Duncan Hunter / Sarah Palin Ticket ?? -- Thinking Out Loud - By: FReeper David Osborne
David C. Osborne (My PERSONAL thoughts) ^ | 30 August 2007 | David C. Osborne

Posted on 08/29/2007 10:07:55 PM PDT by davidosborne

.............. AND ....

.........

So there I was.... wondering what the "ideal" ticket would look like in the '08 Presidential race..

As many of you know from previous posts I was looking for a Duncan Hunter / Fred Thompson ticket.

I later scratched Fred Thompson off my "dream team" list for reasons discussed in other threads, and have been "searching" for someone to put in the VP slot of my "wish list".

Well Sarah Palin's name came up in a recent discussion, and I can't believe that I never thought about her as VP material before --- but after further considetation I am seriously thinking I might I have finally found my DREAM TEAM TICKET.

Looking for some FReeper input on this idea......

Thanks !! and here is a link..

:) Personally, if I was Duncan Hunter, I would want someone old and experienced like Dick Cheney. I would be too distracted by her to ever get anything done. I know, I know. I’m a sexist! So shoot me!

upsdriver.. ok my FRiend.... I was looking at this srtictly from a political standpoint. but since YOU brought it up.. Sarah Palin is a rather attractive individual.. however, the fact that she is a strong conservative is MUCH more attractive in my humble (very happily married with children) opinion.. :)

Her bio reads pretty good too. Maybe we could get busy drilling at ANWR. Also cut taxes, reduced waste and a lifelong NRA member. I would hope she is prolife.

Is that really her kids names? Track, Bristol, Willow, and Piper? Sounds liked good names for hunting dogs.

I tend to agree with you pa. I've never wanted a woman in those high offices. Local government where schools are supposed to be governed and whether to build a grocery store or a nursing home on the corner of Walk and Don't Walk. If women belong in government, local governments are perfectly suited for them. The community life can prosper with men and wormen in office. Just look what happened when Palousy got elected. DISASTER. Or maybe, home with the kids and the cat and dog waiting for dad to come in the door so they can sit down to a balanced, hot supper.

And there is the issue of not throwing a skirt at Hitlery (not that she'd know what it was). Lets stand big, tall, men with deep voices that command attention against that screeching harpy. One harpy is one too many. Terrible. Can't stand it. That's not to say Sarah Palin is a harpy or anything negative for that matter. I don't know anything about her. I just want our top officials to exude strength just by looking at them. Not arrogance. Strength. When they walk in a room they get the E. F. Houghton treatment. Let that first impression be a super one. Can you even imagine the asides at a table full of big wigs sitting across from Hitlery and choaking when she opens her mouth. "Not good Norman, not good."

All IMHO of course.

Frwy,

You are not alone in your thinking about “Women in high offices” -— personally speaking it is not an “issue” for me — but is one that must be considered — having said that —— IF America is ready for a female VP -— I think we found the best of the best in Sarah Palin (pronounced PAUL-IN) I think we will be hearing this name more often as we approach 2008

Not relevent to her qualification to be VP... but some interesting triva.... it is bound to come out anyway.. so I thought I would post it here....

http://www.wonkette.com/politics/sarah-palin/gilf-update-gov-sarah-palin-as-miss-wasilla-219635.php

Way back in 1984 — the Van Halen reality, not the George Orwell novel — Alaska’s new governor Sarah Palin was an Alaskan beauty queen. She would’ve been 18 or 19 at the time. The only problem with this great tale is that it appears she was in college in Idaho at the time. Meaning, it’s obviously true. Topless Alaskan beauty queens … hooray for America.

Wonkette operative “PN” says this is her portrait from those Golden Years. We say she’s still the best-looking politician in America … and remember, she’s a Maverick!

Well, considering that Hunter has no shot at all of being on top of the ticket (not because I wouldn’t want him to, but it’s a fact), the whole premise of this thread is busted. But, I think the name that you’ll see come up a LOT is Charlie Crist, the governor of Florida. He’s not the most conservative Pubbie, but his approval ratings are sky high in a state that absolutely MUST go red for us to have any chance of winning the White House.

I’d rather have Jeb Bush - my favorite governor even though I disagree wtih him and his brother on the issue of immigration, but I don’t think people want another Bush in the White House, at least not yet.

If you forget that she is a woman for just a min, and look at how she overcame the odds and was elected Gov. of Alaska, that alone should impress you... then look at her conservative values and the deal is seald in my view..

