Even towards the end of the presidential campaign she was drawing huge crowds wherever she went.

It appears that her position as a power player in the Republican party as guaranteed.
