Miller, Palin Put Rumors of Rift to Rest

"Of course she's qualified."

You may have heard about a leaked Todd Palin email addressed to Alaskan Republican Senate candidate Joe Miller released to the public earlier this week after Miller dodged a question from Fox News Sunday's Chris Wallace about a hypothetical endorsement for a hypothetical Sarah Palin presidential run. According to the email, Miller wasn't supportive enough of Palin -- who endorsed his candidacy for Senate over now-Independent candidate Lisa Murkowski -- and implied that endorsements are two-way streets.

On Wednesday, Todd issued a statement via The Weekly Standard to clarify his message and to dispel media reports of a rift between the Palins and Millers. According to Palin's statement, he had misunderstood Miller's comments about Sarah's possible candidacy:

My family has worked hard in supporting Joe Miller, so when I heard he’d said something less than supportive of my wife’s efforts, I responded. But it turns out we’d gotten our wires crossed and Joe hadn’t said anything like what I’d been told. So there’s no story here except the fact that the press put our personal emails online again, and again couldn’t even be bothered to conceal our email addresses or take any steps to protect our privacy.

In addition, Sarah took to her Twitter account to condemn the media's speculation in the matter.

On Wednesday afternoon, Joe Miller appeared on "America Live" with Fox News' Megyn Kelly to discuss the close Alaska Senate race and to reiterate his position regarding a Palin endorsement and the former Alaska governor's qualifications.

She's done phenomenal things for this country, there's no question about that. She's elevated the debate critical to our race, and let me tell you also: we know what qualified means, don't we?

We know that we have a constitutional requirement for somebody that's gonna run for President. Of course, she's qualified.
