Audio: Dobson interviews Palin on faith, family, and the election

Twenty-seven minutes and no transcript, alas. The best I can do for you are these highlights from Beliefnet. The beginning deals with family issues (Trig especially) and their mutual admiration before segueing into the GOP platform around 15 minutes in. Predictably, the media headline is her telling Dobson that “the right thing for America will be done at the end of the day on Nov. 4.” That’s at around 17:10. My transcript:

You know, I am not discouraged at all, even hearing those poll numbers because, for some reason, I have found myself over and over again in my life being put in these underdog positions. And yet still, when victory needed to be reached in order to meet this greater good, it’s always worked out just perfectly fine despite the fact that over and over again I’ve been — and I know John McCain has been — in underdog positions. To me, it motivates us, makes us work that much harder, and it also strengthens my faith because I’m going to know at the end of the day — putting this in God’s hands — that the right thing for America will be done, the end of the day on November 4th. So I’m not discouraged at all. I’m just fine with the position that we’re in today.

I think she’s saying that the outcome will be fine no matter what because it’ll reflect God’s will, much as she said she hoped/prayed that the war is in accordance with God’s plan (which the media also distorted), but it’s slightly more ambiguous this time. Either way, it’s a bit more personal and humanizing than the average interview and therefore a good listen just as Saddleback was good viewing. Worth the time if you can spare it.
