While this Bear will acknowledge that the Tea Party could have a sizeable impact on the 2012 Presidential Election, I will steer this post back to the thread title.....
The 2012 Presidential Election
I have mentioned in this thread (and perhaps some other similar threads) that Sarah Palin could win the election. Most of you did the "pooh pooh" dance and waved me off. I still believe it is possible.
She has shown an amazing ability to draw crowds, inspire (for a ton of wrong reasons and some right reasons) potential voters, and stay in the media's eye even without a seat in the Alaska government building. The attached Time essay presents some interesting views, especially with her schmoozing of the female voters. The essay's writer acknowledges that she is still a long-shot.
Check it out.
