Christine O'Donnell Repeats the Joe Miller Mistake of Not Endorsing Sarah Palin

It was recently in the news that Alaska senate candidate Joe Miller angered the former half-term first family, the Palins, by not commenting on whether or not Sarah Palin was qualified to be president - private emails were revealed to show an angry Todd Palin attack the candidate and then advise his wife's political action committee to shut down any funds to that person's campaign.

Since Sarah Palin got into the endorsement game, picking national candidates left and right, and since she has played coy with the idea of running for president in 2012, it is only natural for pundits to ask Palin's endorsees whether or not they believe Palin was qualified for the top spot in American politics.  The natural response would be "Yes" but it seems that word isn't in the vocabulary of those people Palin endorsed (and not because they are running for office on the "No" ticket).

In an interview with CNN's Jim Acosta, O'Donnell was asked whether or not Palin was qualified.  Instead of giving an up or down vote, O'Donnell responded by asking the following: ""Is she running for President? Again, hypothetical."  She then quickly steered questions away from her opinions of Sarah Palin.

Looks like there will be some angry emails in O'Donnell's in-box once Todd catches wind of her lack of endorsement for his wife...
