Worth a try, anyway...
She seems like a reasonable person.
Perhaps she can be convinced to reconsider?... :D
Only if you want to guarantee a 2nd Obama term...
It is time to order from the menu, my friend.
Give it up, man. It’s over. She’s not going to be president. And it’s her choice.
Draft her as head of the RNC. She would just light things up and flush out the Grand Old Potty and just kill the Dems. She isn’t gonna run for President.
Oh GAAAAWWWWWWWWWWWD !
That’s silly, leave the woman alone.
Do you have so little respect for her and her family that you think you can force her into doing something she’s decided she doesn’t want to do?
"As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision. When we serve, we devote ourselves to God, family and country. My decision maintains this order."
How much louder do you want her "NO" to be?
Why not just climb on board the bandwagon for your second choice?
Nope, best get on with what’s out there... wherever she puts her stamp of approval, that’s who’ll win the R nomination. My money is on Herman Cain...
Why would you want to draft Palin? Many of her supporters have joined the Cain Train and think he is just as wonderful.
Of course, Cain doesn’t have a record as a proven leader like Palin but that’s okay cause he SOUNDS like her.
Already settling on Cain.
Thing is, it wasn’t too late for Palin to join the race this week, and it’s not too late this weekend.
People change their mind sometimes.
Let’s see how Herman does. (I’d say let’s see how the rest of the field does, too, but I’m realistic.)
The thought has crossed my mind as well. Wonder if that has been her plan all along.
She has said this campaign will be different. However with Cain gaining steam I don’t see it happening.
Draft her for what?
There you go. That's whattam taking about.!!!
Not about things like this.
Parents who’ve been living on a rollercoaster with their family, who’ve poured their hearts into something that they believe in, and then come to the prayerful decision that it just isn’t possible, don’t whiplash the family back into the race just because a bunch of people WANT them to do it.
This isn’t about wanting. This is about what is best for her and her family.
It isn’t about her supporters, anymore.
It’s about her personal life. Why can’t you see that?
She said NO! I know we all love Palin but we have to play the hand we are dealt..... Time to check out the Republican Field and pick which canidate you like and support them...... (Even if she did jump in now it would have to be 3rd party....and we all know how that would end!)
To try to draft her from this point on borders on nuts.
What part of NO is so difficult. Heck, no is the same word in several languages. She said no, that’s it.
I can see it.
I admire and respect it.
But this involves America’s future. That’s not simply drama.
Our nation is at a turning point. This could change the direction. It’s important.
Time for you to give change a chance!
So... it appears we`re past denial and we`re on to bargaining. The grieving process moves forward.
In all seriousness.. she said “no”... not “maybe,” not “possibly,” but “no.” She`s not interested in subjecting her family to vicious attacks from the “media” and their masters in the democrat party.
At least for 2012, the Palin-for-President segment is over. Let`s move on.
You may be right.
She knew she wasn’t going to run in June. She isn’t going to run and probably cannot run because she never left FOX. She was most likely called in by FOX once again before the bus tour. Remember that? They wanted to make sure she wasn’t running because the bus tour sure made it look as though she was. I am certain FOX would not want to be hit with lawsuits over letting her campaign while being paid by FOX. Obviously she told FOX she wasn’t running. That is why she said she was doing the tour to inform the people about our history.
She drove a truck over too many people in the pursuit of the fake campaign.
The worst part about letting yourself get conned is admitting it and moving on.
What leadership role has Palin completed that's beyond comparable to what Cain's completed?
Let’s see — God and Todd said no.
You say yes.
Gee, I wonder who she’s going to listen to?
You’re not respecting her.
You’re not even listening to her. You’ve moved onto to pleading with her.
My problem with that is that I really don't have a second choice. She was the only one who was up to the job, as far as I can see.
This isnt about wanting. This is about what is best for her and her family.
Palin herself said in her announcement that she was concerned about doing the best thing for 1) God; 2) Country; 3) Family -- IN THAT ORDER. And I think she means it.
I really don't know how to go about drafting Palin, but I would love to see it happen. I like Cain, but I think we have a vacuum here, nonetheless.
As for the usual Palin haters who are appearing on this thread, if your candidate (whoever) is better than she is, then there's nothing to fear.
Meantime, I'm pretty much waiting to see what happens next. But this is certainly something to consider. And it has happened many times before, when the base wanted someone the Establishment didn't.
>> Cain doesnt have a record as a proven leader <<
You really don’t want to go there, do you?
She doesn’t want it...
Oh yeah, suuurrreee- and, and, if she still says no, KIDNAP her and MAKE her campaign and then MAKE her take the oath of office. Yeah- THAT’S the ticket! A president that has to be FORCED into office! /sarc
Jon Lovitz, is that you??
Can you believe this? BTW, I want a pony.
While you plead with her to run, she’s going to be off at speaking engagements, making money. Then the holidays will come. She’ll be doing what she has always done, sending out a tweet here or there, poking at Obama. And she’ll appear on Greta’s show, because they’re friends. But it won’t change anything.
She’ll be busy, living her life, enjoying herself, and time with her family.
And you’ll still be hoping that she’ll change her mind.
She’s not going to do that, though. She’s already moved on. You just haven’t noticed.
She made a decision. Live with it and grow up.
Isn’t this the same line of thinking that gave us ‘it depends on what ‘is’ means’. No doesn’t mean no now?
Ya gotta laugh.

I really wish you would find a quote from a different movie.
Got any from Bogie?
“No no on your lips, yes yes in your eyes” does not apply here. Time to look at the other candidates.
Sorry SoJo. You know who my comments were intended for.
Herman is my dog in this fight, I picked him last week and I have also contributed to his campain. Maybe Palin for V.P. if not then how about Sarah heading up both the DOE and EPA. This will also be a tax saving to the American people.
Not me, I want a unicorn. LOL
All we got now is a jug earred jackass.
I moved straight to anger and have been stuck there, and impossible to talk or live with, ever since, LOL!
Given my heritage and temperament people like me never move to the other stages, especially grief, unless it’s other’s grief.
Then we feed...
Ya know the Like Button on Facebook?
Turn it upside down....
Her decision was made with much prayer..she’s NOT going all the way away. She’s young.
Onward and upward to unseating Barry!