Sarah Heath Palin (born February 11, 1964) is the current Governor of Alaska. She is the youngest governor in Alaskan history (forty-two years old upon taking office), as well as the first woman to hold the office. In addition to being Alaska's youngest governor, Palin is also the first who was born after Alaska achieved statehood. She is also the first Alaska governor not to be inaugurated in Juneau, instead choosing to hold her inauguration ceremony in Fairbanks. She took office on Monday, December 4, 2006. Her Lieutenant Governor is Sean Parnell. Palin is the former mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

Palin's education includes a degree in journalism from the University of Idaho. She briefly worked in the media and utility industry.

She served two terms on the Wasilla City Council and became a two-term mayor and manager of Wasilla, one of Alaska's fastest growing communities. She was also elected President of the Alaska Conference of Mayors.

In 2002, Palin made a failed bid to become the state's lieutenant governor, coming in second place behind Loren Leman in a four-way race, some say due to her inability to raise campaign contributions equal to that of her opponents. After Frank Murkowski became governor, resigning from his long-time U.S. Senate seat, Palin was considered by some to be a candidate for that job, however Murkowski appointed his daughter, then State Representative Lisa Murkowski.

Governor Murkowski did appoint Palin to serve as a commissioner on the state's Oil and Gas Conservation Commission which she served on during 2003-2004, but later resigned, in protest over what she perceived to be the "lack of ethics" of fellow Alaskan Republican leaders. This included the state party's chairman, Randy Ruedrich, a fellow commissioner, who was accused of doing work for the party on public time and providing a sensitive email to a lobbyist. She filed formal complaints against both Ruedrich and former state Attorney General Gregg Renkes, who was eventually found not guilty.

She served an elected term on the Valley Hospital board. In 2006, Palin won the Republican primary for Governor, defeating then-Gov. Frank Murkowski; she went on to win the general election in November 2006, defeating former Gov. Tony Knowles.

In July 2007, Gov. Palin was heralded in the media as being the most popular governor in the United States, with an approval rating often in the 90s.

I would vote for her as governor of my state in a minute.

But, I share the opinion of the male chauvinistic pigs on this thread (tease). I, as a woman, would never vote for a woman running for President or Vice President.

I’m still of the mindse,t a leader of the Presidential magnitude, should be someone strong, like Duncan Hunter. That means for the Vice Presidential position too.

Hillary doesn’t represent what a woman running for high national office has to be like. Neither did Geraldine Ferraro. Elizabeth Dole was more like it, although she had some flaws but was nothing like either of those two. I’m looking at individuals. Man or woman. Men have great advantages, in general. But a specific woman just might trumph them depending on the individuals involved in a race.

Old_Mil,

Like I said just thinking out loud... it’s good to share ideas... and when Sarah Palin was first brought to my attention I did a little homework and decided to post this thread... FReepers make “research” easy... I figure if there was any oposition (other than the fact that she is a woman — I don’t think she can control that -—) that it would come out...

FReegards,

David

RightFighter,

I resisted commenting on your post at first but I just gotta respond to that.. did you know that folks said the same thing about Sarah Palin when she ran for Gov? — In fact. it is my understanding that the Republican Party Elite — STRONGLY OPPOSED her candidacy — But the PEOPLE spoke and the rest is history -— the same will hold true for Duncan Hunter — no matter how many folks say “I think he is the best candidate, but he can’t win” — the PEOPLE will decide in the end... and IMHO — the people WILL GLADLY welcome Duncan Hunter once they take the time to consider the options — the simple fact of the matter is that the only folks seriously discussing politics right now are the political “junkies” like you and I.... and the rest of FReeperland

FReegards,

David

So, another spineless naysayer champions another globalist one worlder Jeb Bush! Or moderate (am I being too kind?) Crist. Yawn. Some people are incapable of learning.

When one keeps making the same mistake and expects different results one should be labelled incompetent and not permitted to vote. When one pushes anti-American theories while pretending to be a Christian Conservative, one is normally called a troll.

I like her and I wouldn’t have a problem with her at all. To name a VP this early might get the media attention Hunter needs. Once people know about him I think his odds are better than most that they will vote for him. For those who are wanting a man that will strike fear into the hearts of the opposition, how about “The Nuge”? McCain just thinks he is a loose cannon and a maverick. heh
