Skip to comments.Palin Hints "Unconventional" Landscape May Allow for Post-Nov. Entry
Posted on 09/22/2011 8:22:52 PM PDT by Clairity
Political logic and election law suggest that anyone hoping to make a serious run for the White House next year will need to be formally in the race by November.
Sarah Palin isn't so sure.
' The former Alaska governor appeared on Sean Hannityâs Fox News show on Tuesday, where she hinted ever so slightly that the current "unconventional" political landscape may allow for a later entry. (At the least, she has already proved that the current landscape has allowed would - be candidates to drag out their decisions much longer than one would expect.)
Here was her response to Hannity's first question about whether she was ready to jump in the race: "There is still time, Sean, and I think on both sides of the aisle youâre going to see people coming and going in this race. ... And I'm still one of those still considering the time factor."

Stop that! You’re being heartless! ;)
If Palin is a bad as you all want to believe, then you should be encouraging her to run.
Palin, but I live in Maryland, so it doesn’t really matter.
It doesn’t matter what me or any other Freeper would vote for...but who swing voters would pick.
After watching last night’s debates, I can understand why she hasn’t announced. A field full of clowns... most of whom shouldn’t even be on that stage, but don’t have the good sense to bow out.
Florida is first. Have to file by October 31st to be on the primary ballot.
Great strategy by Gov Palin — she’s leading everyone to believe it will be a November announcement. When she actually announces earlier, it will have greater impact. That’s Sun Tzu for you :-)
Palin said or suggested no such thing that Salon somehow invents here. She acknowledged the practical time constraint that is the first of the filing deadlines, said she’s still considering it, and said that it will likely be an unconventional campaign with candidates still coming and going. (Since then, Thad McCotter went.)
There may be a good reason for Sarah to delay her entry into the race. It is pure speculation upon my part, but here goes:
First, she recently said that it was going to be a very unconventional race. With that said, here’s what I suspect may be going on.
She is letting the current gaggle of candidates feed upon themselves until the survivor emerges. When that happens, she will have the opportunity to set her sights squarely on the opponent and not have to endure a shotgun effect warding off all of the other candidates.
Depending on how the wind blows, she may not even run as an establishment Republican. Who knows, but I can assure you of one thing and that is the fact that she has a huge unknown level of support and potential financial backing pent up, just waiting to be unleashed.
The importance of this election cannot be overstated. If we elect a RINO such as Romney, it’s over...there will not be another chance to save our country and heritage.
That's why they're called "moderators" instead of "conservators".
What kind of scandals?
Really,Hillary got a facelift.She’s running.
She’ll announce on election night... for maximum impact, you know...
And just how well did that work out for Wilkie....
What an embarrassment. All this hype you've given him, and he's a pathetic bumbler.
I watched for the first time last night, and he underperformed even my low expectations from reading how he did in the first two debates. If he can't handle a soft ball attempt to take down Romney, how in the heck is he going to face some of the leaders of other countries? He's going to drop like a rock, his weaknesses concerning his record and his shortcomings were there for everyone to see.
Congrats on feeding this rumor thread, I understand why you had to make such a big deal about a hint of someones idea of what Sarah Palin may or may not have said about November, after all your candidate just showed himself to be one monstrous pandering dud.
I think on both sides of the aisle youâre going to see people coming and going in this race. ...
Interesting, both sides of the aisle?
With Obama sinking like a lead weight, day by day, it is more and more likely the Dems will pressure him to drop out.
The big question is who they would have to put on the ballot. Hillary is the only one with name recognition at this time. The Dems are flush with cash (five trillion dollars of stolen taxpayer money has to leave plenty of crumbs).
These GOP debates are like so much fluff; "Dancing With the Stars" meets "Dumb and Dumber".
Romney is trying to sound Palinesque, but doesn't even seem to believe the stuff he is saying (today).
Perry is trying to channel GWB, with half the IQ, and twice the BS and swagger. But, Bless his Heart??? He's really not doin' so bad for a feller who so recently took to readin' ??? That boy just reeks of corruption.
Palin is smart to avoid this monkey-wrestling fiasco. Rove still has a couple of RINOs waiting in the wings, as each of the establishment picks goes face-first into the mud, one after another. Next it'll be Chris Christie, then Jeb Bush, then another, then another; all anti-American, globalist, corrupt to the bone, scumbags.
“Palin would not win a 3 way race, she’d get crushed and probably just siphon off enough voters to help Hussein was re-elected.”
Maybe that’s what Palin wants — four more years of Zero. As long as Obama is in office she stays relevant.
That's the way they always did it in the old days.
LOL...I was drinking coffee. Where was the spew alert?
The media will have no problem if Hillary gets in the race on October 1st, 2012. It will be reasonable and sensible and amazing. I get the feeling Palin and Clinton are playing chicken. As soon as Sarah announces Hillary will be in the next day to steal her press. Or vice versa.
At least six of the nine participants would beat Obama.
