My Christmas list this year: (3) New iPad with two, count em, two cameras; (2) field-level tickets to the Pro Bowl, natch; (1) Palin/DeMint primary showdown.

But the ground may be shifting in DeMint-world, and several of his closest advisers and political confidantes are now telling CNN that he is at least open to a presidential bid if a suitably conservative candidate fails to emerge from the early and wide-open GOP field
He hasnt completely shut the door on running, and if there is a massive void in the group of candidates, who knows what could happen?, said the adviser, who was quick to caution that there is only a five percent chance the senator will run.

You got that right, I really hope that he will reconsider his recent decision to not enter the presidential race.
Oh, I would so be all over this. I'd love to see DeMint run...and win.
Don’t even worry about it. The conservative Palin fans all like Michele. The cultists, OTOH, would denigrate George Washington if they thought it would help Palin.
