    Sarah Palin is "virtually unelectable."

    Sarah Palin Is 'Virtually Unelectable' | The Atlantic Wire

    PPP polled seven individual states and found that, in a contest between Palin and President Obama, she gets just 77 percent of the Republican vote. That's behind Gingrich, Romney, and Huckabee, despite her greater popularity. "Republicans may hate Barack Obama but there look to be a pretty meaningful percentage of them who don't hate him enough to vote to put Sarah Palin in the White House," Jensen writes. "When you combine that with her complete lack of appeal to Democrats and independents she looks virtually unelectable for 2012."
    Good news.

    That's what I am saying.
    Palin is on track to become another Glenn Beck, not another PotUS. From her behavior, I think that she, (and/or her handlers), know this.
    I may be wrong.

    fellow progressive Democrats please keep this under your hat.... we do not want the GOP to know this.

    The line should be RUN SARAH RUN.

    Re: Sarah Palin is "virtually unelectable."

    caribou barbie has excellent political instincts
    she can gin up the campaign donations via the teabaggers
    causing her to be a true contender

    while i think she is more about now converting her public image into personal wealth, than actually running for elected office, it would be premature to insist that her candidacy would be less than formidable
    we only need to look at the boost her VP nomination gave to the flagging mccain 'the fundamentals of the economy are sound' campaign to witness that she has a loyal following
    in the meantime, that young, liberal base Obama must retain to earn a second term is in rapid decline
    we are negotiating about dividing a pizza and in the meantime israel is eating it

    damn it, quit making it so obvious
    at least feign the pretense that she could actually be a viable alternative

    Or a Newt Gingrich, without the intellectual flair (not necessarily in a negative tone, but rather because her public stances are anti-elitist liberals.....which is typically something of an intellectual habit). She can really raise the profile of certain conservative voices to the public, and has the potential of getting them elected or appointed to certain offices.

    Re: Sarah Palin is "virtually unelectable."

    Do we have a count on how many palin threads were started by Conservatives vs. how many were started by liberals or others? I'd bet money that fewer were started by conservatives... mostly because WE don't think she's nearly as important to the GOP as the liberals and others seem to think she is.
