This is going to end with either another scandal involving "Gods Only Party" being revealed soon, or in SP acting like she is the annointed one and not shutting up for the next three years and running in 2012.

Who in the world has respect for anyone that quits serving the public in an elected role without giving a good reason. I don't see how this won't hurt the GOP at least in the short term.

Can you and Anderson Cooper list the accusations that have been made against her so far that have been found to be true? Not a damned one that I know of but then Anderson Cooper is a real commentator, ain't he?

BTW would it be too much for you to provide a link to prove that you didn't misunderstand?

it's good to see someone from the grand ol party allow themselves to be "handled" ala obama by the clinton machine. could be formidable by the primaries if she continues to "play along" with the handlers.

Anderson Cooper? People with brains do not listen to Anderson Cooper. Provide the proof. Put up or shut up.

She certainly energized the party for a brief period of time, and did a decent job in her debate against Biden, especially considering her lack of prior involvement in many federal issues.


Though she certainly has some flaws, she still may be a substantial player in 2012, depending upon the alternative candidates and what issues have folks concerned at that time.
Ya know, by now even with the initial fire, her true colors and intelligence of issues of any kind have blossomed...She says whatever she thinks wants to be heard, whatever pleases the majority at the time, no matter the platform or party, then the next day or week, she has to remember what she said...I think we had a frost and the blossom faded...now time for spring in the GOP. You betcha as we wave at Russia from igloo's with the plane warming up to go hunting

I would've thought she was too stupid to commit a crime (a white-collar crime, that is).
Not to be rude, but I can't really think of a nicer way to say it.
