    I could only hope that $istah $arah wins primaries everywhere.
    She is poison to the republicon party and will assure their loss when ever she takes part.
    She is responsible for the registration of more Democrats than Dick Nixon.
    HA!

    So, just put up another Romney or McCain next time? And why are you concerned about her image, did Lincoln have a good image?

Bear in mind the portion of the electorate most effected by the smears and attacks on Palin are those that voted for Obama - twice.

    I'm not. The people I mentioned in the quote you highlighted are. And no, I wasn't a fan of McCain at all, and not all that excited by Romney either. Neither are conservative. The right has to peel off some of the people that voted for Obama in order to win. That shouldn't be too hard, but I don't want two strikes against a candidate (however unfair) before the campaign even begins.

    The two issues may not be simple, but the media wants more and will get it. As far as social issues, what is Palin proposing that the federal government do that's driving everyone away?

    But we are talking about the tea parties themselves, not candidates they help to elect. It is crucial for their cohesion and potency that libertarians and moderates do not walk away. They did, in many places and to a significant extent - and mostly because the media convinced them that the truce on "social issues" had been broken by conservatives.

    The choice isn't dualistic. You can put up a better candidate than Romney or McCain and not put up Palin. I agree with Humbolt that she just isn't an effective candidate for national office. Last I checked she had a -60 favorability rating and she has pretty much become a punchline in the national media, fair or not. Regardless of whether it should or not, it means her chances of winning the presidency are essentially zero.

    I doubt that's the case since the Democrats count on most of their new voters to come from the bottom of the population strata where the ability to write and afford an ID is optional.

    People don't get excited over moderates. And favorability ratings go up and down over time. I think she would've had a better shot than Romney.

    But people get excited to vote against candidates like Palin who have essentially become punchlines. In my opinion she would run as a national version of Christine O'Donnell, and end up with a map closer to Goldwater/Johnson than Obama/Romney.

    And favorability ratings don't tend to fluctuate like that, especially for politicians entrenched in negative favorability. Maybe some10% swings, but nothing like it would take for Palin to be viewed positively.
