    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.
    Palin, like most other political figures, has an enormous ego and a lot of ambition. Regardless of what it would mean to the GOP or her career, I can tell she's definitely intrigued by the possibility of being the nominee (shopping spree!). I don't think one can assume, based on what we've seen thus far, that she is perfectly satisfied with what she's got.

    Rubio/Jindal. Now, that would be a ticket.

    One thing, for sure, the Libbos wouldn't be able to scream, "racism", at every turn.

    Ultimately, I think Obama should worry less about which Republican he has to trun against and worry more about which Democrat he has to run against.

    You now not to change topics but I hear you complain about being called a racist a lot, but I've never actually seen anyone do it here.

    They'd beat Obama for sure
    Right now anyone can beat Obama. I say lets run a fool and a idiot and they are better suited than Obama to run the country. Brighter too.

    Rubio would be too inexperienced (just as Obama was in 2008) to be President, I also don't like the idea of stifling a lot of potential by putting him on the ticket as vice-president.

    On this thread, maybe. But, this is only my second post, too. Give it a chance.

    I meant ever. And I mean specifically being called a racist for not being an Obama-manic.

    I recall people calling you other things myself included but I don't recall anyone calling you a racist.

    Then, you obviously haven't been paying attention. You and Wiseone, both. However, why this thread is suddenly about me, I dunno.
