    The way things are going with the Tea Party, its going to take them too long to establish themselves as powerful as the Dems and Reps.
    There is no Tea Party. Never was and that is the problem. There is a tea party movement that is a wing of the Republican Party. The difference is significant and important beyond two simple capital letters. They had the opportunity to build for 2012 but decided to stay as Republicans.

    As a centrist Republican, I can see the benefits of a Palin candidacy; mostly in that she would get landslided which would ultimately push the Republican party more towards the center. That said, I would most prefer this not be the route we take. There are far better candidates than Sarah Palin and to nominate her would not mean good things for the GOP electorally.

    See man you just keep giving more good reasons to get her up in the election. I NEED to campaign for her in the primaries.

    The other side of this argument is that you can not over estimate the rationality of the American people in regards to who they'll put in office. I believe Palin would lose badly, but there will always exist the outside chance that she doesn't and we are faced with the reality of her Presidency. Scary...

    Here is the difference between Obama and her. She governed a state with a population of less than a million. Obama was a senator from a state where his area alone was nearly 4 million. He embodies the American dream and is more educated than any president we have had since I have been alive (other than Bush Sr I would reckon). Most of the people on this board probably have a FAR better education than her.

    You are high if you think there is any kind of comparison between some cheerleader and a guy actually trying to get **** done.

    Anyways librep I thought of that to, but I'm willing to take my chances. I think America could handle 2 years of her (she will fall out somehow within her 4 she HAS TO) if elected.

    How dare you confuse the opposition with actual facts and the record. What is this place coming to when blind bias can be so easily defeated?

    she governed, he did not. and i find it funny that libs are so big into egalitarianism except when it comes to education (of course if bush got into Yale because white preppies were cut breaks that's bad but if Obama got into harvard law with grades that no white man was able to gain admission with that is great because Obama was "an oppressed minority")

    Truman didn't have a college degree. Reagan was hardly a Columbia Phi Beta Kappa. Those are two of the best presidents in the modern era.

    Obama is not more educated than Clinton who was a Rhodes Scholar holding a Yale Law Degree
    Obama was not better educated that Jerry Ford who was a top student (and all american) at michigan and then a top student at Yale Law School or Nixon who was top of his class at Whittier (He was accepted at Yale but Whittier was more affordable) and then graduated at the top of his class at Duke law or even W who had degrees from Yale and Harvard B school.
