    I think her effectiveness is entirely dependent on where they intend to place her in the campaign. No one can honestly deny her popularity among the conservative base. Obviously, this means her support is potentially advantageous to perceived moderate Republican candidates, like McCain. If they use her appeal in the more conservative districts of Arizona, they may inspire more voters to to actually vote, and vote for McCain.

    As for his age, I believe that is for him to decide. There are no rules against it, so that's that.

    How is that a bad thing?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Which says nothing about Palin's high intelligence.

    Or in other words, she is not a party hack that will support anyone with a "R" next to their name.

    Re: Palin and McCain will campaign again

    From Sarah Palin's Facebook page:

    I want to again thank the good people of Massachusetts for propelling a commonsense, independent agenda forward! May the working man and woman feel empowered now more than ever to get involved in their government, and let's put this great country on the right track.

    The past year continues to offer the promise of commonsense government in so many areas. There are steps we can all take to get there, one of which is to support candidates who promise to fight for the people and against politics as usual. I'm excited to get out and help elect candidates who will bring those principles to our nation's towns, state houses, and directly to Washington D.C. We are already making plans to support the candidates our nation needs to make a difference and speak for everyday Americans.

    I look forward to helping Governors like Rick Perry in Texas, Representatives like Michele Bachmann in Minnesota, and heroes and statesmen like Senator John McCain. We will support these candidates and others so that they can continue to fight for our American values.

    The special election yesterday in Massachusetts was truly amazing. It is a clear indication of things to come and a demonstration of the momentum we all share in the fight for the values and policies that will get our country back to work. The commonsense conservative principles of liberty and fiscal responsibility are on the rise, and that's why I'm going out and campaigning as hard as I can to make a difference. I can't wait to join all of you in supporting these great candidates and many more over the coming months.

    In the meantime, visit the websites of Rick Perry, Michele Bachmann, and John McCain. And join us as we embark on America's journey to November!

    I suspect she may give McCain a boost in the primary considering her popularity with the base, but may drive off independents and moderates in the general election. Honestly, I don't care much as campaigning is purely up to McCain and she isn't running for office herself.

    Wrong.
    Even McCain's campaign manager said he would have lost by more without her.

    McCain shot himself in the face... running against Thee Hollow Candidate he ran away from everything that would have KO'd him.

    I hope she runs and takes Alan Keyes on as VP.

    I respectfully disagree. She lost all credibility with me and lots of other folks when she make the stupid statement about the bomber on the Christmas flight showing "the system works." And I'm an Obama supporter! I wouldn't elect her as a cook to a mess hall.
