As a college student, Adam Brickley started the Draft Sarah Palin for Vice President movement in 2007. Perhaps he should have started the “Elect Sarah Palin for Vice President” movement. Adam discusses the initiative that took the political system by storm.
“The media didn’t do a great job as far as I’m concerned. I mean, we had our share of fun at the expense of Katie Couric and Charile Gibson but I’ve been on TV criticizing the McCain campaign’s handling of her, they brought in a lot of old Bush staffers for that job.
