The fact that so many dems and far left hacks have wet dreams about Palin being the nominee is one of the reasons why she will never get that position. the people who actually run the party realize she has no chance and she won't get the financial backing down the stretch even if she runs. Same with bat girl
The party leaders don't pick the nominee, the voters do. John McCain, John McCain Bachmann will give Mitt a run for his money.
