    I personally did not vote for him because I figured him to be four more years of the same.

    Don't know about that, but Palin's lies and pure B.S. will catch up with her if she throws her hat... The woman lies about the stupidest things and them blames MSM for fact-checking.
    UPI says different

    Palin legal bills likely exceed $600,000 - UPI.com

    ANCHORAGE, Alaska, June 22 (UPI) -- Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has likely racked up more than $600,000 in legal bills battling ethics complaints, the trustee for her legal defense fund says.

    That story says they don't know how much was donated to her legal defense fund.

    And the fact check story debunked the whole thing.

    Accept it now, that she lies, and later on it won't come as surprise.

    - She is a far-right conservative

    I simply don't trust she would listen to the non-conservatives of this country.
    The Alaskan people elected her to represent them... She should have be returning the voters the favor-- represent Independents and Republicans, and her Dem supporters in Alaska, but instead she was making money by doing speeches and raising money for republican interests ONLY.. and outside of Alaska.

    As an Independent, I would NEVER vote for!

    She can't be trusted..

    This has nothing to do with women..

    I don't really like Clinton's policies, but I think she is extremely intelligent.. I actually like the thought of Clinton vs Palin, just because Palin couldn't play the victim card as much then. Yes, I think both women dealt with sexism while campaigning, but Clinton hit the sexist back just as hard. Clinton deserves to be icon in women's history as far as I am concerned.

    I don't think Palin seems very intelligent. She is not articulate AT ALL. Beyond the talking points she has no ideas or nothing to offer.

    And Biden is just the smartest and most wise decision for Vice President?

    Honestly - I don't know who's worse. I think I rate them both equally negative.

    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.
    I'd hardly say McCain got tossed aside, with 45% of the votes.


    But Palin is not acting like a leader right now... she's acting like a megaphone for the conservatives. In my opinion she has placed herself too far to the right to win an election. You need more than just the support from conservatives to become president. And she is lacking in strong bi-partisan support right now.

    Things could change for her in the future, but I doubt she will have a chance to become president in 2012.

    Please don't misunderstand me. . . .

    I hate Palin.

    Wrong...

    1 Palin wasn't popular with the RINOs. She was immensely popular with conservatives.

    2 McCain lost the conservatives because he was too close to the Democrats. The great successes have come when the Republicans have offered a clear distinction from the Democrats

    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.

    .
    Are you kidding? I would love her to run. She is far too ignorant to ever make a serious run at anything beyond governor of Alaska.
