    Maybe she could convince people that there is a veritable lake of oil just under our feet, if only the wacko environmentalists would step aside and let us drill.

    Then, we could make her the health care reform czar, and she could take care of those death panels.

    Yea, I'll be very disappointed if he runs and wins. We need someone fresh and new. Someone who will think outside the box to get us off the path we are on. Hopefully we will have made some progress in that direction by 2012.

    I think you have Palin all wrong. She wants what is best for the country and if that means getting someone better than her into office, she'll do it. I think the only way she will run is if the ones throwing their hats in the ring are not conservative enough. That's not likely to happen now that the people are finally engaged.

    http://www.nytimes.com/2010/11/07/we...1&ref=politics

    exit polls say women voted republican for the first time in the history of exit polls, going back to 1950

    a 17 point female swing away from the party of pelosi/obama

    the crucial catholic constituency similary careened crazily 21 points my way since 08

    independents came around by 36!

    low earners (under 40K) and hi earners (over 200), urbans and rurals, voters in the northeast and west---obama the magnificent managed the impossible, UNITING all these disparate interests in OPPOSITION to the obnoxious

    do you think this is SPIN?

    from the times?

    seniors comprised their biggest slice of the electorate since 1982

    and you know how gramma and grampa mumble against obamacare

    but no worries---obama tells 60 minutes tonite that what he's learned outta all this is, "leadership isn't just legislation, it's a matter of persuading people, giving them confidence, bringing them together, setting a tone..."

    LOL!

    how old were YOU when you first appreciated that success in american politics starts with sensitivity to the voters?

    well, it's NEWS to barack hussein

    what an idiot

    Tim-
    We won't need to settle for Huckabee. I don't think Rep. will have to hold their noses again like they did in "08 for McCain. I think the people have had enough of choosing the lesser of two evils.

    I'm not shocked that the polls look the way they do following a big Republican victory. That said, I would hope fellow GOP voters think twice before putting Palin or Gingrich on the ballot. That would be a very unwise move indeed.

    agreed-the public perception of Palin is an intellectual lightweight

    the public perception of Newt is a an arrogant know it all

    neither wins against Obama

    Palin would never run for office, she's tried that before as part a VP candidate and it turned into a disaster. Although I know the 2008 campaign turned into her coming out party, there's no denying that she's turned off millions of people to the McCain/Palin ticket.

    Palin is best suited to exactly what she's doing now, being pretty, being folksy, and rallying people but never actually having an official position in either the Republican Party, or an actual political office. Besides she's making more money than she has in her life by being exactly that person, she'd have to give it all up to lose to Obama.

    Not me. No way. I was supporting Huckabee in the last election cycle, until he announced that, if elected, he would change the Constitution for Jesus. That killed my support for Huckabee forever. If Huckabee wants a theocracy, let him move to Iran. But none of that crap here. This is America.

    As much the idiot that Palin is, I would take her over Huckabee any day.... Wait, is death by flatulence an option here?

    Of course, I will be supporting Ron Paul again. Since he now has a supporter in the Senate, he might get 3 votes instead of 2 this time. LOL. But seriously, Ron Paul is still the real deal, and the only true "old-fashioned" Conservative in the field. If he decides to run again, I would consider it an honor to tilt at windmills with him.
