Skip to comments.Flashback II: Donna Brazile: Yes, I said Sarah Palin for President

Palin can wait until the last possible moment to officially file her intent to run. Others who have already filed or are looking to file need to start developing traction-generating strategies now. However, Palin has both name recognition and the ability to quickly raise the funds needed to pull together a massive organization in the key early states. This media-savvy political professional can decide when it is the right time for her to file.
Another reason Palin may get the GOP nod: She can get away with stunts that would sink any other politician. Can you imagine former Gov. Mitt Romney crashing a non-political event for our veterans (Rolling Thunder) for obvious political gain?
When Palin emerged from her self-imposed media blackout, the press folks behaved as if they were starved for her. No other Republican contender can generate her kind of excitement, positive or negative.
The Republican Party has taken a significant shift to the political right. I can remember the days when the party was an inclusive organization. But, Republican legends like former Vice President Nelson Rockefeller, Sen. Jacob Javits of New York and Clifford Case of New Jersey are gone with history.
Palin certainly doesn't fill that void, but she may be served by it. Of all the people set to cash in if the tea party retains its strength, Palin may be first among them.
Palin is the candidate with the most crossover appeal between groups. She can talk to the tea partiers, the radicals -- even the nearly extinct moderates.
When scripted, she can be rather convincing, especially compared to other candidates. The others are too drab -- in policy, in convictions, in media smarts. They just can't compete with her star power. From here, 2012 looks like a slam-dunk for Sarah Palin.

“The Republican Party has taken a significant shift to the political right. I can remember the days when the party was an inclusive organization.”
Ahhhh...the good old days, when the Grand Old Potty would go along with everything you socialists wanted.
Snotty as she is, she has political savvy. I mean Donna baby. Wouldn’t mind having her on our side.
*giggle* ... good one. :)
What she’s saying isn’t news — we’ve kicked it around ad nauseum right here on FR.
But the fact that *Donna Brazile* is saying it — now THAT’S interesting!
Oh, please. You mean it finally BECAME inclusive; they were forced against their will to let conservatives in.
I remember when the Democrat party was an inclusive organization....oh, wait, no I don't.
Well, you never know. Toe Boy Morris crossed over from the dark side. Sorta.
It's her guilty secret -- she's a closet FReeper!
“Toe Boy Morris crossed over from the dark side. Sorta.”
toe Boy “was allowed” to continue to propagandize for the RinoCracy despite having embarrassed them and compromising his previous position of influence.
Donna Brazile offers basically the same arguments many Sarah Palin supporters have been making for some time. That a Democrat operative of her stature and experience is making these arguments is telling. The left knows full well that Sarah Palin would be a formidable opponent to Obama, even if the polls seem to indicate that everyone hates Sarah Palin and no one will vote for her so, according to the memo, anyone who supports her is crazy. I guess I never got that memo and Donna Brazile makes it pretty clear that she doesn’t buy it, either. Definitely interesting.
Especially Palin is the candidate with the most crossover appeal between groups. She can talk to the tea partiers, the radicals -- even the nearly extinct moderates. Out of the mouths of babes -- this time, a liberal like Brazile ...
"Palin Democrats," anyone? When my formerly liberal sis-in-law went to see Palin in Nevada a few years ago and joined a crowd that was much larger than what the MSM reported, she said there were a lot of young people there, which surprised her quite a lot, but she was even more surprised at the number of liberals there.
Man, I hope Palin runs.
“Palin is the candidate with the most crossover appeal between groups”
Paging Rove, Krauthammer, Coulter, and all Republicans in Congress...
Donna is a little smarter then I gve her credit for, and is absolutely correct on this.
She is only saying what the rest of the democrats and RINO’s know and are shaking in their boots hoping Palin won’t run.
They also know that Palin is the only one that can beat Zero at the polls.
Donna need not fret about "the tea party." It is not a single entity. It is like a pool of quicksilver. Slap it, and all you have done is bring forth a lot of smaller, equally committed pools to contend with.
I attend occasional Tea Party events, but I don't need them in the least. I am autonomous, ready, willing and able.
