    Sarah Palin is only out for herself. Those of you who would vote for her for President of this great nation, need to have your heads examined. She could not even finish her term as the governor of Alasaka. She has not told the truth and is only out to make money. The tea party convention will PAY her to speak.

    It fits just fine. The Tea-Party people are not faithful the the United States, and she is a traitor just like them. She just hopes to gain as much money as possible. She does not care what it does for her party or for the country.

    if palin cared about america she would not have waited to be discovered by macain to get involved in the real issues that affect the country ,as soon as she got media press she quits her elected office to write a book and make the most money she can capatilizing on free media coverage,this woman is a total fraud who has no business being commenting on americas problems ,if she quit her office in alaska she should stay out of politics otherwise what was the point ,she is starting to beleive in her own hype she thinks she will be the next US president ,hopefully nobody in the media will dare to tell her she can walk on water i fear she might beleive that too ,GOD BLESS AMERICA

    It makes sense for Palin to support the group that uses the "Taxation Without Representation" theme to support their objection to taxation WITH representation.

    I think CNN did Ron Paul a disservice by taking a very interesting interview with Ron Paul and turning it into a Sarah Palin story. Mr. Paul's thoughts on third parties in general and the two party system was very insightful. It's sad to think that CNN needed to headline the interview with the Palin name to get people to react to it.

    I'd say the woman is playing for celebrity far more than she's pursuing any kind of office. These teabaggers may represent some sort of victimized group anger therapy session, but they don't even come close to having the political organization, the vision or the public acceptance to be a real force.

    By playing to these guys, Sarah will sell books and remain a superstar to the fringe, and that's OK. At the same time, she's aligning herself with the worst conservatism has to offer. That - along a very real lack of governing knowledge or skill - will keep her from any kind of office.

    SP has shown no principles in the conduct of her life except for greed and self-interest: these are not qualities of a leader now or ever.

    Might as well have of the crazies in one place. I think Rudy Guiliani would be a great running mate for Palin in 2012. Neither one of them can get their facts straight. They can run as the dumb and dumber candidates for the tea baggers.

    Give it up Palin. You're no brighter than Bush.

    Do you think we want to go thru that again?

    Sorry Emmitt Langley, but nobody takes "Teabaggers" seriously.
    Believing that they do, is just wishful thinking on your part.

    Go Sarah!!!!

    Based on how much your popularity/support has climbed in all national polls---you are now scaring the Democrats, media, etc.

    Keep on keep'n on!!!!

    You are going to be a GREAT person to help conservative candidates to raise money for their campaigns!!!!

    The Democrats are going to get clobbered in the 2010 elections--these elections are going to make history.

    Never in the history of our elections/country-–will we see as many Democrats sent to the unemployment lines!!!!

    I am just amazed at CNN's fixation on Sarah Palin. The regular articles published are not newsworthy and any self-respecting real journalist would not write them. Stop the navel gazing and give us some real news.

    Many of the comments by your readers are also written as the lowest common denominators. The inflammatory terminology, condescending terms, and outright hostility serve no purpose, and especially do not further any meaningful debate.

    What useless drivel. We have real problems and all you can do is create imaginary ones......

    Wow. While I will agree that Ms Palin has a long way to go before she could even be considered a candidate, I'm stunned by the ignorence of her career. She took on big oil... and won. She left her job when the dumacrats made it impossible for her job to be performed. She has always taken on the interests of the people of the state she was governor for. She does need to be better about international polocy issues and she does have a way of not sounding fit for the job. After all, she went throught the same schools as most of us, not priveledged ones where you buy your prestige.

    Ron Paul is a blowhard, and palin a real loudmouth, so perhaps they should have a child and call him Rush.

    Sarah Palin wanting to basically put herself in a position of power and influence? Too bad she KWIT the (I hope) most powerful position she'll ever have had.

    It just seems that looking at America from the Caribbean is like watching TV. Its there, but it just can't be true. That so many Americans have gone to so much trouble to help the AlQuieda's of the world. Why on earth is the GOP and people like Palin trying so hard and look like they want the "Death to America "chatt to be going on in Amreica. Live together, work together and succeed together, not dived and destroy each other.

    Anybody who thinks Palin would be just as good a president as Obama is seriously out of touch with reality.

    Scott Stodden, you can't possibly be serious.


    Oh he's serious. PUMA is still not over it that's all

    Sarah Palin is no Ron Paul. One is principled, the other merely power-hungry.

    Tea Party garbage is just her speed! She can't speak at anything dignified!

    What annoys me is that the media now thinks that if they have a Republican to talk to, they have to bring up Sarah Palin. Not every Republican likes Sarah Palin, even fewer know what she's up to, and no one knows what she's thinking, so why bother asking? I'd rather hear what they have to say themselves than listen to them try to describe the actions of that woman.

    Sarah Palin is responsible for all the hatred running through the SO-CALLED "TEA PARTY MOVEMENT" and should be jailed for this act. Whenever she opens her mouth to speak it's nothing more than hate and piss that comes out. Don't forget it's not what goes into a man that defiles him,it's what comes out and everything that comes out of Sarah Palin's mouth is pure garbage and trash.
