She keeps talking about this being an unconventional election cycle, so what does that mean? A candidate entering a primary late does not make an unconventional election cycle. I think Palin does want to run, but she wants to make a risky gamble. I think she is going to announce that she is not going to run in the republican primary. Once the primary is over she will watch the Media turn on Romney or Perry and whichever one it is will be destroyed. Palin will then launch a third party campaign. I do not agree with this approach and I think it could ruin her career, but I have been wrong about Palin and her career moves in the past. The third party idea is so crazy that it's probably what she has in mind and it will probably work.

If she goes 3rd party she’ll pull about what Perot did: 20%.

The Republican nominee will get 35% and Baraq will win with a Clintonian plurality.

I’ve no idea what she is doing, and until the day she does decide or not decide to get into the race, I’m not going to concern myself with her, because there is no point.

I will say this, the longer she waits, the harder it will be for her, in my opinion, because others are already sticking their necks out and putting their asses on the line by participating in these debates, and she isn’t.

The “Third Party” approach is disaster for Republicans and a sure Obama second term...I hope we are far too level headed to resort to this solution. Romeny or Perry must not win exactly for this reason....As willing as the media is to build up Romeny or Perry they can just as easily destroy! I think Gov. Palin will announce she will not seek the Presidency but endorse Cain....then Cain will win and ask Palin to be VP. CAIN/PALIN 2012!!!!!!!!!!!

If she goes third party I will lose what little respect I have for some of her supporters on FR.

She knows better.

Give her a little more credit than that.

Personally, I think she is positioning for VP.

Third party is the last thing on her mind. I think she’s waiting to see if Cain is for real, and if he is, she jumps on his bandwagon (as she’s been making noises to that effect already). If not, she runs.

I don’t think that she would take the VP slot again, but I bet she’d take Secy of Energy.

I think that she wants an advisory role of some kind.

No risk, no accountability, but a chance to make an impact.

If she runs 3rd Party - she will be skewered by Rush, Levin and Hannity on a daily basis. That’s before the MSM gets involved.

Perot was not conservative, so his running third party did not split the heart of the Republican Party base but it did split the over all GOP vote. A Palin third party run is brutal bloody tea party type infighting.

Would be the disaster of disasters for all involved....except Obama.

The 3rd party idea is stupid and Palin will not do it. I do agree though, it is possible she may draw out the tease campaign a little while longer by only announcing that she is not running for the Republican nomination for President. She may even drop by and visit with Trump the clown again in order to encourage this idea that she might run 3rd party. At the end of the day though, she will not run for President at all and will endorse the GOP nominee no matter who it is.

Give her a little more credit than that. She knows full well that would ensure Obama's reelection. She won't let that happen.

I agree with you fully. I think it is a terrible idea. She needs to quit thinking it. But, then again both me a you could be wrong. By the time the Republican primary is over Perry or Romney could be the nominee and either one could be trailing Obama by 30 points. Why? because the media will be digging through either Romney or Perry’s dirty laundry.
I don’t know the future but I think Palin’s behavior, and comments that she has made in the past about holding the Republican Party accountable, indicate that she is retaining this crazy idea.

It will fail miserably and she will be a pariah to any GOP or Right leaning person for decades having handed Obummer another 4 years to destroy the country. There is no reason to pull a stunt like this unless she knows she is going to lose in GOP Primaries with base voters.

The only way I will vote 3rd party is if The Republican is named McCain.

Yup, Palin isn't a fool. There is no way she'd do that. Even those that defend her now would shred her for a 3rd party attempt - that includes Rush, Levin, Hannity, etc.

Not only will she only pull a Perot-type rating, the Repukes and Dims will ban together to destroy her presidency by blocking every conservative measure she proposes.

She is aware of this. And that is why this is not her plan.

My view is that the Axlerod/Olberman/Maddow crew will push hard for Dems to crossover in open primaries and vote for Mitty. A reverse Op Chaos.

I think Mitty is the only R candidate that would guarantee a Tea party candidate in most states.

Obama can either be a landslide loser in a 2-way or a plurality winner in a 3-way.

I gave up trying to figure out women a long time ago. I doubt she would run 3rd party unless some republican scandal came up so bad that ensured Barack Obama’s second term. She has too much respect for her country. Pray she say Yes soon.

I never know which way she is going to turn. I though resigning as Governor was a great mistake, but from a career perspective it was a good move. She is in the chips now. Sometime I think that if one can think of the most improbable thing that Palin will do then that is most likely what she will do.

I don’t think so. The liberals are not really aware of the Mitt angst on the right - and if they announced such a plan, it would sink Mitt’s candidacy.

I believe she’s already said she would not run third-party.

However, I guess she could back someone else running third-party.....

I knew her resignation was brilliant the day she did it: see this published the next day: http://www.americanthinker.com/2009/07/palin_v_pundits.html

And I can tell you, a third party run would end her career - and Beck’s too if he jumped in and supported her decision and Obama was re elected.

If you were really a Palin bot you would know the others have said it is supposedly in Palin’s book (s) she will never do this.But then again Trump said this too and went back on it and will if he does not like the nominee.
