Posted on 11/25/2011 11:24:58 AM PST by presidio9
The most sought-after endorsement of this political cycle will be from a woman who holds no political office and is not currently seeking one. That is why each of the Republican candidates have done the equivalent of kissing Sarah Palin's ring.
RealClearPolitics believes that former House Speaker Newt Gingrich has the inside track for getting the Palin endorsement. Of course, reports about what Palin will or will not do is largely conjecture, even if it is sourced from people said to be within the Palin inner circle. Only Palin will know who she intends to endorse and when. Any definitive statement that does not cite her personally as a source should be taken with a grain of salt.
The criteria Palin will use to determine who to endorse will be who will be best for the country, in her judgment, and only secondarily who will be best for her own political fortunes. Palin has some definite ideas about how the United States should be governed, particularly in the suppression of honest graft in the congress and crony capitalism. Whomever is best suited to advance her agenda will get her endorsement.
Not one of the current candidates are perfectly suited for Palin's likely criteria. Romney is too squishy. Perry has been accused of practicing crony capitalism as governor of Texas. Herman Cain, while likely appealing to Palin, has stumbled since the sexual harassment allegations. Gingrich himself has been in politics for decades and

Better not be Romney.
Hopefully nobody. It would destroy her reputation to endorse one of these guys right now.
The Republican nominee, warts and all.
Which ever profits her the most...
Ditto. Of course the mainstream media will try to press an early endorsement out of her, hoping it will be Romney. But they’re wasting their time. It’s not going to be Romney.
There is no upside to Sarah for an early commitment of support.
She should keep her powder dry and support whomever emerges from the primary battles as the republican candidate.
You newties are in full panic mode, Palin is not going to support a life time politician, that think cronyism is the way to run government and that government is the answer. It just takes another study and a few million/billion more to solve the problem and a rino.
The men are conservative on some things.... moderate on others..
YES;...... ALL OF THEM..
No matter who she endorses she will be flamed on FR.
I am sure Palin is going to hitch her wagon on a sinking ship.
In the end, SP will say vote for the Republican nominee, even if it’s Willard.
Who cares? Her franchise lost all its value when she spent the summer toying with the conservatives, only to pull the rug out.
Easy. She will endorse the candidate nominated at the Republican National Convention. Who will most likely be Romney, but whoever it is, that’s who she’ll endorse.
She won’t decide until after the nomination.
Only if he gets the nomination. I think if she endorses anyone it will be Newt. In fact, the day after she dropped out I thought she did endorse him, or hinted at it.
“Such people claim they know conservatism, but they deny it by the way they live. They are detestable and disobedient, worthless for doing anything good.”—To reword a bible quote.
Such are the people that are willing to deny Sarah. They’re more apt to accept Romney or let Obama have another term. They’re ‘REAL conservatives’. With conservatives like you, who needs enemies!
