I dont' know if either of those are true, but with respects to being elected in AK, so what? Are you so government focused that elected office is the only career path? She has a job no one else can have. It's a very high paying gig. It provides a lot of free travel, and includes tremendous influence and an uncanny ability to irritate our enemies.
It's the job of Sarah Palin, which was created by her enemies and now is a key role in our political climate, and there's only one person who can fill it. Why the hell would she want another job, and if she did take another job, who the hell would fill her current job?
Yoy got it right. I wish I could say it like you do. Right now she belongs where she is. She rattles their cages real good.
If I read correctly the trajectory of events leading up to the Iowa caucuses. and from the tone of her last speech there, she had found that she would be blocked if she made a move for the nomination. Maybe she hoped to gain currency by supporting McCain, but if so she soon found that there was nothing there there.
No one else seems to be helping but Sarah, Mark and the base.
GOPe nowhere to be seen.
