Skip to comments.One on One with Ted Cruz in Miami: Sarah is Amazing. Why He Should Run.

Sarah said God bless you. She wrote it, I pointed to the picture, he leaned over, looked straight into my eyes and said: She is a.m.a.z.i.n.g. That was the brief exchange not caught on camera. It was the moment. His words were deliberate, genuine and unequivocal. He admires Sarah. The noise in the room, the glare of the lights, the chatter and commotion disappeared just for that moment. All of it. Gone. Frozen in time. It was awesome. He carefully chose where to sign his name, too, and did not ruin the little treasure which had traveled from Texas to Alaska, from Wasilla to Miami. What more can one ask?
Now on to politics. Why its a no-brainer for Ted Cruz to run for president.
Ted Cruz should run for President for several reasons. He generates excitement and hope. He can energize crowds and engage voters in this effort. Its not just about electing him. Decency oozes out of him. He gets a bit flustered being off-stage (that could just be a logistical problem by organizers) but people are drawn to him. Sarah is very comfortable off stage and in a crowd. She takes her time but Ted also is comfortable enough and has star power just like she does. Hes professorial but not stuffy. He explains things in a way that people understand without feeling lectured to. I could listen to him for hours. Other adjectives come to mind: he is civil, respectful and statesmanlike. He elevates the discourse and connects with Republican voters as well as the base. He merges them. His message is not a trap even though there is some pandering. I have a solid impression people like him. His Reagan-inspired oratory is uplifting and optimistic. Did I mention he connects with Establishment voters? That is the key here. He is connecting with voters who left the party because the party left them. In our neck of the woods, it means winning over Rubio Republicans.
Ted Cruz would raise his profile and get more recognition by running for president, increasing the value of his endorsements. His support of Sarah Palin for President would only help her because of that endorsement value. His style is anti-establishment but not to the point of turning off voters or making them feel there is too much change. Too much change makes establishment voters nervous. He is definitely not GOPe but a Palin/Cruz ticket would be a good merger without compromising the grassroots cause. Its a new day in America, and people are ready for a woman president, but those old male fogies and jealous Republican wives still have an issue with it and its too much of a risk.
This ticket would be exciting, attractive and filled with vision and promise. Ted is not threatened by strong women like GOPe cry babies (it is true!) He would bring out the best in her presidential run because he understands what shes about yet would still be mindful of the (Rino) faction that needs to be dealt with, a faction he has dealt with for the last two years in D.C. The two have obvious respect for one another. He may not have executive experience like she does, but no matter what Ted does we will all be better served by it. Sarah is my first and has been my only choice for the presidency since 2012. It would be a shame to dismiss Ted Cruz as a presidential nominee who would help her revive the party of Ronald Reagan which so many have always been in support of.
There is hope with a team like Sarah and Ted. It is almost too exciting to think about. We can be secure again under the leadership of these two courageous and centered individuals. They will help restore our greatness and bring the power of the people back to the city on a hill to make it shine even brighter than before.

Cruz for VICTORY!
I hope and pray he runs! GO TED CRUZ, GO!!
We need this kind of Unity.
United We Will Stand.
United We Will Win!
If it’s Palin/Cruz, I hate to say it but a lot of women are uncomfortable with Palin’s individuality and attractiveness. Cruz/Palin would be an easier sell.
One of the many cop outs that so many on the right accept as "true" from the anti-Palin muck rakers. There aren't enough ugly leftist women to make that true.
There are about a dozen of those kinds of thoughts toward the Governor that too many on the right casually accept, and there are those here on the right who actively work with the totalitarian leftist muckrakers to bring her down.
She deserves better.
Ted Cruz, Sarah Palin - The kind of folks you want for neighbors.
Good, decent people.
Just look at Hilary Clinton, she is what? 66?
She is old enough to be my Grandmother.
And My Real Grandmother ISN'T old enough to be her Mom. They are almost in the same Generation.
Plus Ted isn't that cute.
Sure there are. How else could hillary be so popular? I'd wager that a majority of US women don't want a female leader who is exceptional. Look at the women who've been elected to the US Senate. Not one of them could be described as a successful, free-thinking inspirational attractive woman. But with Palin in the VP spot and having her own voice as opposed to how she was shackled by McCain it'll be easy to sell her as President-in-training if called on.
I'm not opposed to Palin. I think Cruz/Palin is the surer sell.
Thanks for this image. Does not get any better!
Recent Gallup polling shows there is no downside to running a conservative candidate. The country remains strong with conservative values. Only the GOPe stands in the way.
I believe Palin has mellowed somewhat, she’s pretty but let’s face it - there are plenty of women around who are prettier.
She has been a politician and a mom, doing well at both.
She’s doing well for herself. I think she would win.
Palin / Cruz 2016.
Flip the ticket and I'd support it. I think Cruz if far better presidential material than Palin is.
Hillary isn't all that popular. Remember, she lost to the first fresh face the dems put up, and it's going to happen again. Her "popularity" is because of the leftist media, not because of ugly women.
Sarah running would take away the “you’re sexist” if you don’t vote for Hillary excuse. Not that they wouldn’t find another. I love Ted Cruz, but I am reminded daily what happens when you elect a first term senator with no executive experience to the highest office of the land. Not really a comparison, but still......Sarah has the executive experience and I could see her ‘cleaning house’ the way it needs to be done. Unfortunately, the entire establishment is afraid of her and what she might do and will do anything and everything to stop her including threatening her and her family which I believe has already happened..
