'Let Christie finish fixing New Jersey, then he can seek the presidency if he wants.'

The first step of running for office has always been the denial of wanting to.

I highly doubt Chris is wanting to run for POTUS. He already has his hands full dealing w/ NJ.

Perhaps sometime in the furture, yes, he may consider, for now I believe him. He, as well as the rest of us, see what happens to those who run.

Besides, I think he wants Sarah. Just my HO.

From your Gallup Poll link:

"Now that the 2010 midterms are over, the big question swirling around Palin is whether she will run for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. Given her high name recognition and broad popularity among Republicans, 80% of whom now view her favorably, she is clearly in a strong position to seek it." _______________________________________________________

Also from my Gallup Poll link:

53% of independents view her unfavorably

That's the crux of the matter right there. It's these apolitical, non-ideological, mushy-headed registered voters who refer to themselves as "independents" that, unfortunately, have the power to swing an election. A portion of those 270 electoral votes are in swing states, y'know. I WISH there were more solid red states like Texas...but there aren't. I WISH there were enough conservatives in the country to effectively render the independents/swing voters irrelevant...but there aren't. I WISH she had enough persuasive political power...but as we saw in Washington, Nevada, and Delaware, and her own state of Alaska, she doesn't.

That's what I mean by "let's be realistic".

No paternalistic condescension intended.

Again, this is not coming from a hatred of Sarah Palin. She would make a GREAT President. I would LOVE to see her kick Obama's a$$ in November 2012. (Imagine the reaction by the MSM! Katie Couric wearing all black the next day! The View ladies! xD)) But I just don't think she'll win.

I was wrong to say she has NO SHOT at winning, but I will say she has LITTLE CHANCE of winning (at this point in time, anyway. Who knows what the future will hold?)

I'm just about at the point that if Ann is against something these days then I might should look into why I shouldn't perhaps support it. Here of late it seems Ann is awful busy climbing in and out of bed with some very strange (alleged) Conservatives that do not (even pretend to) represent me and my families values. In short, Ann has most of her credibility of late with this conservative.

“I think it would be a step down for her to run for president”

This doesn’t make sense. Which is it—Palin can’t win or it would be a step down for her?

If Coulter is sincere, she wouldn’t say this. The most potent political platform is the presidency. You can’t step down to it.

I’m convinced Coulter has a hidden agenda.

“Palin has no shot”

But Coulter opposes Palin running because it would “be a step down for her.”

Comes down to: Coulter’s argument against Palin running is incoherent.

I think he's right, if you think reflect that an "annalist" is the same thing as "historian"...

Wink, nudge.

Cheers!

Nothing experimental about Palin: unlike Obama, she loves America.

And unlike Obama, she knows her own limitations and will choose solid advisors, not Marxist ideologues.

Nice try, though.

Hi, troll-boy.

Maybe you haven't noticed, but numbers among the mushy-headed are fickle.

Obama's ratings shot up after Tucson, and have now fallen back to their accustomed abysmal state.

Do you really think the Madison antics (coupled with Jersey, coupled with New York, and together with whatever shenanigans the SEIU will pull off in the near future), together with $5.00/gallon gas, will make Sarah Palin *LESS* attractive?

I mean, I know the $17.00/hour paid to union thugs in Wisconsin looks good to you right now from your mother's basement, but trust me, this is America. With a natural-born citizen in the White House and a Tea-party filled House and Senate, you can do a *whole* lot better than that.

Vote for Sarah in 2012 and you'll get to experience it for yourself.

BTW, you do have your GED, right?

Cheers!

After having a failed 40-something president who had minimal experience, I think America is going to want a different type next time. In fact, if the two major parties make it Obama v Palin, I expect a serious 3rd party challenge.

He has got to do that. If he does, then he can think about jumping in.

What strikes me is that since she regained her feet with the debate with Biden she has not wobbled. Obviously she is a quick study and she has been doing the cramming that the snobs urged on her in 2009. She has good instincts and gobs of guts. But events will determine the outcomes. I look forward to the May “debates.”

If he succeeds, he’d win in a walk, I think.

Unless he blunders as Daniels has. The attempt to separate social conservative from economic ones is a mistaken strategy, as Phil Gramm found out. Phil’s problem was that his opposition to social liberalism lacked any real conviction. The same seems true of Daniels.
