    Palin and McCain will campaign again

    Two problems here: how long does McCain plan on staying in politics? A 6 year commitment is a long time for a dude his age.

    And with all the crap that has been thrown around regarding the campaign, I would've thought they'd part....but apparently not.


    The Arizona Republican announced Wednesday that the former Alaska governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate will join him in Phoenix on March 26 to help campaign for his re-election to the U.S. Senate.
    ......

    Palin has criticized McCain's campaign since their loss, saying in her book "Going Rogue" that there was substantial tension between her advisers and McCain's. She also details how she was prevented from delivering a concession speech in Phoenix on Election Night, and how she'd been kept "bottled up" from reporters during the campaign.

    Palin hasn't criticized McCain himself, and the senator has stood by his decision to choose Palin as his running mate and has staunchly defended her.

    Earlier this month, McCain refused to discuss material in "Game Change," a book that says Palin's vetting was "hasty and haphazard."

    I think Palin is going to hurt McCain's chances, as she did during his presidential run against Obama. Right now there are 2 Republicans ready to challenge him in a primary, Chris Simcox, and Jim Deakin, with JD Hayworth also considering a run. Whoever wins will face a tough battle against Napolitano, if she decides to leave Obama's cabinet and run for the Democrats. McCain doesn't need an idiot on his side this time. He should deep six Palin as fast as he can. Without her, he can hold the seat, but with her, he stands a better than even chance of losing, if not in the primary, then in the election itself.

    McCain and Palin were never on bad terms....Former Romney staffers on the McCain campaign are the ones that had problems with Palin.

    Right....
    Does anyone now (expect maybe G. Beck and a few others) believe that Palin is an asset to Repubs?

    Looking at what happened in NY23rd, she is likely to stab anyone that doesn't agree with her politics 100% in the back (metaphorically).

    Right, a metaphor for taking her rifle and firing instead

    I think it's a pretty safe bet that commentary that includes calling Palin an "idiot" is commentary that should be followed with a second opinion.

    I don't think Palin hurts or necessarily helps his campaign.
