If Sarah Palin didn't run

I'm saying "if" because I know she is going to. But hypothetically, if she didn't run, it would be the most disappointing thing that happened to women in a long time. If she didn't run, it would mean that everyone at NRO who think women should leave the room, won. It would mean that the Left who are terrified of strong women, won. It would mean that her enemies who did everything to smear her and her family, won. It would mean that she would be reduced to a "kingmaker" for the men. It would mean a return to business as usual in DC. It would mean nothing will ever change in our country. It would mean Obamacare will be in full effect and never repealed. It would mean our country would go down a shit hole so deep it would take a revolution to get it out.

But she is running, so I know there's still hope.

No one is writing about what this means to women. Have you noticed how many people are so absolutely convinced she's not running? Does the dinosaur media think women would be happy just to be a kingmaker? Do they think we should be satisfied with that, while the boys run the country? Do they think about what that would do to Palin's own personal dignity? I honestly believe they think she should be happy she got as far as she did and not try to accomplish anything more. Beggars can't be choosers, you know. They are so ancient. They are so condescending and chauvinistic. I'm wholeheartedly talking about the Right elite establishment, too. People who are that convinced she's not running don't know anything about her. They haven't read her books and don't understand her passion. She's not going to play second fiddle to anyone (no VP ever again, no kingmaker) and she loves this country too much to not try and stop the bleeding if she can. She knows she has a chance so she's going for it. The people who think she's not running are just hoping she doesn't.

Liberal women do everything to protect men, coddle them and forgive their mistakes. They luuuurve Bill Clinton to this day. That's why it's taken so long for a liberal woman to run for President, in my opinion. The men of the Right are bewildered by women who do it all. They don't understand them, and want them to go away. I'm sensing that the men of the establishment Right are starting to loathe Palin and Michele Bachmann for being strong, take-no-prisoners women.

Even though I don't support Bachmann politically at all, I'm glad she's taking the bull by the horns and running for POTUS in 2012. She needs to strike while the iron's hot, just like a man in her position would do. It's good for women. When Palin runs and wins the nomination, a true paradigm shift will occur. Thank goodness.

Amen. I think the future is bright for women in politics. But don't count on NOW's support of any conservative women and the battle is far from over for Palin and Bachmann concerning the MSM and the old guard of the GOP's treatment of them.

But Sarah has to shred her wholesome image (at least as her image is concerned) and get tough with the liars and ill-wishers. She has to start getting tough in actions as well as words. She has to do what her male counterpart, Ronald Reagan did. Screw the media and talk directly to the people.

Although she does try, her hands are kind of tied when they edit her interviews and the so-called "experts" continually and deliberatly misquote her and mislead the public about her beliefs nd comments.

It's going to be a long, hard road to the White House Adrienne. I think she can do it, but she has to get tough and play hardball. Perhaps if McCain did that in '08' and called out the media for not vetting Obama, Sarah would be the president of the Senate right now.

You're right. Bravo!! Great comment. You always know what to say. As much as a like her, she can't have it both ways - having a reputation for being tough and also having a wholesome and nice image. She needs to be like Chris Christie and say things that may be harsh, but it's the truth. She needs to reconcile the two different perceptions somehow.
