In 2012, will it be McCain vs. Palin?

If Sen. John McCain and Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin manage to win this election for the Republicans, will they be fighting over the White House in four years’ time? That’s the question that occurred to me again and again as I thumbed through Kaylene Johnson’s slender biography, “Sarah: How a Hockey Mom Turned the Political Establishment Upside Down.”

Its portrait of Palin is quite flattering. Most controversies are dispatched with a few thin strokes. The final sentence has shades of that old George Washington cherry tree tall tale, thrown in for good measure. The young Palin, writes Johnson, “learned to work hard, stand up for herself and never tell a lie.”

However, it isn’t all flattering. Savvy readers might find cause for concern in Palin’s burning ambition, her ruthlessness or her complete lack of loyalty to political patrons. One sensible reason for Sen. Barack O

  • So whats the problem???? She eats shit-bag corrupt politicians for breakfast. Obama comes from the "you scratch my back and I'll scratch yours" political establishment that has crippled our once great nation. So she's the type that claws her way through your back and rips your beating heart out. I can't wait to see her go through Washington like a tornado......it will be entertaining at the very least. With Obama....same old blah, blah, blah gridlock bullshit we've come to expect More..

  • Watch this country revolt if Palin comes anywhere near the whitehouse.

  • its not just her lack of experience but overall lack on knowledge that really bothers me. Mccain would rather win the competition then give america a suitable alternative upon his death.

  • I see the same fu*kin' situation similar to JFK and LBJ.
    When JFK died, LBJ took over and we had Vietnam War.

    Do I see another Vietnam War or another Iraq with Palin for ideosyncracies and for oil?

    I definately think so.

  • Have no fear. If McCain wins on November 5th, Hillary will begin campaigning on November 6th.

  • To answer the question NO she cannot run against McCain should McCain seek another term. If you are a Republican you cannot run against the incumbant President. Now if McCain for some reason doesn't complete his first term or doesn't want to run for a 2nd term then Palin in free to run if she want. That would mean she would in 2012 likely face Hillary Clinton again. That would be some cat fight.

  • The statistical chances of McCain dying of natural causes before then end of the first term are 25%.

    • What are you talking about? Have you seen McCain's mother at the events? She is 96 and looks perfectly sharp and able. Not only does he have good genes, he was a fighter pilot. They undergo the most strict physical fitness screenings on the planet. Next to perhaps NASA astronauts. He isn't about to kick the bucket, that is just wishful thinking from spiteful libs.
