    Any specific hopefuls you can think of?

    And common sense is lost on all you cons, because that's exactly what you're going to do. Hell, even Rove was forced onto the Palin bandwagon to save face. Given the populism movement we're seeing now, I'd say Disney is spot on to what plenty of tea partiers want.

    And could you please stop stereo-typing all liberals? It gets a bit old, and logically its baseless.

    you didn't just make a generalization

    how much are you willing to bet that Palin will be the nominee?

    I have a k that says she won't be. You want to make a bet. You appear to be a gentleman of honor. Your word is good enough for me

    I really don't like gambling, and its a gamble to project that far ahead into politics. I'm willing to support Disney's statements about Fox because they operate as a business. I'm not willing to bet anything that Palin might actually be the presidential nominee. In truth, I think its msot likely the media will spend most of its time covering Palin (if she runs, but I think she's going to at least try), and the rest of the GOP candidates are going to be left out in the cold. What that ends up causing is above my pay-grade, but I imagine its bad for the GOP candidates.

    My generalization about conservative people having no common sense was sarcastic.

    I would say that Palin is the odds on favorite at this point to get the GOP nod.

    well knowing lots of high ranking Republicans including the newest senator (elect) from Ohio as well as 4 of the 5 founders of the Federalist Society and knowing that none of them see Palin as a viable contender in 2012, I would argue you are wrong.

    she is unelectable and those who run the party know that. she has been demonized by the press and was unable to overcome the picture they painted of her

    Re: I want Palin on the 2012 Republican Ticket!

    I read a lot of news - a lot.
    I don't watch any 24/7 news (Fox, Msnbc, Cnn)

    How is she popular? To whom? Where? Does anyone actually see her on tv at all anymore? I haven't seen her in quite some time.
    The only time I see her discussed is on this forum

    Thus leaving me to believe that only people who watch any 24/7 news - or come online to forums - care.

    And you know what that tells me about everyone? Everyone's NOT paying attention to REAL news.

    Now - all a Republican would have to do to rebuke a Palin/Obama run for office is to merely enter the ticket.

    If the Reps had Palin and Someone Else and the Dems only have Obama - then the Palin would be the foil to the Someone Else and would make Someone Else look oooh so appealing.

    It's psychology - proven to work time and time again:

    I disagree. Palin is extremely popular among the Republican party base. I think she is probably the most popular of all the front runners. The nod is hers if she wants it. The question is whether she wants it.

    God I hope she doesn't run. Not for political reasons, I just don't want to be forced to read anything about her.
