I read today that Reagan didn’t announce until November.
It would be really difficult to wait that long.
She still has my full support.

It seems like she’s either waited too long or is about to have waited too long, just speaking from my perspective on that.

I can’t see the strategic benefit in not announcing yet. The race seeming to be well under way, I don’t see how a late joiner can expect to take the lead, but then again, she is a great woman, so maybe she can.

Yup. She said she would give us an answer. Stop speculating and let her do it. She runs, she runs. She doesn’t, we seek another candidate.

Sorry, But I read Sun Tsu and IMO see ‘clearly’ what she’s doing. If I’m wrong, life will go on....But I doubt I am ;) Give it a read. “The Art of War” and tell me of anything looks familiar to you.

I’m still waiting for Palin. This household will not vote for Perry. I still believe a Palin/Rubio ticket is the answer.

She will announce if and when she is ready. I find no excitement in the current bunch. The same old, same old.

Sarah nor anyone on her staff said or hinted that Constitution Day was the day of the announcement

Supporters speculated that could be the day just as many initially thought that September 3rd was the day of her announcement - the only things certain is that Sarah said the drop deadline is “by the end of September”

It could be this Monday, it could be this coming Friday or the last day of the month on September 30 - who knows but Sarah and Todd

But she is too late in today's political cycle. This isn't Reagan's pretty much unimpeded run...

Governors usually don’t tap another governor as a running mate. I would say a senator (not Rubio) along the lines of Ron Johnson.

Election is still over a year away. I’ve got nothing but time. I know I’m not voting for Romney and I doubt I’ll vote for Perry. So if Sarah still isn’t in it come November of 2012, I’ll find another date.

So here’s some further analysis...other than $, what is the real reason she’s doing what she’s doing...please don’t anyone out there take the purist approach...$ is a BIG part of it,not just defending her country...why then would she have stopped 1/2 way through her gubernatorial term to do anything but prepare to run...that’s where I scratch my head...maybe she was going to but isn’t now...

What do ya’ll out there say about a VP slot? Could she be eying that? If so, what incentive would Perry have for offering it over someone else like a swing state? Kasich is too new to be a VP, what about FL, PA, VA?

She is smart enough not to run with such enormous unfavorables. Besides, at this point, Perry would eat her lunch.

Maybe she is waiting. Maybe. No matter when she enters (if she does), it will be a game-changer.

The longer she waits the less time they have to vilify her. We’ll see.

Well,until she says yea or nay,my South Carolina primary vote goes to either Cain or Bachman.

Since Perry doubled down on his goodies for illegal alien invaders and called everyone who believes in the strict enforcement of immigration laws racists...

forget him.

Not running. And going VP again, immediately after the last election, would be a huge mistake.

She may be doing the right thing. Stay out of the way and let all the other candidates and the press sling mud. People have a tendency to get all excited about a candidate and then as things start to come out or another candidtae looks better interest wanes and everyone moves on. Remember Cain? For a while here on FR all you heard was “hop on the Cain train.”

Now it seems Perry is the man but as his stance on immigration and other things gets more exposure his popularity is already going down a bit. Watch for Sarah to jump in at the very last moment. It’s the smart move and Sarah is smart.

Wow. That's a really sophisticated, objective argument. Palin must be so happy she has such "dedicated" fans.

So your opinion is somehow superior to mine (and many others)?

Shot up your own self you vacuous zombie unable to think for yourself punk!

I can only thank yo for showing us all what passes for “argument” in many who support Her Most Holy.

There are real people who support Gov. Palin. Then there are her sycophants.

Get lost creep.

And don’t threaten me again, sonny boy.

You ask for my thoughts? Big mistake. Sarah P. is not waiting, she is preparing. Money is not an issue for her, therefore she doesn’t need to jump in and raise cash. Name recognition is not an issue for her, therefore she doesn’t need to run around shaking everyone’s hand in Mason, Iowa. Her platform is well-known, her army sits quietly and polishes their muskets, the enemy approaches... See the whites of their eyes yet? Not yet... not yet.

“I’m starting to think she’s holding out for Perry’s VP”

That right there is an anathema statement to her forever supporters.

I wonder if you can be forgiven for daring to voice that speculation.

I don’t know. My confusion lies in the fact that on the one hand, she is said to have planned on a “late” entry - late compared to others; on the other hand, look at all that has happened in the meantime. She steps into it, if she does, in a situation not foreseen when she made her long ago late entry plan, if indeed that’s true.

Romney is toast, unless...

The conservative vote is badly split among a multiplicity of candidates, each scrambling for their piece of the vote whether or not they have a prayer of winning...

I still think Romney has a big problem due to where the primaries are. We have to wonder, where other than NH will he win?

Perry has a more open road. It looks to me like, right now, it’s Perry’s to lose. However, if Sarah runs now, into that situation, people who support others would have to drop their support of the others and fly to Palin to make her vastly superior to Romney. I’m not certain that would happen.

People of the establishment GOP might be able to rally a “Romney because he’s not Palin” cause.

Yep she should have got in months ago...thanks for your excellent and spot on analysis!

To use an FR term-perhaps she is an Eternal "Lurker." Maybe she enjoys skulking in the political wilderness gathering mega bucks leading on the poor Palinista's.

Speaking of Palinsta's it turns one off from their candidate by their ad hominem attacks. They forget "one catches more flies with honey than with vinegar.
