    Palin would be a breath of fresh air over politicians who know how to fool people, haha.

    She should run. It would be highly amusing.

    In a general election? Reluctantly, yes-unless the Democrats pick a candidate that repudiates the whole notion of a "living constitution," I cannot vote for their Presidential and Senate candidates, as that would essentially mean voting to allow arbitrary, unlimited, and effectively unaccountable government. And before someone objects that this makes me a "single-issue" voter, this criteria has a huge effect on all possible issues, both singularly and in conjunction with each other-if an elected official with the power to appoint and approve judicial positions does not (in my judgment) support the Constitution, I don't care what their position on any particular issue is.

    The Republican party would do well to go back to being a party of intellectuals. Palin is not going to be the right kind of change for them. She's just more of the same, except with tits.

    She would be way more embarassing than Bush.

    I hope she gets elected for Jon Stewart's sake. Otherwise, I don't care cause I'm in a different country.

    That's the beauty of it. She would never become president with the two brain cells she's working with. So, Obama would win again. Go, Palin Go.

    Therefore - please, no Palin.
    True, to be safe it could be a good idea to not let her on the ballot at all, which is a defensive approach. However, I think that she is no threat because of her utter failures during the race with McCain.

    Yep, she would divide the Republican party between the social conservatives and the fiscal conservatives.

    Her nomination would show that the GOP still persists on the mistake of the Southern Strategy. Relying only on Jerry Fallwell's minions to provide you with the vote, in detriment to i.e. conservative intellectuals, isn't the smartest move.
