Palin has now admitted she is looking for a run in 2012. This is suicide in the political world – talking about the next race when the current one is still going on:
ELIZABETH VARGAS: If it doesn’t go your way on Tuesday … 2012?
GOV SARAH PALIN: I’m just … thinkin’ that it’s gonna go our way on Tuesday, November 4. I truly believe that the wisdom of … of the people will be revealed on that day. As they enter that voting booth, they will understand the stark contrast between the two tickets. …
VARone is still going onGAS: But the point being that you haven’t been so bruised by some of the double standard, the sexism on the campaign trail, to say, “I’ve had it. I’m going back to Alaska.”
PALIN: Absolutely not. I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we’ve taken, that … that would … bring this whole … I’m not doin’ this for naught.
It will be interesting to see what happens with Palin since there appears to be a major fracturing of the Republican party.
