Should Sarah Palin Run for President?

Should Sarah Palin run for president? Personally, I think she shouldn't. Now you may say that if she wants to run for president she should. But Sarah Palin is like several of the women that she endorsed, including Sharon Angle and Christine O'donnell. She may be a great person, and she's supported by the Tea Party movement, but that doesn't necessarily mean that she'll win. Sarah is a polarizing figure. You either love her or you hate her. I'm probably one of the few that doesn't really like her but can tolerate her.

If Sarah Palin were to run and win the GOP nomination, would I vote for her?

You betcha!

But that is not the point, just because I would vote for her, there would be a ton of people that wouldn't vote. Could she win against Barack Obama? That really depends. She thinks she can, and if the economy is really bad and she does motivate the "female vote," then she of course does have a good chance of winning. However, I really think there are some seriously better options for president than Sarah Palin in 2012. Of course from the title of this blog, you probably know who I'm talking about anyway.

What are your thoughts? I'd be interested in knowing.

I REALLY like Sarah Palin. She has brought about real change as the strongest Tea Party spokesperson. I hope she doesn't run, though. Her having (and I acknowledge it was for good reason) stepped down before completing her first term as Governor in Alaska will prove to be an insurmountable barrier to winning the presidency. When McCain chose her as running mate, I said "YAY--she's kind of Huckabee lite" and voted for the GOP ticket instead of writing in the candidate I knew would be the best choice for President. I hope she backs Huckabee and continues to use her considerable talent in service to our country.
