    Let's remember why she stays away from legitimate press. Those facts make her head hurt.

    Re: Palin to make high-profile visit to Iowa

    remember the time mrs alaska twittered something about "death panels" and almost within hours the entire party leadership cravenly caved?

    Senate committee scraps healthcare provision that gave rise to 'death panel' claims - Los Angeles Times

    LOL!

    doesn't it remind you a bit of the funny little, crying dude in tennis shoes merely mentioning energy czar van jones, leading to another same day dismissal?

    Half-term Governor. The job of running a welfare state was apparently over her head.

    Convincing people to vote for you has nothing to do with mental intellect; rather a confident personality, opinions people agree with and a good PR campaign.

    She spends the majority of her public speaking time bashing Obama and talking about sticking to conservative ideals and "restoring honor to America" without offering any clear cut plan of fixing this country, besides "don't do what the Dems are doing". That sounds like a definitive plan...


    With that said, the reason I didn't mention Sarah's intelligence in my "reasons why I wont vote Palin" is because if she were at all intelligent, she would have hit the books as soon as she lost the elections with McCain. She was humiliated during the campaign due in part to her lack of sophistication. So I honestly don't know if she's learned her lesson and smartened up. She certainly has smartened up about the U.S. constitution. But there's more in the world than just the U.S. and the constitution. I need feel confident that she knows about the rest of the world.

    Still, I'd never vote for her any time soon for the reasons I listed earlier.

    Yet McCain DID have a clear cut plan and approach - and still everyone tossed him aside.

    It seems that a plan or a solid direction is NOT what the majority gives a damn about.

    Do you really think the majority of Dems who jumped on the Obama wagon REALLY know anything about any of his policies? They were merely following his campaign rhetoric and were swept up in the hailstorm of 'the first black president' mania.

    Re: Palin to make high-profile visit to Iowa

    Sarah Palin was a half-term Governor due to being found guilty of an ethics violation. She abused the power of the Governor's office in going after her then BIL's job for the crime of being in the process of divorcing Palin's sister. She was found not guilty of a violation in firing the hatchetman who was tasked with trying to get Trooper Wooten fired during Palin's Troopergate malfeasance.

    Before she was punished, she left. Her leaving was most likely negotiated.

    No party nominee has ever quit while representing their party in the quest for the Presidency. What will we end up with if Sarah becomes the first to do so in 2012?

    Look at the candidates she's backed! Folks the "experts" said didn't have a chance.

    She's elevated her stature big time. I hope she runs.

    .
    Now, I cant say what would or would not have happened had there been more people voting, but it is VERY hard to judge what will or wont happen in upcoming general elections when all you have to go by is a primary election, in which only 55,000 votes were cast.
    All this means is that the ones who came out to vote for the primary were mostly people as far right as Palin and her candidate du'jour.

    Not many are disagreeing with that - though some will argue that "it's the way that violations are brought up against the mayor/governors/etc - " as an excuse.

    I'm not excusing her, at least - but why do people still focus on her as if she's going to be a viable candidate in 2012?
    There are other, bigger fish to fry.

    I do agree that Mccain did have a plan, and while I did not agree with him idealogically on many issues, I still respected him. His mistake was Palin. He chose an unproperly vetted running mate, and it destroyed his chances at being president. Oh, she made a great name for herself, and is now making a veritable fortune off of it, but she was the reason he did not win the presidency.
