True, but only because Our Sarah doesn't know what "deregulation" means.

She isn't the worst the GOP could do in 2016. I am hearing rumors both Sanatorium and Perry want to run again! YIKES!

I think it's time for a reality check here.
First off, regardless of who will be a future president, or even the current president, one thing is being overlooked.
For the most part, the president is a figurehead.
When a candidate stands up in front of the camera and states he, or she is going to do this and that on their first day, once elected, that is rubbish.
Anything a potential president promises is only wishful thinking, there are just too many variables.
They are powerless to change anything.
It is all up to the congress.
Sure, the president can approve, or veto certain legislation,(and the presidential veto can be over turned by a vote in congress) but other than having the power to issue an executive order, the president is powerless.
Even in the case of executive order, the congress can overturn that.
It is not the presidential elections that should command your attention, but rather, those you elect to congress.
Once in congress, members head up all kinds of important positions that deal directly with the citizenry.
Congress, and only congress can vote to raise or lower your taxes.
The president can not do that, even though as a candidate it was stated he, or she could, and would.
So regardless of who runs for president in the next election, doesn't much matter.
It is those running to represent you in congress that hold the key too your future, and the future direction of this country.
Mickey Mouse, Yogi Bear, Obama, Clinton, or whomever, doesn't matter.
Members of congress are the real meat and potatoes of political clout in this country, and you would do well to remember that the next time you are in the voting booth.
Bob.

Not quick enough it would appear as it hung on long enough for its vestiges to split votes within the party.

Yep;if Hilary runs and wins the that will mean the Obama left loses the committee control they tookoverini 2008 from centralist Clinton faction.It seems funny that few acutally realised the fight that tookj place when centailist loss control of the right to witre the paltform. Clinto certainyl has forgotten even with the support this year. Alot fo har feeling s still which came out with Obama;s first term.Things arent always what they seem.

She is an intellectually challenged attention-*****. Her "rough and tumble Alaskan woods-woman" image is complete farce. She's also a pretty terrible shot.

She blue collar, consistent on her views.

Sarah Palin is the new Ronald Reagan: charming and affable and unwilling to back down if she's right.
I really really really hope she gets the nom in 2016 so Hillary or Cuomo, whoever is picked, can dust the floor with her. She is also very VERY affluent. Her rustic Alaska woods-woman image is a complete farce. Even this dirty liberal (me) is a better shot than her.

I'd say Hillary's the next President if she chooses to run which i doubt.
For those thinking Palin to be a viable contender? you've already lost..
