Here is one thing you are missing about Palin if she decides to duke it out in the primaries. The American people are the most forgiving people on earth. If she lays out the fact that staying in office was going to bankrupt her because of the hundreds of thousands of dollars racked up by frivolous law suits, I think she can jump that snake.
Now to your second point:Experience. What politician knows more about energy than she does?. What politician has taken on big corporations like EXXON and won? What politician has not only balanced the state budget but returned refund checks to the taxpayers? What politician is responsible for the AK to US natural gas pipeline being built? I have heard those poo hoo her experience in that field but what was the Gulf War fought over. Answer, oil, prevention of Iraq taking over S.A. and stabilizing the M.E. So, now we have energy and the military intertwined.
To my next point. She is in favor of and can verbalize to an extent that would put any of those other duds in the Repub Party the importance of drilling offshore. This country needs to drill baby drill so that tens of thousands of new jobs can be created and that we can quit sending billions out of the country. It does not make sense to import oil and natural gas when we have plenty here.
You think the Gov of a state like AR requires that much more accumen than the state of AK. Granted Bubba was in office a lot longer but like he said during the last campaign no one is prepared to become president. It's on the job training. I have no doubt she could handle the job with quality people surrounding her. Plus she has a hell of a lot of common sense which beats the hell out of many of other attributes that political pundits ascribe to.
I rest my case:)
I don't know anyone, friend or foe , who'd ever call Cheney a compassionate conservative. He always struck me as a guy who watches his friend's backs and kicks ass and takes names from those who aren't. I would bet the farm that during their 8 years in office he was chomping at the bit to go after the people who were tearing down the administration on a daily basis. The guy is a personification of NOT being a girlie man.
