Sarah palin heads into friendly territory Wednesday when she will be on Dr. James Dobson's Focus on the Family radio program. Read more from the Colorado Springs Gazette below:
One of Sarah Palin's most prominent local supporters, Focus on the Family founder James Dobson, didn't go to her rally Monday at Sky Sox stadium, but he did manage to sneak in a phone interview with her after the event. The 18-minute interview will air Wednesday on Dobson's "Focus on the Family" radio show.
Tom Minnery, senior vice president of government and public policy of Focus on the Family Action, the lobbying arm of Focus, wouldn't divulge the details of the interview. But he said Dobson spoke with Palin about the pressure of the campaign and the attacks on her since Sen. John McCain chose her in August as his running mate.
"She is smart, articulate and has a Christian testimony, so we can see why the national media is out to get her," Minnery said Monday.
Dobson had once said he would never vote for McCain. But soon after McCain chose Palin, Dobson said he vote for the Arizona senator for president.
Minnery said Dobson is impressed by the Alaska governor's conservative values, including her opposition to abortion, even in cases of rape and incest.
"Her future in politics is bright," Minnery said. "People are drawn to her."

The McCain/Palin ticket MUST get social conservatives out in droves. Going on Dr. Dobson's radio show is a smart move. He has a huge audience. Millions listen to the show. So much has been made about how MCain and Palin have to attract independent voters. While that is true it is also imperative that Evangelicals come out in droves especially in battleground states like Ohio, Colorado, etc. Heavy turnout by social conservatives will be needed big time to try and combat Obama's momentum. It still may not be enough but who knows?
