    Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) caused a minor stir last week, insisting in an interview, "The single most important thing we want to achieve is for President Obama to be a one-term president.... Our single biggest political goal is to give [the Republican] nominee for president the maximum opportunity to be successful." The Washington Monthly

    What? #1 priority isn't jobs? The economy? Healthcare reform? Wall Street reform? The things Americans want fixed? Well, surprise, surprise...

    The GOP needs to get away from this. I think Rubio would take an entirely different approach.

    The American people, by a decent majority, elected Obama because they wanted to end the wars, fix healthcare, get rid of the people who drove us into economic collapse. He's the one that built his platform with those planks. So, he's the one that got elected.

    In resonse, the GOP pretty much replied "**** what America wants" because it went against big buisness and so many special interests that fill their campaign chests. So they sat on their hands, filibustered and fought the change that Americans voted for at every turn.

    As a result, they won the next round of elections? Duh? Don't make sense to me either. But it was a fair election. Now is the time to work on what the American people want. Healthcare, education, jobs, economy and the end of these going nowhere expensive wars.

    I think if Rubio was in charge of the GOP this could happen. I could get behind him. But I think what is going to happen instead, is just just more years of do-nothing, worthless GOP politicians raping the national coffers while the rich get richer and the poor gets poorer. But, and I hate to say it, America will get what it deserves. We voted for it.

    Really? Who in the potential Republican crowd is more popular among the base of the Republican party than Sarah Palin?

    True...there may be those running the party that would love to see her shrivel up and disappear, but there is no one in the GOP today that is more popular among Republicans than Sarah Palin.

    Seeing as how none of the clowns in DC will ever be honest enough about what they do to put on a clown suit, Palin on the ticket would be the next best thing.

    Maybe that will be the case someday -- when the rest of the nation has the slightest clue who he is, what he's done, and what he stands for.

    Are you suggesting that that's already the case?

    Repub 2012 candidate will be, relatively, a "dark horse". It won't be Palin, Newt, or McCain. It probably will not be Romney, or anyone else who ran in 08.

    Jindall, deMint, a R governor or senator.... most likely.

    The Republican base is tired of "Same old same old, good ole boy network" candidates and wants someone relatively fresh.

    It seems many identify more with Palin than Obama. Rasmussen: Voters feel closer to Palin than Obama, 52/40 Hot Air To be honest I'd rather have her as president over Obama, and I think she could have a chance of beating him in the 2012 elections.

    There's a difference between someone identifying with someone more, and thinking that person is the best candidate. I also couldn't help but notice a little caveat in your link,

    Among the Political Class, however, 68% say their views are more like Obama’s, while 63% of Mainstream voters describe their views as more like Palin’s.
    And quite frankly, the average American stopped being important a few decades ago, when special interest groups started drowning him/her out. I'd love it if Palin ran too, because on the campaign trail, people will remember why we didn't put McCain and her in just a few years back; she has no substance, all she has is polarizing rhetoric.
