    That's only the extreme republicans, the moderate conservatives, and independents won't vote for her.

    What Republican do you see as having the best shot at the White House?

    Exactly I know many Reps that wish she would disappear. Shes nice for rallies but the people she rallys arent really wanted except in EXTRA votes. So she is more valuable rallying not running, the extra votes she would bring running wouldn't matter compared to the votes shed lose. She would also drive away the majority of Inds and Dems that might think of voting for that side. cause they would head for the hills with her on the ticket.

    She would lose. If nothing else, the fact that she quit as governor of Alaska after 2 years seals it.

    Re: Do you think Palin could beat Osama?

    Here's what I would think of Palin if I were a Rep/con.

    She's good at outlining conservative ideas and ideals, but when it comes to breaking down and explaining the complex and nuanced problems that our country faces both at home and abroad, and solutions to these problems, she fails completely. She's a good TV personality and a great walking talking point, but that's about it.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    Legion, but small legion.

    The GOP will never, ever, never allow Palin to be nominated. Can't happen. Won't happen. Never happen.

    Palin has the political brains of an aardvark. There's no secret there. She is a media phenom. She IS bright enough to know she can ride that media wave to more money. The GOP will allow her to shuck and jive as long as her doing so deflects the public from the real truth and that is the GOP is only slightly worse off than the Democrats in fielding someone who isn't a complete zeroid in 2012.

    Obama is crap. He sold out hardcore Democrats a year ago. HOWEVER, Palin has no chance at beating Obama. As pissed as Democrats are at Obama, as dissatisfied as centrists are with Obama, as disgusted as Independents are with Obama most will not cross over and vote for Palin. Not a chance in hell. On top of that many Republicans won't vote for Palin. Bottom line? She can't beat Obama. She'll never get the nomination from the GOP.

    The GOP is already sucking hind tit. That's pretty bad considering how disappointing Obama has been! Palin isn't it and she has already been told that the party will not support her nomination. Her plan is to run for John Kyl's seat. As completely hosed up as Arizona is Palin will not even get Kyl's seat in Arizona. Not a chance.

    I would imagine hardcore Dems want her on the Republican ticket because it guarantees them victory. I know I shouldn't speak in absolutes buts its the way I feel, its my opinion and haven't seen anything to suggest otherwise.

    A lot of liberals feel this way, but I don't. I have many friends my age who are repubs/cons and I would completely embarrassed for them and their party if they chose someone like Palin over, say, a Mitt Romney. If Palin gets the nomination there is something seriously wrong with the GOP (and our country) and its future.

    She wouldn't beat him. She would probably get a decent percentage of the vote (the party line voters who would vote for pretty much anyone the repubs ran), but she would lose badly among independents and swing voters.
