    I think she is just fine where she is at. Palin being cannon fodder for the Democrats to dump on. But it is strictly up to Alaskan's to decide the question you asked. They are the only ones who have a say that counts.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

    I think Half-Governor Palin would make a great addition to Congress. She has become a caricature of herself and she is doing a hilarious job of it. Better even than Tina Fey. She'd be hell at filibustering, reading Bartlett's Famous Quotations. Though having used it as the core of ALL her speeches she probably could cite it by memory. If she wants to run for Congress she'll have no problem finding dark money. She's already a Koch sucker. Tea baggers, dummies and fools would be thrilled to see Palin run. Then again so would Democrats.

    For the sake of our country? No.

    For the sake of laughs? Absolutely.

    And...as I said...I'm not interested in your whining about the media. I'm talking about you.

    2.Elected officials do quit one office into to move into another office.THey just do not quit.
    This is what you said:

    So...are you now telling me that the reason WHY someone quits DOES make a difference? Or, in your opinion, does it only not make a difference if you're talking about Palin?

    Are you applying different standards depending on the person?

    I like Sarah Palin, but she hadn't "read" the law either.

    I don't think she knows how to read, that is why I love her so much. We progressives have a soft spot for special needs folks.

    No, but she should absolutely run so that Democrats have a chance of winning in Alaska.

    In all seriousness, literally the only important issue I agree with Palin on is the oil tax she established in Alaska, and that has no relevance when we're talking about the federal government, so a strong no without hesitation from me.
    Social democrat is no longer an accurate description of my views.

    Not at all.

    However, I suspect you are applying different standards to her than the ones you apply to him...at least, in regard to quitting their jobs.

    Why did Obama quit those other jobs? Was it because people said mean things about him and quit being in political office altogether? Was it because he wanted to make money on book deals do guest spots on MSNBC instead of holding office? Or did he quit because he moved into a higher office?
