Sarah Palin clearly does not like to be told what to do. Not by the Republican party at least. The VP candidacy left an indellible mark that she will never be able to remove. Sarah was mistreated, treated like a nobody. She clearly despises with that role.
We certainly can see the ferocous brand cultivation nowadays, the strength of conviction, and the sheer energy necessary to be in our faces to the ends she believes she deserves: a cozy Oval Office with a rug with the correct inscriptions on it.
Sarah is proud. Sarah is strong. Sarah has a solid base behind her. But, can she be magnanimous?
I suggest that the following she has is certainly a currency to get things done. But the hatred is there, too.
This is why I am asking Sarah Palin to consider the Vice Presidency again.
Its a big ask, but she would do well to take the back seat, if only to win the race convincingly. Perhaps being the co-pilot to Mitch Daniels, for instance.
Fiscally the plans by Mitch would support much of the Tea Party and Palin backers. The cut in spending, the smaller government, all ride well for those that think the government has run wild.
Romney, Gingrich and Huckabee are all non-starters.
Perhaps a deal needs to be made. A Blair-Brown deal, but one that is honored with integrity: Mitch says, "Let me president in 2012, and you have the next shot at it in 2016 - with my unconditional support".
Crazy you say?
But it is something that would work. Face it, its the only thing that could possibly work.
