Palin might need Gingrich. The rest of the country doesn't.

Palin might win with one hand tied behind her back, but I’m not sure she could carry a 73-year-old Gingrich across the finish line.

I'm a big SP fan, but I can't see her running for POTUS until she retires the 'quitter' meme. The Begich(D) Senate seat in AK is up in 2014: the only reason why the late Ted Stevens lost that seat was a bogus 'Rat-instigated corruption charge which was eventually found to be unwarranted.

Sarah should run for that seat: it's an almost certain GOP pickup. And since the ethics rules are different for federal office, she wouldn't have to personally pick up the tab to defend against frivolous ethics complaints as she did when she was AK's governor. That would put the 'quitter' meme to rest for good, and set her up for a POTUS run in 2020 (if we're all still here ...).

You picked my top choice combination for ability and experience, but I'm looking for a second choice that is (1) electable in the primaries (Newt can't get the nomination even against as weak a candidate as Romney), (2) conservative (what's the point in electing a professional politician who wears a "GOP" jersey but doesn't believe in conservatism, such as Chris Christie?), and (3) willing (what's the point in hoping for Sarah unless and until she announces that she is willing?).
