    There are a lot of people fed up with both the Democratic and the Republican parties. Maybe Sarah Palin is one of them and is holding her cards close to her chest until she decides to make a public statement. I am fed up with both the Dems and the Repubs. I think most Americans are. Maybe a shake-up is in order. Maybe it is time for a new political party to be born? There's nothing in the rule books about it, and except for tradition, there has only been two major political parties. Maybe it's time for that to change. Time will tell about all of this. Another possibility, and one that I find interesting, is maybe Sarah Palin isn't interested in running for any political office in the future. Sometimes we are all so bent on trying to first guess everything that we don't take real statements at their face value. Regardless of what she decides to do, it will be interesting. Like her, or hate her, she has the attention of the American public. That in itself is a powerful thing.

    I think most republicans are afraid to support her because they know she will get bashed.

    I think most republicans are afraid to support her because they know she's just a talking head. She's got the down-home charm, and the folksy way of talking - but there's nothing behind that.

    The Dems are praying that Palin be the GOP candidate.

    Truth is that Governor Palin would have made a good VP. And during those 4 years would have learned a lot about national politics and maybe would have been a contender for 2012. But she didn't make it as VP and did not get the National exposure and experience. So is she a viable candidate for the 2012 presidential election? No way in hell.

    I'm just curious - in what way would she have made a good VP?

    I would not see the republican party go down again if it meant getting more people like Ron Paul and less people like McCain in it.
