Will the Republicans finally get their big payback for the 2008 landslide in the most ridiculous way possible?
Will she at last be able to refudiate the growing chorus of naysayers within her own party?
You betcha! Err...Maybe.
Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin told The Washington Post in an interview Friday that she is “seriously interested” in running for the White House in 2016.
“You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested,” Palin said, when asked to clarify her thinking about a possible presidential bid.
Palin, the GOP’s 2008 vice-presidential nominee, said she stood by comments she made Thursday in Las Vegas to ABC News, where she first expressed enthusiasm about potentially competing for the Republican presidential nomination.
“I am. As I said yesterday, I’m really interested in the opportunity to serve at some point,” Palin said Friday, as former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, a potential 2016 rival, looked on.I think they forgot to add "...in horror" there at the end.
For the record, as much as we'd love it to be true, I'd be willing to bet that this is just another money-making carrot on a stick, just as it was in 2012. But you never know.
So for now...take a moment, close your eyes, and imagine what a debate between Hillary Clinton and Sarah Palin would look like in October 2016. Wow...
And if that dream doesn't become a reality...she's not their only hope. There is another.
