If so, when will she announce?

and will she be the Republican's nominee?


-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_


i've stated in another post that i think she will announce in november at the earliest because

1) she's still on fox news' payroll so the longer she delays, the more she get's paid.... i would! ftw

2) the less she has to deal with the lamestream media, the better...no brainer....

3) the movie, the magazine cover stories will propel her into the "savior" of the Conservative party.


thoughts?

Sarah Palin has absolutely no chance of becoming the POTUS. I think she is smart enough to recognize that negatives in the 60 or 70 percent range precludes that. She's also smart enough to realize that there's way more money in being Sarah Palin than there is in being President. Add to that the fact that she has yet to put together any sort of campaign organization in any of the early primary states then the picture is clear. No 2012 run for Sarah Palin.

I hope she doesn't run. Right now, virtually any republican could win--except for Palin.

She won't make it to the convention, I'll be very surprised if she puts her name on the ballots, and I'll be surprised if she actually does a televised debate.

Her main MO seems to keep her profile up by doing campaigning-like traveling.

you see

i think yes of course she want to be always in the media...

and the idea of her NOT running is that she wants to be the "king maker"...

but so far, it looks like RomneyCare and Bachmann are leading...

i can't see her endorsing either one especially Bachmann since she is the "other woman"

on the other hand,

she thinks she can beat the other republican candidates because she has such a strong base... and a movie to boot

she would be running against a 9.2 unemployment rate, black and maybe a citizen, obama...

the twist is even if she lost, her story would be she ran against obama...like jesus against the satan

oh to imagine the debates!

Including Gingrich? Bachmann? Paul? Cain? There are plenty that could not win, leaving the Democratic competition aside and just looking at the competition within their own party... Or, in the case of Ron Paul, what people are comfortable with.

I suppose it isn't too late for Gingrich to make a comeback though.

I agree with Besson, most of the Republican candidates have no chance against Obama.

They are just not as good of a liar / actor.

Not only that, but the candidate will have to deal with the tea party and the base that wants them to sign conservative pledges and shit.

Many of the tea partiers are idiots. It started out right, and got corrupted along the way.

I don't think she'll actually run. I think her job now is acting as stalking horse.
