I don't think there's much room to dispute that.
I think:

is a little more specific than:

I can respect that.

The write-in mentality will likely wear off. I do know someone who wrote her in for 2008 because he could not stand John McCain. Another guy who loves Palin and plans to write her in is from the Blue State of California, and feels he has nothing to lose.

What they wanted in 2008 was a conservative. Instead, they got John McCain, of all people, who is a tepid media star.

How John McCain will "fight for you:"



Sarah Palin, on the other hand:



Get the picture?

But what is she fighting for? Has she clearly articulated her national goals, with specific examples?

She has been campaigning for conservatives, including Rick Perry, and yes, even some conservative Democrats.

All in all, she IS a fighter. And one for the conservative agenda.

McCain was a "go along and get along" type who even admitted that he doesn't understand economic issues.

I don't know her itinerary too well other than that at this point, but give it time.

Which is what for her? These are not specific examples of national plans and goals.

She was a major party's candidate for vice president. How much more "time" is needed? Is this the best the conservatives can do? Offer a personality only? One with a healthy persecution complex, but no actual plans or goals?

Free markets, lower taxes, domestic drilling, etc.

She doesn't have to be a one-issue type like Hillary Clinton, John Edwards, or Tom Tancredo.

As I said, we don't know of all her plans yet. But what she is doing is campaigning to get conservatives elected in 2010.

She JUST resigned. I don't understand why we need to be on the edge of our seats just yet.

The point is that she is weighing in on the doors that have opened for her.

Oy vey.

I don't think she's defended herself and her family when it wasn't the least bit necessary.

She may be a mere "personality" to you.

To many others, she offers both personality and substance.

Time is something she ran out of... Like Martha said she was running for the second highest office... now that she quit her time is up.

Did you see the bumper stickers that say "Sarah Palin for President: 2012 - 2014 and 1/2"

She is a quitter, plain and simple.

This bullshit about being a lame duck would make sense if she were a term-limited governor. But she is not. So she clearly didn't feel like running again (maybe she has presidential aspirations, maybe she wants to cash in), and got the hell outta there. This is motivated by her self-interest and little else.

She kept Alaska out of a deficit. That doesn't just happen out of thin air.

I don't see the point.

Remember Nixon?

Do you know anything about Alaska economics? This isn't difficult to do...

Yeah, actually it does when you're sitting on boatloads of oil reserves at a time in history when oil prices are at their highest.

Much like the province of Alberta that's sitting on huge profits, but if you take away the oil, they'd suffer total economic collapse.

"They won't have Nixon to kick around anymore."

He made a significant comeback after that.

I'm sorry, what did he quit?

Maybe, maybe, maybe...

The "plain and simple" is all based on speculation.

She did what was best for her - protecting her reputation from unfounded accusations.

And she did what was best for Alaska - not allowing the accusations to become a major distraction.
