In my Nov.29 column, which you can read here, I made a case that Sarah Palin may be heir to James Dobson as far as being the leader of conservative Christians.
Below is Dobson’s emailed response to that column, which I received today.
Your article suggesting that Sarah Palin might be my successor is interesting. I have great respect for the governor and wish her well. There is only one problem with your hypothesis. While I am leaving Focus on the Family in February, I have no intention of retiring. I expect to be back on the radio in the near future, and I have just completed a new book, Bringing Up Girls, which will be released in April. We are also preparing a new film series on the family that will be coming this fall.
As long as God gives me breath, I will be working to defend and promote the things in which I believe.
James Dobson, Ph.D.
