Washington, Dec.20 (ANI): A former colleague of Sarah Palin, Nicolle Wallace, has become the latest senior Republican to state that she has multiple flaws. allace, who worked closely with Mrs Palin on the ill-fated 2008 Republican presidential campaign, said the former vice-presidential candidate's weaknesses would be revealed by the rigours and demands of a long contest to secure the party's nomination for the next White House election.
"The more people try to take her out, she only becomes emboldened, strengthened, it makes her such a martyr," said Wallace, who has recently written a thriller called Eighteen Acres, drawn in part from her experiences on the bid for the White House of John McCain and Mrs Palin, his running mate.
"She has very obvious deficiencies that will reveal themselves as the nominating contest gets closer," she told The Daily Telegraph, adding: "Let her shoot her moose or whatever the heck she does on her [television] show, it will all work out."
Wallace said: "It's incredibly cynical to think you can win an election without having a thoughtful intellectual discussion with the country, thinking you can just scare people into voting for you."
Mrs Wallace's remarks follow similar reservations voiced by senior Republicans and figureheads of the Right, including Barbara Bush, former First Lady, and Karl Rove, the leading strategist in the George W Bush administration. (ANI)
