    You are corerect palin does electrify people. She most cfertainly electrified people to vote for Obama over Mccain in 2008. She certainly illustrates the problem with the republicans and drives people away from them so I guess the people who should fear her presence are the right. The dems are not afraid of her as the only place she could be victorious is a red district. The only people who are afraid of her running are republicans who would have to deal with her idiocy if she did. palin has a very loyal base of fanboys, but they were never going to be democrats at all, and they are the types to be worked up and vote in any election. She is an extremist who cannot get anywhere outside of a republican area, and even there she would have problems with primaries.

    But feel free to love her. I am just telling you that shaking from her opponents is them trying to stifle their laughter.

    Obama won in 2008 for racial reasons. Not because of people disliking Palin. McCain only had a snowballs chance in hell until Palin was his running mate.

    Meh. I don't know that Obama won for racial reasons. I think Saddam Hussein could have ran on the Democrat ticket and won, after 8 years of Bush.

    That's why I'm praying that she does run or at least inserts herself in a big way in the 2016 race.

    Sarah Palin....the gift that just keeps giving!!!! Run Sarah Run!
    I do hope from all the news she reads (as she reads "all of them"), one of them bothers to tell her she is committing to a 6 year term, which is 3x her normal commitment.

None of those lawsuits amounted to anything.


    Tim-
    So your point is that electing her would once again bring up all the frivolous lawsuits and cost her constituents?
