Former Alaska governor and most undecided nonpresidential candidate ever Sarah Palin said she was "game" to a future political office run on Fox Business -- and started a firestorm of speculation about brokered conventions and her possible role in making the Republican Party a strong presidential contender in 2012. Some have pushed the idea of her taking the vice presidential slot again. But speculation aside, when did Palin become the Republican Party's idea of the cavalry?
Palin said she would help America any way she could. If it meant "running for office at some point in the future, I'm game," she said.
Bernie Quigley at The Hill offered a possible Palin nomination at the Republican National Convention to offset a possible Jeb Bush nomination. He makes it sound like an East vs. West, establishment vs. mavericks kind of matchup.
The problem with a Palin/Rick Perry ticket (Quigley's dream team) is that it would appeal to few independent voters, something seen as necessary to win in November. A moderate Republican/very conservative Republican might form a better duo, thus allowing a place for Palin in either slot -- but most likely the vice presidential berth.
Even Newt Gingrich floated the idea in December that choosing Palin was within his consideration parameters.
But is that what the Republican Party needs? Will the four remaining presidential candidates be so desperate for a base infusion by the time of the RNC in Tampa, Fla., in August in August that it will consider such a polarizing force as their running mate?
Then there's Mitt Romney. How would Palin's record (half-term governor, ethics violator, reality show host, hard right polarizer) help him in reaching the presidency?(continued)

Since it appears that: no one else can deliver the message as well, shrill or not.
Is she supposed to apologize for making everyone else pale by comparison?
To a far left whacko, if your a woman and your a conservative that’s considered an ethics violation. To those far lefties, a woman cannot be Conservative or pro life
When did an anti-Israel Jewish homosexual become the GOP’s chief strategist?
Krugman's sales pitch.
Sarah spoke truthfully and Saul is full of sh*t!
Ron Paul is Jewish?
Who are you talking about?
“When the Himalayan peasant meets the he-bear in his pride/he often shouts to scare the monster/who will often turn aside/ But the she-bear thus accosted will rend the peasant tooth and nail/ for the female of the species is more deadly than the male...’’ Sarah Palin, Moma Grizzly!
