The Palin Presence in Iowa
Fmr. Gov. Palin has the campaign trail experience to endear her to conservatives and she could be a significant force to get Republicans and Independents out of their chairs and into the voting booth. Now, if she just doesn't blow it by becoming a national spokesperson for the Party. That's what the candidates are for.
The Republicans seem to have rallied behind the most attractive men even while Bachwoman gets the most votes in Iowa. I think Michele strikes fear into the Republican establishment who want to attract more Centrist voters. And, BTW when did the job of Texas Governor become a sufficient qualification for Presidential candidates? The governor is not supposed to run the state, as opposed to New York, but to keep the Texas legislature on track with their part-time jobs and two-year budgets.
Sarah Palin will be the Republicans' symbol of common sense, not a font of knowledge, but nice to look at and to have a conversation about where and how much money the big donors will give her for the Party. I don't think the media get it.
