35. she'd win the south but blue areas of the country even in a repub primary would reject her.
The serious repubs in the race would kill her in a debate. She'll be the fred thompson of 2012 if she runs. She'll have all this hype going in but once the rubber hits the road they'll pick somebody else. She's just a political celebrity and even the repubs know that she's not qualified. Nominating her would be like them nominating oreily or glen beck.
