Palin: Akin should learn from me and pass the torch

Sarah Palin on Fox News last night, arguing that Todd Akin should take a clue from her, and know when to fold them for the greater good (i.e. not running for Missouri Senate = resigning as governor of Alaska).

"Bless his heart, I don't want to pile on Todd Akin, because in some respects, I understand what he's trying to say here in standing on principle, that he doesn't want to be perceived as a quitter.

But you got to know when to hold 'em and know when to fold 'em.

Believe me, I've walked it before.

I know when you have to hold that mantle and then hand it to someone else in order to progress a positive agenda. That's what I had to do in Alaska."

One of my fav quotes, though, came when Greta invited Palin to gloat for passing on Todd Akin during the endorsement process.

Palin answered:

"I won't gloat about it, but I was right."
