Gov. Palin makes a great political move

Governor Palin resignation took everyone by surprise and many feel it is a poor move and will politically hurt her. I think the move could be brilliant. First she is being measured against what every career politician would do, but she is not a career politician. She was not educated in the Elite Colleges and she is not well connected to the Washington insiders. As an every day working person I see her as a person just like me. What I think will happen is that she will do what President Reagan did after he lost the nomination to President Ford, who was defeated by President Carter, and that is to go on a national speaking tour helping elect Conservatives to public office and educating people to what a Conservative Government is and how it is the way for the American people to move. She will be telling us that We the People need to take back our government. Even if she does not get the nomination in 2012 she will be in a great position in 2016. Many of the current crop of political leaders will be over the hill. She is still the number one drawing Republican spokesperson. She can do fundraising and not be burdened with ethics complaints and not leave Alaska in a bind with no governor. Her move will be seen as brilliant and people will truly know that it is not going to be Politics as Usual like we see now. The public will get to know her and her support will continue to grow. Every time the press attacks her she will fight back and get stronger as they lose influence. Palin for President

I think she hurt McCain more than helped him. I am sorry to say that I don't really care for her. As much as I would like to see a woman president, she is not the one. In fact I was a Hilary supporter. But if she is serious about running, she needs to be briefed well. She needs to learn more about foriegn politics and not claim she knows something because she can "see Russia" from Alaska. She needs to learn a lot. Some will not take her seriously unless she does these things. The thought of her possible becoming president if something had happened to John McCain was a truly scary thought. Regardless of what she does though, I would not vote for her. I am and will always be a Democrat and proud of it.

You prefer the President who put down America at every turn and blames us for all the problems of the world. You prefer a VP who said his President has not Experience in Foreign Affairs.

She also quit her job after hardly doing it and Alaskans complain about her being inept during what little time she was there. The politicians that have made this work in the past have also had a long history of public service and being highly regarded for it. Not Palin. Media spin aside, many people see her as an under-qualified, inept bimbo from a state on the fringes of the US.

Yet we elected a President who had less experience than her. We now learn that he can not even deliver a speech in public without reading it work for word. Even his VP said he has no experience and is not qualified to be president. Look at the country - worst unemployment in decades, highest debt, retirement savings gone, and the Unions are given ownership of the companies they helped destroy. What do you call a Male Bimbo???

Although I like Palin, the fact that she resigned halfway through her term shows that she is a quitter when the going gets tough. Nobody likes a quitter, and she has done a lot of political damage to herself by this action. She can be very effective as a citizen, but she should probably not seek political office again.

i think Palin is a great woman, but i don't think she can be the USA president. it's just my feeling. She lacks some thing to be a leader of so big country.

I think she has already aligned herself too much with the national republican establishment now though. I watched her get sucked right in to that machine like so many other of the good ones. I cringe at the thought of her going out and endorsing people like Mit Romney, or any of the other statists she has become synonamous with. If she wanted to make a difference politicly, she should have remained as Alaska's governor and continued to stand up to the feds and defended her state against the growing monopoly on power that has taken hold in D.C.
