    One thing we do know is that Bill is right on the money about her. What Palin wants is to bring this country back to greatness and be a force to be reckoned with militarilly. She believes in this country. She wants to instill pride and patriotism in Americans. This is good news for Palin because we now have a top democrat who has confirmed she is not to be underestimated.


    Bill Clinton on Palin: 'Resilient,' Like Me, Don't 'Underestimate' Her - George Stephanopoulos' Bottom Line


    Former president Bill Clinton had words of warning for Democrats who think Sarah Palin could be the best thing to happen to President Obama in a 2012 presidential bid – "It's always a mistake to underestimate your opponent."

    “In the Republican primaries she's very popular with the conservative base. She gets more people to come out,” he told me. “And she hasn't won all of her endorsements, but she's won most of them. And you know, she's a compelling, attractive figure.”

    Just because someone appeals to their base, doesn't mean shit. The probability of Palin getting elected is about that of someone like Dennis Kucinich. While a brilliant man, and certainly appeals to the liberal/progressive base, he would never be elected by the American's as a whole. Although Palin isn't brilliant, and is in fact, a dumbass, she is still very, very, very appealing to her base. But that isn't enough to ever get elected. Democrats can only hope she runs in '12! Talk about a big fat present gift wraped!

    Bullcrap. Kucinich doesn't get any attention like Palin gets. Do we see the media reporting on Kucinich endorsements. Do we have former presidents saying don't underestimate Kucinich like we do Palin here. Palin is brilliant. She beat two well seasoned politicians ( a incumbent governor and a former governor) to become executor of Alaska. She has a great record as governor and she understands the average American and the challenges they face everyday. She is not a elitist and that resonates with the average joe. Also she is a natural born citizen born to two American citizen parents which qualifies her to meet Article 2 Section 1 Clause 5.

    They elected OL'BO didn't they??

    A guy who was a community organizer and a law professor. A guy with no experience whatsoever to be the POTUS.

    Stranger things have happened than Palin getting the nod.

    Whoops. Sorry. Forgot all about that Hope and Change bullshit he was shoveling. LOL

    Never the less we have not heard President Clinton speak words like this about Obama. Clinton knows Palin and her constituency is growing rapidly.

    So....now, because Bill Clinton said something you consider "nice" about Caribou Barbie, he suddenly has clout in your estimation? Can you be anymore transparent?

    Sarah Palin has the "ears" of America. Some people love her. Some people can't stand her. Regardless of which side of that fence you are on, everybody is listening. Her popularity is growing. She has a very large base of support. She is by far the most watched political figure in America today. Most Democrats are fearful of her or they would be paying her no attention. Those that mock her are doing so mostly out of fear. Why else would they attack her? If she was "no threat" then she would have no news coverage or her opposition would move on to other things. I don't think you have heard the end of Sarah Palin. I am sure there is more to be written in the story of Sarah Palin.
