I’m not sure what to think about Sarah Palin. I will tell you this one fact, she is not dumb—it takes charisma, character, and a great deal of intelligence to run a campaign and win the campaign to be Governor of any state.  He unemployment record in the state of Alaska is not exceptional (7.2% when she started, 7.2% when she ended her term in office)[1]. She has had a strong history of reform in her home state, as she challenged her own party on ethics while serving on the state’s Oil and Gas Conservation Commission [2] But, there is something utterly charismatic about her…

This past Saturday, Former Governor Palin led a Tea Party rally in Madison, Wisconsin, she was not afraid to go after the top brass of the GOP (“We didn’t elect you to rearrange the deck chairs on a sinking Titanic”), to show compromise with union members (“A pension is promise that must be kept…[Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker] is trying to save your jobs and your pensions”), and most of all was not afraid to challenge President Obama (“Mr. President, game on!)[3]. If there is one thing that can be said about her, it is that she does not back down—she has been in strong support of drilling for oil in Alaska, even in the face of harsh criticism from the far liberal left. She also was able to manufacture large tax rebates for her state, including a $1,200 check for each resident of the state[2].

Sarah Palin is not your cookie-cutter candidate, but admittedly, as a former Obama supporter, he had the same charisma and the same uniqueness that may help Sarah Palin as the election approaches and she mulls her own run for office in 2012. Still not up to the level in job creation as Romney or Rep. Ryan’s plan (both of whom I have praised on this blog), but maybe, just maybe—she might break the glass ceiling with that go-getter attitude.
