White House Responds to Palin

President Obama isn't jumping at Sarah Palin's offer to jog together, but at least it's a distraction from speculation about whether she suffered from post-partum depression. "That's an interesting question," White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said at the briefing Wednesday when asked about Palin's request. "How's her jump shot? Maybe there's a terrain advantage in a place like Alaska. I will definitely ask him if he has the time to do that this summer." Earlier this week, Palin said she could outrun the president. "I betcha I'd have more endurance," she told Runner's World magazine. "I'd like him to come to Alaska so he can see the beauty of this 49th state."
