Christine O’Donnell may have lost her Senate race. But she’s not exiting the spotlight. In fact, she’s sounding a bit like Sarah Palin.
The Tea Party darling of Delaware cheerfully tells NBC’s Today show that she’s pursuing a book deal. She likes being involved in documentaries. And she’s going to fight tooth and nail against whatever Democrats try to pull during the upcoming lameduck session in Congress (how isn’t quite clear).
“We created a platform and we’ve been able to get a lot of issues out there. And I’d like to continue to do that at least for the short term.”
Will she run again for public office? “I haven’t a clue,” she says.
Sounds a tiny bit like Palin, who became a Republican rock star after she and John McCain lost their 2008 White House bid. First, the former Alaska governor and vice presidential nominee got a lucrative book deal, then loads of TV exposure, and has kept the political world guessing about her electoral plans.
