Kristol: Palin ‘reminds me a lot of FDR.’

Yesterday on Fox News Channel, Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol predicted that Gov. Sarah Palin (R-AK) has a bright future in American politics even if her ticket does not win today’s election. Kristol noted that Franklin Delano Roosevelt lost his bid for vice president in 1920 only to be elected president twelve years later:

KRISTOL: She has a future, she may not run in four years if McCain loses. Franklin Roosevelt, as a 38 year old, lost the vice presidential race. He became governor of New York and then was elected twelve years from [then]. … She reminds me a lot of FDR. I just said that so that can go — so the left wing blogs can go crazy.
