(Newser) – It's great that Sarah Palin landed the No. 2 slot and all, but her own mother-in-law likes that Barack Obama and hasn't quite made up her mind which ticket to vote for in November, she tells the New York Daily News. “We don’t agree on everything,” Faye Palin says of her daughter-in-law. “But I respect her passion. Being pro-life is who Sarah is.”

"I'm not sure what she brings to the ticket other than she's a woman and a conservative. Well, she's a better speaker than McCain," Faye Palin jokes. "People will say she hasn't been on the national scene long enough. But I believe she's a quick study." (Read more Sarah Palin stories.)
