Well, this will shape up to be an interesting election season if she runs.

In the same interview, Palin announces that she might run for president and that she has voices in her head. This will end well.

:D

RUN SARAH RUN!!!!

I pledge to vote for you in my states primary.
I pledge to put up a lawn sign to encourage others to vote for you as well.
I pledge to do all I can to make you the GOP nominee in two years.

I guess sometimes dreams do come true.

who, for example?

Pawlenty, Santorum,Pence,Barbor,Jindal,Thune....I would vote for them over Palin in a primary.
I would not vote for Romney, Huckabee or Newt
However, I'm still hoping for someone out of the main stream to step up and say they are running. Maybe someone I've never heard of or maybe Herman Cain or Steve King.
I'd really like a Chris Christie or Marco Rubio but they aren't gonna run.
Don't get me wrong. I think Palin would do a great job. She's just too controversial.

If Palin runs not only does Obama get a second term, but he will have the house and a veto proof senate. Sort of like when McGovern ran for the democrats.

Just the threat of her running will dry up money for the other potential candidates. Looks like the reps of today are like the dems of the 70's. I think their primaries are winner take all so in a contest of six candidates, someone with name recognition like Palin will smoke the field.

What is wrong with Romney and Huckabee? I don't really like Newt so I can understand that..

I like her. I agree with most of what she says. But....I don't want her to run. I don't think she can win.

It would be awesome...We could have cameras in the White House all the time. Bristol can dance while she tells us not to have sex, Levi can show up to pose nude every now and again while his mom deals drugs on the street corner near 1600 Penn, and President Sarah can show us how to skin a moose during the White House Easter Egg hunt! (Or pose in front of a slaughterhouse as she pardons the turkey...)

Reality Shows rule!

Oh, but she'll probably still be under contract at Fox News so she can do whatever Rupert Murdoch tells her to do (then again, you'd get that with Mike, Newt, or Rick...so there's nothing unique about that...)

I hate to say it.. but I would hate to see her win the primary for the fact that I would hate her being the first woman to run for president on a major party ticket. I'd like to see a woman get the ticket because she is a strong contender, not because it's sabotage and people want to see her F up. :(

I would hope people would be intelligent enough to not do that, but I'm not so sure...
