A worthwhile read.
She's scared and nobody will pay her enough.
A brokered convention means a reset, and Sarah could step right in.
” She’s dead Gibbs”
Because people wanted somebody who was smarter, more articulate, better prepared, had less baggage and was better able to hold up under the pressure of the media and the Chicago Way. Well, that’s what they said, anyway. Based on what I’ve seen out of this field, I’m not sure they actually meant it. Or they have their own private definitions of those qualities to none of which the rest of us happen to be privy.
“Why isnt Sarah running?”
Harder to hit a moving target.
She knows it. You all should too.
Maybe she doesn’t want to.
Dontcha’know, she’s “irrelvant.” Right,you betcha’ /sarc. Just wait, patience is a virtue. Yes indeed,the door IS open!
Because she's dancing.
I know that it is hard for people to imagine that, but she has her own life and family, is young yet and people do not realize the rigors of running for office or executing that office once elected.
Look for her to run 2 cycles down the road.
She already said why. She isn’t running because she didn’t want to.
I’m not precisely sure myself, but I am really starting to wonder if she hasn’t been planning on running all along.
Or, at least, she has to be wondering if there is a way for her to get back in now. Possibly through a brokered convention.
Mitt is really not taking off. He says the right things, but nobody really believes he means them because his flip-flops are too numerous to give him any credibility.
Newt can work a crowd and he’s great in debates, but he has all those past character issues, Dede Scozzafava, global warming pics with SanFanNan — and there is the nagging suspicion that we haven’t seen all the nasty stuff on him.
Rick is awesome and I totally love the man, but I just don’t know if he has the sand or the moxie to take the hardscrabble fight to the Bamster.
As for Paul, he should be running as the candidate of the Monster Raving Loony Party.
But what if Sarah were to show up at the convention and say “OK, I wasn’t going to do this, but since you people can’t get your collective heads out of your ass, I’m willing to step in.”
Half the delegates would have screaming orgasms on the spot and the other half would be so divided behind their particular candidates they wouldn’t be able to form a credible front against her.
I’ve always known that woman is smart. I was bitterly and intensely disappointed and more than a little confused when she said she wasn’t going to run. I don’t believe she’s about money.
Could it be that she’s right where she planned to be at this stage of the game?
One thing for sure, her CPAC speech does prove one thing — her star power is undiminished and if anyone could throw a million volt charge into the Conservative base, it’s Sarah.
I think she would have liked to run but I would imagine the special needs child she has has to be a very time consuming thing. And she just made a calculation it just wasn’t possible and keep her ultimate priority. As for the tired “Sarah is just in it for the money” crowd. You’ve all really have become a tired act. An odd comment for people who are allededly in favor of a free market economy.
The answer to that question is obvious. Sarah Palin’s name and image was assassinated by the Drive By Liberal Media. If you mention Sarah Palin, many people will think of Tina Fey. It’s happened before to people like Dan Quayle and Katherine Harris. Meanwhile, liberals like Joe Biden say things that boggle the mind and the Washington Press Corps covers it up.
Because there will never be an American President elected whose “fans” (supporters) refer to said person by their first name.
Same reason Rush isn't running?
