You're a partisan puppet. LOL Sarah, on the other hand, is loyal to her country, not any political party; she'll take on anyone whom she feels is wrong, regardless of political affiliation--as it should be. She believes she's of superior intellect? LOL Put the proof right here. The only hate I saw in this campaign--aside from people like you--is Obama's video dishonoring McCain while he was a POW. That was disgraceful and that it wasn't denounced by his followers shows the gutter mentality to which our nation is succumbing. We're right where we should be and our time has come. Congratulations.

She's about as insubstantial as former Vice President Dan Quayle. And just see how bright his political future became!

I think the jokes will end very soon, if they haven't already. It was childish on the media's part how they were prepping her to be the next Dan Quale.
She'll be governor of Alaska, then possibly go on to run for a senate position there, where she could end up in Washington. I'm not so sure about her trying to run for one of the top two tickets again.

Remember that thread some time ago that was encouraging people to vote for Obama because his win would be the only way Palin would pose for Playboy? I actually thought about that when I got up this morning. Is that next? I wouldn't mind seeing that. Let's face it--she's a pretty physically attractive lady!

After 4 years of Carter Jr. II......There will be another 20+ year of reign from republicans again as they are reminded of the good ole $10/gallon gas days. So I see a real conservative winning in 2012 may be her may not.

I didn't care for her from the get go her politics are not mine. Just because she was a woman didn't mean I would vote for her.

I really don't know what her future will be. Because of her slant on issues that are important to me I doubt I could ever support her in any election.

Agreed. She acted like a vindictive b**** during most of her campaign, despite being so far out of her league. I believe she may have p***** off a lot of people, who in turn, will not accept her in any sort of national role in politics.

On the other hand, if they still love her up there in Alaska (not sure what her approval ratings are looking like these days...anybody know?), maybe she'll be elected into the US Senate, in which case, we'll all have to hear more from her in the future.

I can see her running for Congress (either Senate or House seat) in Alaska. A 2012 presidential bid just isn't in the cards IMO. But 2016? Maybe.

I don't think she'll be thrown under the bus. She has strong conservative ideals. They can't fault her for that. She's basically what they need but she needs more experience in Washington dealing with issues realative to the lower 48.

I dont think she will be the future of the Rep party but I do think she is now on the map and has doors open for her .

Only those with blinding hate for her dont want to see it .
