    The article states he will handle political operations as she considers a possible 2012 presidential bid. Aparently she is in full control and trust the fellow. This is going to shake things up in the GOP and with the other possible candidates. This guy is a real professional with serious connections within the old GOP. Not the kind of person who signs up to work with the village idiot. Also causes problems for Romney who has spent the last two years glad handing the “GOP insiders”. Sounds like a good hire to me.

    I do believe that Gov. Palin will show herself to be a completely different animal when running her own campaign.

    Many stereotypes about her are going to be shattered.

    We've had two class clowns for the last two years.
    The more candidates the better imho. Me, I'm not liking Mitt Romney this time around just because of RomneyCare in Taxachusetts. I think we need a President more like Ron Paul.

    Paul/Palin 2012 sounds good to me!

    She's gonna find out what a real media woodchipper feels like. Up to now, the media's only been sparring with her, taking the odd pot shot.

    I don't know if Paul would ride shotgun. I doubt if Palin will again.

    Bullshit. The media, thanks to Obama's goonishness, has been stalking her for years. Literally. Also lying about her, harassing her, and working hand in hand with the thugs hired by the Obama camp to ruin her.

    I hope she wins.
