Fun Gus I think your turning into Spock or Jesus talking parables. Either way she is going for the money with a possible intention of believing she can win in 2012. If it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck it must be a duck. O nce she got taste of the limelight why go back to small Alaska when you can be a national star? She is going to milk this thing till people get tired of her. Power changes people you should know that Fun Gus?
I said it before, I dont know how I can be any clearer: she will not run in 2012, and she will leave politics on the national 'stage', same as Quayle, same as Agnew. History, gentlemen....
Why stay in office with a special needs child and 20 legal challenges against her? And as a 'lame duck'?She already said she wont seek reelection. Just as Agnew, she resigned and now she will get her just desserts. Quayle became a millionaire. Agnew became an trade executive and pocketed millions. Al Gore is trying to save the planet, and Cheney is about to cash in. Look at every VP that has sat in office or competed in the last 25 years. Just look. Bush Sr, POTUS. Qualye, out making $$. Al Gore: Captain Planet. Cheney: was already rich when he was VP, but even he will do the 1500$ rubber chicken circuit.
This is different. She is a newborn momma, thats a whole new paradigm. Scout, you say 'she's going for 2012', I see it as she has her hands full now. I see her not even contemplating another white house run. I have a special needs kid, and I can tell you that means more then some 'job'. I see her using her 'folksy' demanor to raise lots of $$$ for another candidate in 2012, and to line her own pockets as well. Expect a full court press when her book come out in 2 years...I do not see her as the atypical politician
type, you guys do. I guess time will tell. I suggest looking up what Andrea Mitchell has to say on the matter....I must say, my batting average is looking pretty good right now
