I think it would be a huge mistake for the GOP convention to nominate anyone other than Newt, Santorum, Romney, or Ron Paul. The primary process, flawed as it is, is the time where we put our potential nominees to the test. Only those who have gone through this process are well-known enough by the electorate to be entrusted with the nomination. Compared to the four remaining candidates, Sarah is very much unknown and untested. Speeches, friendly interviews, and facebook postings don't count. Debates and the harsh glare of the campaign do.
Sarah unknown and untested?? You seem to have forgotten the fact that she was the vice-presidential nominee in 2008, haven't you? She is the ONLY reason that McLame did as well as what he did.

(Sarah/DeMint '12-XXX= Now what? Cain?XX Guess not. I GIVE UP)
I recall the 2008 election just fine, thanks.
Sarah entered the process late in the game and did only so-so as a candidate.
(McCain was way worse but that doesn’t matter now.)
Since 2008 Sarah has given a few speeches, made some facebook posts, had her tv show, and done a few mostly friendly interviews. She has not debated the others, run a campaign, appeared as a candidate all over the place, faced hostile interviewers, etc., etc.
She is not nearly as vetted as Romney, Santorum, or Gingrich. They are the ones who have been in the arena, not Sarah.
