    The governor got a more serious interrogation moments later when Temple graduate student Michael Rovito approached her to inquire about Pakistan.

    "How about the Pakistan situation?," asked Rovito, who said he was not a Palin supporter. "What's your thoughts about that?"

    "In Pakistan?," she asked, looking surprised.

    "What's going on over there, like Waziristan?"

    "It's working with [Pakistani president] Zardari to make sure that we're all working together to stop the guys from coming in over the border," she told him. "And we'll go from there."

    Rovito wasn't finished. "Waziristan is blowing up!," he said.

    "Yeah it is," Palin said, "and the economy there is blowing up too."

    "So we do cross border, like from Afghanistan to Pakistan you think?," Rovito asked.

    "If that's what we have to do stop the terrorists from coming any further in, absolutely, we should," Palin responded, before moving on to greet other voters.

    Obama was late coming to the party on this. This has always been the policy of the current administration.

    Then you disagree with John McCain on this issue, Pastor Larry?

    Not sure, but I wouldn't be surprised. I disagree with McCain on a lot of stuff, perhaps even most stuff. I think he is an abominable candidate. But since I am not sure what he says about this I don't know if I agree or not.

    Interesting how all these "surprised looks" were caught since Palin was obstructed from view during this exchange. It's been played many times today on CNN.

    Also, given her statements, she seems to be saying she'd allow for troop pursuit over the border. That's an entirely different thing that Obama proposed, which is a unilateral attack from the air or land without Pakistani support on Pakistani soil.

    It will be interesting to hear Palin parse this herself.

    I am not willing to give Pakistan veto power over the protection of the United States. I am glad that Senator Obama is not willing to do so, either.

    Actually, Obama said he would pull the trigger if we had Ben Ladin in our sights and the Pakistanies won't respond.

    However, Bush did send troops in without permission. I suspect he thought he had a good target that made the risk worth it. I support him even without knowing why he did it.
