    look at it as a problem in logic:

    1. ignore Palin, and she rallies the GOP and independents for 2010, raises money, speaks out about stupid policies, and generally costs dems votes and money. Not a good outcome. its somewhat like Rush, if you ignore it, its still there, and if you attack it, it gets stronger.

    2. Attack Palin, as a woman and mother, as a rube from AK, as a quitter, as uneducated, unpolished not a competent politician. You may take some of her support away, especially the younger ones who watch pop TV. The older voters love her. Its the same as Rush, the more she is attacked, the stronger she gets.

    So you either love her or hate her, and no one is going to change your mind. We'll just see how the voting goes. IMHO she is a pretty cheerleader, not a competent leader.

    Palin appeals to the 26% right wing conservative voters.

    Her crossover appeal is limited. She can bring home the vote of conservatives but is political poison in other groups

    If "she can bring home the vote of conservatives," then she can get elected President, because it's been clearly established quite recently, conservatives are the majority in America.

    Don't know if I'd vote for her or not, but I'd trade her in a heart beat for obama.

    Why is the left obsessed with her? Because they know she poses a valid threat to their power.

    I didn't know there was more than one. You're either conservative or you're not.

    From all appearances it seems as if you and a only few others are obsessed with the former_____(fill in the blank). Palin is a media and cultural phenomena precisely because her fans have done things like rally behind her before really knowing anything about her, and buying her book before it is even released. Sort of funny when you stop and think about it.

    The eruption of fury and obsessive attack of the elitist left against Sarah Palin is largely due to the fact that Palin...a pro-life happily married woman with five children....represents the antithesis of the liberal social construct...their anti-life, anti-family posits are simply blown away....she hits them dead center where they live...just by being herself...

    ...and they are afraid she will expose their lies...thus take away votes....people who are afraid will either run or go into attack mode...
