Knowledge and Ability

“I think the Katie Couric interview shows that she [(Palin)] needs to be briefed more on certain aspects,” said Jim Greer, the Republican chairman in Florida [(emphasis added)]. “She continues to be viewed very positively by the base of the party, but she needs to demonstrate that she’s got the knowledge and ability to be president should the need arise” (NY Times article on the added importance of the upcoming debate).

Should one imply from Greer's statement that the "base" just doesn't care if Palin has (a) knowledge, or (b) ability?
