Adkins: Palin has become a 'punch line'

(CNN) – On the same night Sarah Palin roused a crowd of GOP activists in Iowa, country music star and outspoken conservative Trace Adkins told CNN he hopes the former Alaska governor does not run for president.

“She can't win - she's become a punch line,” he told CNN’s Anderson Cooper Friday night. “I love her to death, but i just don't think that she's - i don't think she can win.”

During her Iowa speech Friday, Palin herself made only one direct nod to the presidential implications of her visit to the first-in-the-nation caucus state – a politely-received joke about donning sneakers to "go running Iowa."

But the former vice presidential nominee told reporters earlier Friday she would consider running for president if the right opportunity presented itself.

    I don't even know who trace adkins is. Also, I'm pretty sure nobody with any intelligence (the academe or the auto mechanic) puts any stock into anything sarah palin has to say.

    Look for my postings about 10 women who are Presidents of their country and their "DEGREES" and that's all I'm gonna say.

    Is Christine O'Donnell Sarah Palin's daughter? They favor, but Christine looks much younger.
