Sarah Palin's show just started and goes on for something like 3 months. What are the implications of her announcing any time soon while this show is airing? Since CFR is dead, are there any ramifications here?

I hope she does run.

>>>Sarah Palin’s show just started and goes on for something like 3 months.

8 weekly episodes = 2 months.

The GOP field will wait as long as possible. The risk/reward is to go to early. many of them are waiting on Palin. thune admitted this in an interview. If she runs many will sit out because they know they can not break through the media frenzy that a Palin bid will make.

So I don't see a great rush for the GOP to announce. I'm thinking feb or Mar will be the time for the GOP to enter the race.

the GOP group will also be looking to wait and see how the new congress and Obama works out. If Obama goes to the center and his numbers come out that will make others think about not running and wait until 2016 like Hillary in 2004. The risk/reward equation favors late entry on the GOP side as well as the dem side.
