It would guarantee Obama a second term! Obama is doing a great job, especially considering the godawful mess he inherited from Bush and Cheney. I’d be thrilled to see Sarah run again in 2012.

And what do you mean by 'put a further wedge between MSM and the people'? I personally don't feel 'wedged' away from the MSM. Or do you simply hate the MSM because of some perceived liberal bias, therefore you come to an MSM website to spread this information? What's your point? pumphouseplus wrote: “Way to go ABC!

Witness the recent rejection by the Alaska legislature of her choice for Alaska Attorney General. Wayne Anthony Ross, a man who reportedly stated "gays are degenerates, it's okay for a husband to rape his wife, and praised the KKK." Even after these allegations, Palin stood by Ross stating he was a man of "high character and great family values". It's important to note, he also once took out a Moose with a large caliber hand gun. In confirmation hearings, Ross denied the rape allegation, but refused to deny the gay and KKK allegation. Fellow lawyers earlier in his career, had given Ross failing grades when he applied to be a judge. Even with these contentious allegations on record, Palin stood by Ross, except for the final two days of the legislative session when she could have been on hand to help to round up votes for her choice. Rather than stand up for her choice, she decided she'd rather accept an important invitation to fly to Indiana to speak about downs syndrome. Appears Palin has a problem with vetting herself.

She was almost one heartbeat away from being the most powerful person in the world." (Psssst - you could also look at President Obama for inspiration and the 'be whatever you want to be' statement). “Palin is such an inspiration

I'm shocked! You mean they DIDN'T have a question for the potential VP on the questionnaire asking if he/she had an unwed pregnant teenage daughter? And they call themselves Republicans! “The subject of Bristol Palin’s pregnancy didn’t come up in the written questionnaire filled out by Palin and short-list candidates, but the governor mentioned it during an in-person interview, Culvahouse said.”
