    Not really. McCain has all the RINO support. She doesn't stand a chance without them.

    Sarah appeals to a small percent of the right wing base. She would never get enough Repuclican support to be a viable presidential canidiate.

    Obama will destroy her. She only appeals to the base which makes up approx 30% of the vote. Not nearly enough to even be competitive. What losing VP has ever succeded after losing? Gore, what happened to him? Sen Edwards? She will be lucky to keep her alaskan post.

    You mean like Lincoln Chafee, Colin Powell, and Bill Weld?

    I'm no raging right-winger, but Palin appeals to me because she's consistent, she's clear on where she stands, and isn't afraid to take a stand that might offend someone. McCain, like Bush, is incoherent, inconsistent, and lacks leadership skills.

    Disagree. I'm not part of the base, but I'd consider supporting her, and I will not support McCain.

    She has tremendous middle class appeal, and is the first GOPer on a national ticket with an iota of charisma since Reagan.

    I can already tell she intimidates Democrats politically in a way that McCain never has.
