A campaign official privately tells the paper: "She's now positioning herself for her own future. Of course, this is bad for John. It looks like no one is in charge."
ABC News, among others, notes that, in an interview with CNN, one McCain adviser anonymously called Palin "a diva" who is "playing for her own future" political prospects.
""She is a diva. She takes no advice from anyone," the advisor told CNN. "She does not have any relationships of trust with any of us, her family or anyone else. Also she is playing for her own future and sees herself as the next leader of the party. Remember: divas trust only unto themselves as they see themselves as the beginning and end of all wisdom."
