Will Sarah Palin run against Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election? No, its safe to say that she likely wont. Though, as she said herself when asked, never say never. She followed the statement up by adding, I dont have a team of people, you know, getting out there doing these poll-tested whatever they do to let you know if you should run or not. I dont have any of that kind of organization going, according to The Examiner. While her candidacy would certainly be welcomed by some within the GOP, especially further to the right including the Tea Party that doesnt supersede the odds.
That hasnt stopped back and forth discussion on whether or not she should run, on whether or not the idea has merit. When it comes down to it, Palins resurgence has to do with a number of things. Shes being suggested as a solution to the GOPs failure to compete with Democratic candidates, and failure to reach potential voters by alienating possible swing votes with overemphasis on certain issues, and underemphasis on others. Shes female and has played a prominent role in past presidential elections, running as Vice President to John McCain, so when Republicans scramble for a womans voice in their party that could compete with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, her name is near the surface.
Of course, that doesnt make her the only woman in the Republican party being considered for a roll in 2016. Kelly Ayottes name has been batted around quite a bit for the Vice Presidency, though on whos ticket is still uncertain. Ayotte could turn the war on women narrative into a punch line, said Steve Schmidt, manager of John McCains 2008 bid....

Unmarried pro-abortion pro-amnesty Condi Rice is the answer.
I politely disagree.
Long answer: Affirmative.
What is the question?
If she runs, I really doubt that “poll tested” will be a factor
People and money will come out of the woodwork.
Palin will win in a landslide because all liberals’ heads will explode and the headless zombies will simply cease to exist.
In a landslide.
No RINO’s, thank you.
Only if the GOP wants to beat Walter Mondales record.
Look at my tagline. Do you see the words “Bush” or “Christie” there?
“Palin will win in a landslide because all liberals heads will explode and the headless zombies will simply cease to exist.”
As much as I love that idea, I fear that we would see a repeat of Goldwater/Johnson.
The Marxist Stream Media would be trashing and making fun of her her 24/7.
Rice / Snowe 2016!!
Or McCain* / Romney 2016!!
* (This has the bonus that McCain will probably not make it through the entire term, thus allowing us to get two Republican Presidents in a single term!)
>>Palin will win in a landslide because all liberals heads will explode and the headless zombies will simply cease to exist.<<
After they die, liberals vote TWICE in each election.
The look on Smucky Chumer, Di-Fi, Boxer, Lindsey Gramnasty, Un Poco Loco Dicko Durbin, and so many others faces would be worth it's weight in Gold...
Carl Rove would be deeply saddened...
With lots of help from our resident PDSers.
If people could twist themselves in knots and vote Romney despite a media assault, they can damn well vote for an actual conservative like Palin despite a media assault.
Unless they aren’t conservative to begin with.
The media will trash anyone running against a Dem. Nothing new and it’s an old excuse we really ought to stop turning into self fulfilling prophecy every couple years.
REPUBLICAN WOMEN would put Hillary over the top.
I didn’t know that was the question.
