This newly released SarahPAC video has already had almost 400,000 views. As of June 30, SarahPAC had more than $1 million cash on hand. It all hints that Palin plans to run for POTUS in 2012.
She stands a good chance of winning the nomination of the GOP. Can she win the general election? If she decides to run and doesn’t win the nomination, will her fervent fans support another nominee? If Palin runs, wins the nomination and then loses the general election, she could leave the Republican brand in pieces.
If Palin is smarter than she is ambitious, she will not run in 2012 — she has fame, fortune, and multiple platforms to leverage for years to come. Who wants to speculate on whether she is more ambitious than smart?
