    Sounds like the NY Times is worried about 2012, and are scared to death of the possibility that Sarah would be a candidate, or that Hillary would run again. It makes for good copy I suppose, while the republicans continue through the pains of death.

    The NY Times seems to be claiming that Sarah Palin is a new kind of superwoman, transcending anything Democrat women have to offer; that Nancy Pelosi and Hillary Clinton have failed in the face of this powerful "mama grizzly," and that this failure (which the authors, in my opinion, have totally concocted) is to be blamed on "the left" (whoever they/we are).

    "The left should be outraged and exasperated by all this — but at their own failings as much as Ms. Palin’s ascension. Since the 2008 election, progressive leaders have done little to address the obvious national appetite for female leadership. And despite (or because of) their continuing obsession with Ms. Palin, they have done nothing to stop an anti-choice, pro-abstinence, socialist-bashing Tea Party enthusiast from becoming the 21st century symbol of American women in politics."

    If Hillary Clinton runs in the next Democratic presidential primary and wins. Sarah Palin wins in the GOP primaries too, holding off a bevy of Republican men. In 2012, there is a presidential race between these two women. Do we have any doubt who would win that race? Hillary Clinton, and it wouldn't be close.

    The cluelessness and utter superiority complex embodied in the above quote should explain it all.

    I agree. Hillary would win by over 100 Electoral votes.

    There are lots of people who like Sarah Palin...but there are also lots of people who like Rush, Hannity, and Beck. A very small minority would consider her a legit candidate.

    And after people complaining that Obama is inappropriate in calling out people and insulting them, would you really want a President who posted this on twitter: Silly media reports“maybe thousands”@Beck’s "irrelevant" event;insinuating MSM sheeple mustn't believe their own eyes&ears re: event's truth.

    Have you ever heard a legit political candidate refer to potential voters as "sheeple"?

    Hillary Clinton is done.... she's jetting about the globe making an ass out of herself. Getting snickered at by all.

    Done. Stick a fork in her.

    And BTW... Palin has more "real world" experience than Barry "where's my teleprompter" Obama.

    Obama's an empty suit if there ever was one... and enough people fell for that... and look at the mess we have.

    Hillary is now formally on record as being an anti-American ****, her report to the UN just totally killed what little chance she thought she had.

    I think someone over at the NYTs needs to lay off the grass.

    Hillary would beat her up, Palin would be unrecognisable after a campaign battle with Hillary. Palin would be cowering in a corner slobbering after the first debate.. :lol:
