    Like you'd vote for anyone who didn't have a (D) by their name....If you could even vote.

    When she did the reality show I realized right then she had no intrest in becoming president. I would not vote for her.

    She could win, although she's a long shot. The state of the economy in October 2012 will be the major determinant in deciding the election. Apparently the Divine Sarah is not going to run because she prefers her position as right-wing gadfly. If any more is known about her disinclination to run, I've not seen it published.

    I'm not defending Palin's intelligence, but the women you list are 1) Not running for President, ever, and 2) Are acceptable liberal republican women.

    I personally don't think Palin's very bright, but I also think she gets really beaten up on by the MSM, and quite a lot of it is pretty misogynistic. I also think the MSM had misogynistic attitudes towards Hillary Rodham Clinton.

    And Ironically, Pakistan and India had female heads of State long before the United States did...

    I do think that if she got the nomination by some quirk of fate, she'd beat Obama. But Alf Landon's reanimated zombie could beat Obama at this point.

    Obama- "Ummm, errrr, ummm, It's Bush's fault. No, it's the Earthquake in Japan. Err. Irene... errr, ummm, Boehner"

    Zombie Landon "Braaaaains!" (Starts chasing Obama around the stage.)

    Again, Palin’s not stupid, she’s ignorant – and it not just a matter of semantics.

    I’m sure she’s a reasonably intelligent woman, as capable as any other average American. The issue is she’s ignorant of many fundamental facts concerning politics, government, the Constitution, and the law.

    And there’s noting necessarily wrong with that – provided one is aware of his ignorance.

    That’s Palin’s failing, she’s unaware of her ignorance and unaware of the fact she has no idea what she’s talking about.
    Yes, he did – consequently his candidacy is doomed.

    I'm not sure that she's unaware of her ignorance. She seems to revel in it.
