I like Sarah Palin, She makes a good spokesperson and representative for the Conservatives and the Tea Party movement. Greg has a point though:
I’ll admit that two years ago I believed her to be a good pick for VP. What’s more, I still think that the choice of Sarah Palin by John McCain was an acceptable one. That said, I am definitely in the majority on this poll result.
Almost three out of five Americans believe former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) would not be an effective president, a new poll found Monday.
59 percent of U.S. adults said they don’t think Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate and potential 2012 candidate, would be an effective president of the United States.
26 percent of adults, by contrast, said they believe Palin would be effective, according to a 60 Minutes/Vanity Fair poll conducted earlier this August.
Why don’t I think she would be an effective president? Because of everything that has happened in the two years since her selection as the nominee.
The real question that bears asking though is, “Would you vote for her if she were running against the current President?”
Liberty, you pose a really LOADED question. I like SP and think she could grow into it, but has a while yet to go before becoming presidential material. However, I would personally vote for almost anyone against the current president, yet don’t know if she would be able to carry enough of the vote to effectively unseat him.
I still believe she would be a good Vice Presidential choice, but she has to many distractions around her to be effective as President.
