    Myself, I'm sick of the "qualified" people in our government. I'd like to see someone run for president that is the "average joe". Can't you people see that our country has been, and still is, going straight to hell because of these "qualified" people in our government that think they know what is best for our country?

    Our society appears to like to hear about political garbage on the news. The only reason they listen to Sarah Palin, is because people are still amazed by what this wanna be has to say. My opinion is that she is pretty much a joke!

    Palin may not become president but she will shape the future of this country and many positive and extrodinary ways. And there isn't a thing CNN can do to stop her, other than hire SEIU thugs to physically attack her.

    I think it's great. I hope there is a third party, and that she is active in it.

    Palin will do anything for the money.

    Why do you work so hard to keep her in the limelight? Are you just trying to highlight her looniness or do you just have that shallow an idea of politics that you consider celebrity enough to cover any self-styled leader.
    Glad Paris Hilton does not style herself a Presidential candidate and you then covered her!

    Another day another palin report by CNN. Really, you guys need to get over this obsession you have with her. Shes a zero! Shes going to go anywhere where she can milk a buck, for as long as she can milk a buck. Eventually, she will be whining in a vacuum. Except for the right wing fringe, this chick just doesnt count.

    Some of you folks need to read her book then you will see and understand what she is about...C spurgeon...I have no idea what you are talking about..the airplane incident...are you talking about the underpanty-bomber?...If it wasn't for BO giving these terrorists an open invitation to come here and get the rights of a US citizen and giving them an open world stage to spew their hatred , then these terrorists would not be so enpowered. Don't think Sarah had anything to do with that!
    Scott Stodden...you think Palin is inexperienced....I challenge you to read her book......BO is the one with NO experience and it is showing...big time.
    Donkey party...isn't that the A$$ party.......oh yes the dollar signs in place of the SS are on purpose......you have no idea what you are talking about....It is BO who is giving aid to the enemy by giving them lawyers paid for by the taxpayers of America which I am sure you are not one....Giving them a showcase to spew their hatred...and now my son, who is in the Infantry, may have to read Miranda rights to terrorists captured on the battle field.....heck NOOOOOOO what there gonna do is shoot them dead...take no prisioners is the motto.......can't get info from them anymore under Odumbo...so why let them live....so we can give them rights of a citizen????? BO is the most ignorant President we have ever had!!!!!!

    Sarah Palin is free to attend whatever conservative convention or conference she pleases. I am not a fan of Palin's.

    What is obvious to me, and disturbing is that instead of helping to preserve the Union of our Nation, instead of working with President Obama and working towards the good of our Nation, the Conservatives have chosen to obstruct, demonize, hate and tell lies in order to...... win.

    Conservatives are not interested in making America better, their goal is to win in 2010 & 2012.

    President Obama INHERITED enormous, serious and difficult problems...... FROM a Republican president! However, the GOP has been successful at convincing SOME people that the Great Recession and ALL the problems we have today are President Obama's fault.

    Americans are not stupid, nor will we fall for the Republican ideology again.

    "Sarah didn't even WRITE her own book."

    You actually believe Obama wrote his own books?

    Sadly, Sarah's bulb burns about as dimly as Dubya's. Even sadder is the fact that being cute and perky could get her elected, if she wanted to be President.

    OMG...can this woman just GO AWAY please! What an embarrassment to women she is! She is a self-serving opportunist who was unearthed like a sleeping vampire by the (not too swift) McCain campaign. She is feeding off of power and money...so what can we do to cut off her supply? Maybe stop publicizing every move she makes? Stop feeding this monster so she will shrivel up and go away. Or maybe her continued 'success' points out that there is more than one monster in this country feeding off of sensationalism and greed? Think so?

    Sarah Palin is a divider–not just because of her political and religious beliefs that her right-wing followers think are so American but because she likes to pit herself against other who don't agree with her by making up lies about them. She's full of ambition for herself and obviously cares very little about who she would stomp on to get the power that she wants. I'd prefer to just see her as a TV celebrity and think our country would be a laughing stock of the world if she became President, plus there would be a terrible revolt against her leadership in the U.S. If the Republicans think they can wage a rebellion against Obama–well, I doubt that they haven't seen anything yet compared to what would happen in our country if Palin got elected President!

    Is Ron Paul still a Repulican I thought he switched Dumbocrat. He doesn't stand for anything the Republicans do.

    Interesting,how the image of Sara Palin as presidential material is still strong in some minds when logic should have dispelled this idea months ago.Can't you just picture her in deep conversation regarding world issues with,say, the leaders of Russia, France, Israel,Pakistan or the United Kingdom?She's a personality ( like any movie star}. She has no interest in learning and continues to spout the same garbage every time she opens her mouth. She has little education and between outright lies and making up things manages to ramble on and convince people who don.t know any more than she does, to believe what she's saying.Wake up people . You're smarter than she is.

    Palin is such a popular person. Anything she says and does makes the news. It's nice to have such an honest, caring person looking out for Americas interests instead of their own.

    To our young people, listen to Ron Paul he is the only representitive in Government today that is doing everything possible to reduce the debt the baby boomer generation is passing off onto to you. You need to vote for those who will balance and pay off the US debt, or you will loose any chance of remaining free going forward.
