If the point is to put the widest variety of ideas on the table and hash out which are the best ones, I’m all for it. The more voices, the better - this country needs a good brainstorming session and it’s not going to come from the scions of Columbia, Harvard and Yale (who got us into this mess, just like they got us into the Great Depression).
disclaimer: not a Palin supporter and see no need for her to be in the race as a candidate
The strongest evidence in my mind that Palin is running is that she was the VP candidate last time around, and it would be normal for her to run.
The strongest evidence that she is not running is that O’Reilly said the other night they couldn’t find a phone number where they can contact her organization. That just doesn’t sound like someone running for office.
