Sarah Palin teases on CNN tonight.
"I don't discount any idea or plan that, at this point, isn't in my control. Anything's possible.
.... I would seriously consider whatever I can do to help our country."

If she endorses Santorum tomorrow the timing would be perfect, and probably tip the election to him. Then, like so many other times in her past, people will marvel at her wisdom. I don’t see her making many mistakes, and yet she gets slammed by some no matter what she does. Sarah P. deserves better from supposed fellow-travelers. Godspeed Sarah P. always. She is great because she is good.
I wonder what RINO will have *his turn* in 2016? We had Dole in 1996, Bush Jr. in 2000, McCain in 2008 and Romney this year (likely). So who will it be in 2016? Boehner?
She will be served much better in a POTUS campaign to be seen as a battle scarred veteran with a whole lotta "we should have listened to her instead of SNL" behind her.
Still, we could use her now. Of course I would like to see her endorse Gingrich...but it's likely she sees her ultimate obligation this time as the single endorsement that puts the eventual winner over the top and adds a unifying influence to the party.
Damn, this party is so split right now...historically split (Like the Goldwater split in 64)...that it's amazing Obama is even fund raising. It breaks my heart to say it but I believe even independents are embarrassed FOR us. They have to be. We may have lost the ability to be embarrassed for ourselves.
The big winners tonight appear to be Romney and Santorum.
How much worse can it possibly GET?
Palin will endorse the eventual GOP nominee on the floor of the Tampa convention...and be the final voice you hear before the nominee takes the stage.
Politics is a monstrous sport that forces you to eat a lot of sh!t to get a major party nomination.
Even Ronald Reagan had to eat a couple of stinkin' piles before he got his shot.
The 1976 primaries against Ford and the way it ended dropped several million to the floor weeping.
2016 will be too late.
She’ll be in a gulag and there will only one ‘party’.
That's not going to happen. The only way Santorum gets a Palin endorsement is on the convention floor.
She's a Western small (l) libertarian from the Goldwater School. She would be more likely to endorse Gingrich or Paul before the outcome is known.
Governor Palin, several MILLION of us out here, wish you would have thought about that, about six months ago.
So do something about it.
Stop hesitating. America needs you.
If zero wins there won’t be much chance for Sarah to run. I don’t trust what he will do to the country, or Christians and/or Conservatives, by then.
Who are they going to send to arrest her? It will be a very hazardous undertaking.
bump that thought
Palin has become nothing but a flirt and tease. I don’t take her seriously anymore.
