    No, she will not. She's not qualified and she knows it. Any chance she had in 2012 was shot the moment she resigned as governor.

    Romney will run, and lose. IMO, it'll be either Pence, Gingrich, Pawlenty, or Daniels. Though of course someone else might also unexpectedly come into the picture.

    I suppose she could be foolish or arrogant enough to run. But I'll give her the benefit of the doubt that she knows better.
    I voted not likely.

    Will she run? Probably. Will she win? Almost certainly not. She is more polarizing than Obama...that takes some doing.

    I think Romney gets thrown out there unless Obama looks really weak, which considering the economy should be in decent shape by then is unlikely. The rest are better off waiting and not facing an incumbent. All that assumes you are right and Palin does not run.

    What is her incentive to run? She can wield more money and influence as media personality, and all she has to do is play to her strengths in firing up the base. Any election against an incumbent is already a gamble against the house, and to win she would have to somehow manage to appeal to the moderates who actually decide elections. Its a lot of effort and risk with not much more of a payout at the end.

    I say not likely, unless they want to ensure Obama wins another term. I think she flipped on some important issues and quit her job as governor which her opponents will exploit the hell out of.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Of course not she won't run. She is able to make more money now running the conservative rally circuit.

    This is why she quit her governorship in that she can make more money doing sound bites than digging down and working hard for the constitutents.

    It is easier to sling mud at whoever is in office than to be the one in office trying to dig ourselves out of a hole.

    She might try it, but I doubt she'll get far. I honestly think she killed any serious chance she had of furthering her political career when she resigned as governor of Alaska.

    Romney has his health care problem, which is a huge deal considering how much importance is being placed on Obamacare (and yes, it will still be an issue if it still exists in 2012). And even without that, he has the same problem he had in 2008 of inconsistent and often changing views.

    The popular narrative right now is that it'll be Palin versus Romney, but I don't think it'll be either. Even if Palin runs (unlikely) she won't be nominated; there's the inexperience factor, plus she's a controversial figure even within the GOP. And she's unelectable, and most Republicans realize that.
