Skip to comments.Sarah Palin is the Most Powerful Female Politician in the World

If one doubted Sarah Palin wields great power by virtue of her charisma and persona, that notion was laid to rest during her speech at the CPAC convention when she had the overflow audience on their feet numerous times.
None of the presidential candidates, least of all front-runner Mitt Romney, got anywhere near that warm of reception. Newt Gingrich, who delivered a classic speech filled with ideas, came closest. But Gingrich has faltered somewhat in his presidential run. Romney still won the CPAC straw poll, likely because he filled the venue with enough of his supporters to pull off a plurality win.
Speaking of Romney, according to Politico, Palin had a warning. Palin and hence conservatives in general are not convinced of his authentic right wing credentials. The Romney campaign is doubtless taking note. It has to try harder to close the deal, to prove the Romney of Massachusetts is in the past and Romney the candidate has grown and evolved rightward. If he cannot do this, he will not be president.
Palin has proven herself the most powerful female politician in the world. Angela Merkel runs a country and has a little influence in Europe. Hillary Clinton's name used to be on the lips of people in the same sentence as "president of the United States." But no one else can speak and shake the corridors of power to the foundation as can Palin
From inveighing against "death panels" in Obamacare to crony capitalism in Washington, Palin has shaped the political agenda is more profound ways that one would imagine a private citizen who has the bottom half of a failed presidential campaign who was hounded out of office could achieve.
And, like Ronald Reagan before her, Palin has the power to drive a certain type of person insane....

Sarah knows that ‘we the people’ are government. AND our political hot tub class are robbing US blind.
DRILL - Baby - DRILL!!!!!!
She was and still is dissed by the RNC.
My fervent hope is that she finishes them off good.
Comments? I wish she were running. So, so wish she were running.
I wish she’d start using that power.
I know, she will...just hope it doesn’t come down to her out campaigning for Romney.
Want to be on the New Sarah Palin’s Ping List.
Are you sure you want to take on a new SP Ping List with your 100 other things you do? :)
Angela Merkel is certainly more powerful and so are a host of other politicians including the PM of Australia.
Would you be so kind as to put me on your Sarah ping list?
Much appreciated, and happy Freeping.
Look at it this way: The United States is the most powerful country in the world, the only remaining true superpower. For the last three years, there has only been one person who consistently faced up to and fought the creeping fascism that is the Obama administration. Ergo, she is the most influential woman in the world. It’s not the position she holds, it’s what she is doing.
I hope there could still be a surprise but I am resigned to the fact she won’t run this time. I really think she saw the evil lay of the Obama-land in 2012 and realized NO ONE would beat a rock star president with the entire MSM behind him. Having said that I was disappointed she didn’t run a people’s campaign anyways, standing on principle...enabling her to come back with heightened credibility in 2016, saying “I told you so”. A la ‘76/’80.
Put down the pipe...
My name is Fred, not Mark Whittington.
LOL I’ve had this new list since she decided not to run.
It’s huge now. I get “proxy time out” when I post it.
