Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says Mitt Romney has the right message on the economy to win the White House this year, but needs to do a better job of connecting with independents and the party’s “base supporters,” who want the presumptive GOP nominee to “light our hair on fire.”
 
“He’s already got the right message,” the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee told Fox News’ Sean Hannity Tuesday.
 
But Palin added, “There are a lot of his base supporters — independents — who are saying, well, light our hair on fire, then! Remind us how important it is that we get engaged in the presidential election because it is the election of our lifetime.”
 
The Fox News contributor encouraged the former Massachusetts governor to be more “courageous and bold and passionate” in presenting his case, a point that many GOP and conservative leaders have been making over the past couple of weeks.
 
Palin also ventured a guess on what Romney is looking for in a vice presidential running mate.
 
Recalling her own controversial ride in the 2008 campaign as Republican nominee John McCain’s partner, Palin said, “I think Gov. Romney will probably play it safe, relatively speaking, in terms of finding someone who is a known commodity — so that the media doesn’t do what the media did to me.”
