Earlier today, Katie asked Alaska Gov. and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin if she's really ready for prime-time. You'll see more of Katie's interview - the first ever with both of the Republican candidates - tonight on the CBS Evening News at 6:30 p.m. EST.
Katie Couric: Gov. Palin, since our last interview, you've gotten a lot of flak. Some Republicans have said you're not prepared; you're not ready for prime-time. People have questioned your readiness since that interview. And I'm curious …
Sarah Palin: Yeah.
Couric: … to hear your reaction.
Palin: Well, not only am I ready but willing and able to serve as vice-president with Sen. McCain if Americans so bless us and privilege us with the opportunity of serving them, ready with my executive experience as a city mayor and manager, as a governor, as a commissioner, a regulator of oil and gas.
