The Sarah Palin phenomenon may have motivated the white Tea Party women, who could significantly impact future elections, since their support of any potential Republican candidate has more room to grow than black women's support of an Obama re-election campaign."
A very interesting view of a dynamic that I must admit, I hadn't really looked at.
I don't doubt that Sarah Palin inspired a lot of center-right white women to stand up and get involved in forging the future direction of their country. She's undoubtedly a great inspiration to many women.
I can see the vast majority of conservative women not just looking at Sarah and seeing in her the sort of right-thinking conservative leadership this country truly needs, but also someone who represents them on a much more immediate, and personal level.
The author is definitely on to something big with this.
