So how would that work with all the deadlines various states have with getting on the ballot?

The rules have changed since then. Even in the good ol' days, you really needed the cooperation of the establishment to pull it off. (Favorite Sons, Uncommitted slates, etc.)

“So how would that work with all the deadlines various states have with getting on the ballot?”

Say you are oing to run, make sure you can get on the ballots in all 57 states, and go to the convention selling yourself as the alternative.

In other words, get drafted.

May I ask you a question? Why don’t you put most of your posts in the news/activism? Because the topics here may not be seen but a lot of people. Could you may be try to ask the mod to put that in news and elections so that can be spread a bit better. Thank you so much :-)

Don’t ideal conditions have to do, with perhaps a large cast of candidates, a crowded field if you will - none of which particularly standing out.

Primary votes end up split, among various candidates? Some appealing to one group of voters. Others appealing to another. Enough candidates continue to compete, that eventually no numerical winner actually emerges first time through?

At which time, delegates are released from their original candidate?

I bet the GOP could set up a situation with this year’s field, on purpose. Actually.

(my apologies if I’m totally messing up the concept)

Modesty is a good quality :-) But for Sarah we need to make as much noise as we can and make sure as many as people as possible are aware of the "Reconsider" movement. When I go to Hotair...yes, Hotair..after all the hatred I saw there against Sarah before she said she was not running, now you see a LOT of those haters coming around and starting to say that the field is so freaking pathetic that they are wondering if Sarah would not have been better....er...after all.

That's why may be we should try to really alert all the people we can to let them know what we are doing and try to ask them to join.

But thank you so much for all you do, 2ndDivisionVet. I hope you are ok :-)

St this point I think that would be a bad move for Republicans. I certainly think that Mr. Cain would do well to have Sarah Palin in his cabinet, particularly in the energy field. If she stepped in at this point, she would hurt Herman Cain the most, and she likes Herman Cain.

The California presidential primary is June 5. I vote by mail. If I don’t see a substantial improvement by one or more of the declared field between now and late May/early June, I’m writing her in, whether she reconsiders or not. These guys need to start running to win this thing, not to be the poor sod giving the concession speech.

You have not guessed yet? Sarah Palin. The left gave us a newbie - a mean one - I will NOT vote for another newbie, even if he is less men that the one we have now. We put the bar so low with obama and we do the same with Cain. What an ego thinking that he does not need to learn the issues..oh well, I guess the intellect of the population went so low that even conservatives now put the bar under the ground.

Cain is a very good example of total incompetence at governing or knowledge of basics foreign or domestic issues, but yet, everybody loves him.. Sorry, not playing that game. our country is way too far gone to put another "learn on the job" guy there.

Thank you so much! Then may be if you could go to C4P and help the "Reconsider" movement that would be great. Look, I am not a dreamer but I would be upset with myself if I don't do something to help this cause. Well, if we don/t succeed and Sarah absolutely refuse to come back and save this beautiful country, then that's it. I am very upset she bailed out but I still have a little hope.

I cannot even imagine her endorsing any of these candidates. So is she going to let the country dies? If so then she is not who I thought she was.

But then that will be my fault to have had faith. But as for now, I am still trying to fight for the ONLY good cause. After all Georges Washington did not want to be in the White House either but he finally did. I am hopeful that if we have an enough large number of people who ask her to come back, may be she will if she thinks We The People have done our job - enough of us called her. Oh well..we still have one year. Let's keep the hope :-)

The folks behind the TV ad need to do some research regarding deadlines across the country.

The field is set. Time to move on and pick someone acceptable or least unacceptable of the group.

I’m going to stay on the sideline, though I totally agree with you.

I was an early and enthusiastic Palin supporter. I pretty much crashed and burned when she backed out. I mean, it really hit me hard.

I am still stunned. However I refuse to cling.

I believe Palin by backing out harmed America. That probably strikes many as absurd and melodramatic, but I still believe Palin’s circumstances leading up to this election were a once in a generation pivot point, an opportunity to actually alter the course of American history.

Seriously. I still believe that.

I’ve stopped being bitter, but I’m not ready yet to try to support her unless and until she looks at what is good for America.

I understand the whole family thing, but she was our best hope.

She really was. Her quitting was a very negative thing for the GOP and for America.

I have to agree.

I believe that Palin’s faith was weakened, and her withdrawal was a victory for Satan.

Newt’s rise is the same.

I believe Palin’s faith is probably resolute and unchanged. I respect her choices, even while I think she made the wrong one.

However the lack of support she received from the GOP establishment was most likely what caused this.

Given your thoughts about Herman Cain, count brain dead democrats as your closest political allies. Herman’s about as smart as Reagan, when commonsense in factored in. And, please slither on through here, before the scabies start jumpin’ off.

Obsession is an unhealthy thing. Palin isn't running in 2012. Period. It's not going to happen. It's long past time to move on and let Sarah stick to the political commentary and advocacy that she apparently feels is more her calling at this time.

Many conservatives still see her as the best standard bearer going forward into 2012, despite her decision not to run.

I'm precisely matching your wavelength here, friend. I couldn't have said it better if I tried. That is exactly the situation we're in, and the result of her stepping aside.

I honestly cannot believe that this isn't weighing on her conscience day and night. It would literally kill me, if I were in her shoes.

Many of us see her as the best hope this country had of reversing our dire fortunes next year. Most of those who supported her still see it that way, despite her decision to step aside.

There is such a thing as the recognition of duty to country. I believe with all my heart that Palin has this in spades, and that she had firmly set her feet on the path to a run at the White House, but that something unforeseen, and too monumental to overcome, got in her way.

What that really is, we'll probably never know, but whatever it is, some still think that it's her duty to go over, under, around, or through it, to do what's right for her country.

People are going to talk about this for a long time to come. Get used to it.

I don't think a suggestion by GHWB would move her, but millions of heartfelt postcards, letters, and a some TV ads just may. She said herself that it would take "an earthquake" to get her to reconsider. If the race keeps going as it is, she'll probably get that earthquake.

Heck, I can only imagine what she's thinking, watching this circus. I wonder how many nights she's gone to bed thinking, "Am I truly the only one who can do this?"

Unfortunately, I’ve thought from the moment I saw Drudge’s simple banner headline: “PALIN - NO!”.

That the answer to your question was that yes, she very might be the only one here and now.

I’m doing my best to find someone who can take her place. I’d have to lean toward Cain right now.

But the answer might just be yes. She was the one. Now was her time. And yes she should be back in this.

Like any number of natural leaders, Palin is unique and irreplaceable. We won't find another one like her. I do hope that we stand firm enough to compel her, or one like her, to step forward before next November.

Like you, Cain is who I'm leaning toward right now.

Agree 100% with your post #29. And I will add this: I attribute her refusal to run to a lack of courage in the face of leftist death threats (and maybe some from the GOP, we don’t know). I’m not sure she is the right person for president after displaying that kind of cowardice.
