    By contrast, Sarah Palin didn't know where Africa was on a map, and told people that she knew foreign policy because she could see Russia from her porch.

    However, I might be willing to give Palin another chance. Perhaps she can learn from her experience on FOX News, but she has a long way to go from being the albatross that sank McCain to being a real contender.

    When primary time comes around, I'll take Brown. He is going to be in there, and he is very intelligent, takes time to research and understand the issues, communicates his positions with deft skill, has his finger on the pulse of his electorate, knows what the hell he is talking about, and doesn't need to use fake props like Joe the Plumber. This is in stark contrast to Palin who, at this time, has none of those qualities.

    For those (especially Democrats) who are laughing at the thought of Brown running a successful campaign in 2012, don't forget that Obama also came out of nowhere to serve less than one term in the Senate, and then become president. Brown will wipe the floor with Obama if he runs. I predict he will run, and I also predict that he will be the next president. You heard it from me.
    If I'm not mistaken Reagan was called dumb way back when, too. They also said he had Alzheimer's before he left office.

    I think Palin needs to get rid of the folksy way she talks. I know she made some mistakes, but did you hear Obama stumping for Coakley? Not the great orator that night. Maybe he was tired from the trip. Or all the closedoor meetings. Maybe he was still trying to get the C-Span cameras up, so we could view the talking.

    Re: GOP's Brown wins Mass. Senate seat in epic upset

    There's a lot of crap in this thread, but there are also some very interesting posts.

    The idea that Dems are "quaking in their boots" is as silly as when they said conservatives were imploding. Many Dems heard this message loud and clear, and that's something that is good for our country. It's not just about "nah nah we won this time!" It's about being heard in Washington. And this message was heard loud and clear (though I'm not too sure Obama heard it).

    I like him. So far, I like him a lot. He's been saying what many of us have been saying, but no politician had the balls to stake their career on it. He may have thrown a few Hail Mary passes because it was a seat he didn't have much chance of winning. This could just be the perfect political storm for this special election. But if Senator Brown keeps it up, he is definitely a contender for higher office. It's way premature to think about the presidency, though. And I do not want to see this man on a ticket as VP. I'd rather wait a few elections and let him be the top dog on the ticket because that's where he belongs in the long run. He's not anyone's junior.

    Which brings us to Sarah Palin. Brown reminds us what we saw for a moment in Palin ... we thought we were seeing the real deal. But I think for her moment in time, she was too much of a lightweight. I lost interest in her aspirations when she stepped down as governor. I think she is where she belongs right now ... on television as a commentator. She has some good points, but needs more. Should she polish her education, she may have a future. But she is not in that position right now.

    And that brings us back to Scott Brown. I think he is what we hoped Palin would be. But he has more. He hasn't even been sworn in yet, and he's already effected change in Washington. Even Senator Kerry looked a little intimidated to be standing next to Brown today. It's not hyperbole to say that everything just changed. It did. And no one saw it coming.

    Thank you Massachusetts!

    Obama isn't as good of an orator as he used to be. He's losing it. He was a master-campaigner because nobody challenged him, or found ways to pick on everything possible.

    Watch the clips of him trumping for Coakley. Pretty sorry stuff. He tried to make fun of Brown, but didn't know his record, and his truck comment wasn't funny. He's losing it. I'd say he's getting flustered. Life isn't as easy as it was in the Senate. Tsk! Tsk!

    After Obama's record, anybody might look better.
    I will vote for any reasonable candidate the GOP puts forward in 2012. I'm that desperate to see Obama gone, but I won't vote for Palin. I think many independents would feel the same way.

    So if Governor Palin is the candidate you will vote for Obama or help him get elected by not voting for his opponent........

    Really smart.........

    Standard "progressive" tactic - the "politics of personal destruction".

    Why? So she can sound like some machine made Vassar Graduate?

    Would you be saying this if she had Michelle Obama's "negro dialect"?
