Re: “So she had an obligation to run in 2012?”

You’re damn right, she did.

And not “to satisfy” me.

If she was animated by Conservative principles, the idea of NOT running for president would never have entered her mind.

And you care - and she cares - about abuse?

Abuse is personal.

Conservatism is a principle.

If you are man or woman of principle, you don’t care about abuse.

Instead, you improve your political skills every day.

And you draw your energy and your strength from the principles that you passionately believe in.

Bottom line....

Your candidate didn’t care enough about her political principles to even run for the GOP nomination.

Say what you will: I don’t play rigged games, and I don’t believe Gov. Palin does either.

She still gets my vote.

My thoughts on Palin declining to run is that she did so because she thought that she would lose or her running would have had a negative impact on the conservative movement. Her reluctance to openly and officially endorse Newt was probably because she knew that she is an unpopular figure and that an endorsement of hers would have had a negative effect on Newt’s campaign. With the same type of thinking then, she probably decided not to run.

It’s not because of cowardice, although there have been political figures in modern history who suffered much worse abuse than Palin did for their causes.

Without having a personal conversation with Mrs. Palin, and directly posing the question, we can never know.
