If Pence runs and DeMint does not, I think Palin will endorse.
My greatest fear is that Demint(who I like) will endorse Mitt with a token con as VP.
Roger that. I want an authentic conservative and don't believe that Sarah Palin is the only one. DeMint, Pence, Palin (there are a few others but unlikely to gain broad enough support) are equally acceptable to me. Again, none of these have even stated they will run, Sarah Palin included. Sarah Palin, if she would choose not to run (a scenario that I think is possible), would be the likely 'king-maker' with whomever she chose to endorse.
What is it with everyone talking up Washington insiders that have never had the buck stop with them? They are only voters in Congress - not leaders. I like Pence and DeMint and yes their conservative credentials are better than most, but Congress Critters do not make good presidents. Give me a Governor, CEO, or Colonel/General/Admiral. Give me someone who has experience with having peoples’ livelihood depend directly upon their actions.
That would be a dumb move. DeMint is a strong Conservative, Romney is a Lib.
