Some of your topics are quite interesting without the innuendo.
In the office yesterday one of my democrat friends was discussing this topic. He feels that Palin will be the sacrificial lamb leading to the presidency. She will be put out as a front runner then have the carpet pulled from under her and that Jeb Bush will come from nowhere to secure the nomination. I don't know if this is the case, but it was far more interesting a theory than most I have heard. And not only that but if you add in Palin as VP you have a very interesting ticket indeed. Is it a winner? Depends on too many variables right now. Will it make any difference if it is? Don't know, but I do believe that Obama is not wowing right now. We shall see if that changes as the election comes closer.
However, Rather than him focusing on that, he should be focused "like a laser beam" on the economy.
You lost me at the begining there.
I'm not in the US anymore, so it's much harder to have a good sense of how people's views are going. I'd be amazed though if a Bush and a Palin could team up. You're talking a lot of aminosity there from the middle and the left over W's wars etc.
Romney isn't stupid either and he knows he has to win the middle ground. McCains attempts to draw in the right through Palin failed to win him POTUS and Romney knows that she's a death wish because of that.
Palin may run and run with someone like Ron Paul, but then would Ron Paul want to be tarnished by Palin and compromise enough, I doubt it, but he may. I think more likely would be that guy from Texas, Rick Perry, him running with Palin as VP, but it's such a right wing ticket I think they'd get hammered come election time.
Romney with another moderately moderate seems to be the Repubs best chance.
