The Right would like her to be their Poster Girl. Her views are pretty extreme. She declares herself a Christian but her actions are often questionable. Her understanding of issues, as she expresses them , seem elementary at best . Then there is the way she is easily offended by the press. She wants to play hardball, but when thrown a hard fast ball she cries foul. Now she has quit because it was too tough for her. Imagine if she HAD run for President, it would be a lot tougher.
I agree the media has spent far too much space on her. Let her go away.
