I guarantee Sarah Palin will not run for President in 2012. Seriously, I don't see an electoral path for Sarah Palin to succeed as the Republican nominee, or for Sarah Palin to receive the Grand Old Party nomination during the Presidential primaries. Call me a pseudo-Conservative, but a potential candidate needs to be acting like a potential candidate, not like the female Conservative version of Geraldo.
Potential Republican candidates make a few appearances on Cable Television and Talk Radio and those same potential candidates attend Republican fundraisers, publish political essays or drink red wine with close friends and associates. Sarah Palin has joined a news network, is hosting two different shows on two different networks, and her concerns are with attending each Tea Party rally, instead of discussing an electoral game plan.
Potential candidates follow the Romney game plan: Publish a book based on the issues, appear on television as a "wanted guest" who is not often heard from, and pound the pavement on a specific issue or issues. There's a reason I will guarantee the former Massachusetts Governor will run for President, and why the former Alaska Governor will not - One wants it, the other doesn't.
With all that has been said, what is next for Sarah Palin, and can she run for President? Yes, she can run for President, but after she wins elected office as either a Congresswoman or as a Senator. The reason being; she has not served as Governor for 8 months, she is becoming a house hold name for targets and documentaries, instead of her actions as the former Governor of Alaska, and that is something that has to change, for the sake of her political future.
As for her undetermined future, I expect the Governor to continue attending Tea Party rallies, to continue appearing on television as a commentator, and soon to be host, and to continue as the Sarah Palin we all know and adore: To be the Conservative Woman who will not put up with shit.
