Posted on 11/08/2011 12:17:50 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
Things are so bad for the GOP and/or Republicans are so turned off by the idea that Mitt Romney is their only viable option rumors have once again surfaced that Sarah Palin could get back in the race.
NYT numbers expert Nate Silver thinks there's a slim chance she could pull it off.
One major constraint is that the filing deadline has already passed in New Hampshire, South Carolina and Florida. So a candidate who entered now could not get her name on the ballot in those states, although some states, like New Hampshire, allow for write-in votes.
However, the candidate could participate in caucuses, including the Jan. 3 caucus in Iowa and the February caucuses in Maine, Nevada, Colorado and Minnesota, which do not have rigid filing deadlines.
She would also potentially be able to participate in the primaries in Arizona and Michigan on Feb. 28, which are the next primaries following a four-week gap after Florida....

There are quite a few who'd like to see her pull it off.
Oh, and get into the race, as well........
Well Palin was willing to be McCain’s VP.
Based on Cain, why would she want to?
That book told her what would be coming.
I’ve said from the beginning that she was my candidate until the time that she decided not to run. Why would my opinion change if she runs?
She could not. It would have required her being in the race to begin with.
I may end up writing her name in... should she run... I will check the box by her name.
We have a very viable front runner in Herman Cain. I just sent him another $100 today. Don’t the enemy with false charges take that away from the Country. Help Herman Cain by sending him your patriotic best check at:
Herman Cain, Inc.
Friends of Herman Cain, Inc.
P.O. Box 2158
Stockbridge, Georgia 30281
And God bless America!
Sarah can ber in charge of the Energy Dept.!
If she makes it to the ballot, I’ll vote for her.
If RINOmney makes it to the ballot, guess I’ll just have to leave the president portion unmarked.
Whether she does or doesn’t, I won’t be voting for her or anyone else other than Herman Cain.
If America destroys this decent man, then America destroys itself as far as I am concerned.
I HAVE HAD ENOUGH.
I was a Palin supporter but when she declined to run I switched my allegiance to Herman Cain and there it remains. Although I still admire her, by sitting on the sidelines Sarah Palin has diminished in importance for most conservatives. I'm not sure why Sarah Palin decided not to run. It could have been the fact that she was accused of having sex with some athlete while in college, which, while hardly making her ineligible to run for the Republican nomination, would be an embarrassing revelation for a Christian mother of five and enough to persuade her not to run. Or, it could be that she simply didn't want to deal with the kind of Chicago gutter politics the Obama people would have used on her - and her family.
One look at the garbage being dumped on Herman Cain (accusations of misbehavior with no witnesses. Accusations he can only deny but can probably never disprove) is proof that the GOP presidential nominee will be covered head to toe in manure from the Obama campaign. Even the Democrat's favorite Republican, Mitt Romney, will get 'the Chicago treatment'. What else can Obama do? He has no record of achievement in office and bragging about killing Osama bin Laden won't cut it for most people. Although, in politics, anything can happen, I don't believe that Sarah Palin will be running for president in 2012.
Palin/Cain in 2012
What exactly do you mean by that?
It’s amazing to me that she has remained quiet throughout all of this.
Oh, and get into the race, as well........"
Count me in the former group!
So... You're happy with the incumbent, I take it?
