4. If Palin became the nominee
and I highly doubt she would, she could never make it through a presidential campaign. She's a quitter by nature...taking the easy way out when things get rough, as a presidential candiate she could never "cherry pick" what news organizations she'll talk to, she hates being on the hot seat and would be forced to actually address issues that would appeal to independent voters. I can't see this woman having the stamina, resolve, intelligence and work ethic needed to get through a tough campaign, plus all the criticism that goes along with being a presidential candidate. I could not even imagine her going up against Obama in a debate, I mean this is a woman who is scared to be interviewed by Katie Curic!

I know George Bush is also an idiot and he won the presidency, but he at least he won the governorship of a major state twice, not that this makes him smart, but he also comes from a powerful political family and he had his father's political forces behind him. Also, George Bush won his first term at a time when the country was at peace, the economy stable,etc., and the second term when the political strategy was to scare the living daylights out of citizens into believing terrorists were hiding in dumpsters down the street. That strategy worked in '04 but I highly doubt that now, given Obama's recent capture of OBL and political chops regarding national security. Palin is detested by the upper echelons of the GOP and I just can't see her being the nominee
