Sarah Palin has been the former vice president candidate for the Republican Party. A number of experts believe that if, by any chance, the 2012 Republican primary was held now, the major competition will be between the former Alaska governor, Sarah Palin and previous Massachusetts governor, Mitt Romney. Sarah Palin is considered as of the most interesting conservatives. She has been a major attraction form the Republican politics, during the last decade. Some of the pundits consider her, one of the most convincing presidential possibilities for the year 2012. However, Palin is keeping silent about the fact, that either she would run for the presidential elections next year or not.
She is no doubt the most visible and noticeable lighting rod of the Republican Party. She is a rough individualist, who probably detests politics as usual. She has been subjected to severe criticism by many people on resigning as governor. Most of the people are aware of the fact that she resigned from the post on July 26, 2009. The majority of her critics suspect her resign as a high political gamble as she was left with just one and a half year for her first term. On the other hand, her supporters are considering it as her act of selflessness. They think that she made her decision for the betterment of the state. She has been spending more time on dealing with the personal attacks at the end of her administration, rather than concentrating on the people’s problems.
Sarah Plain has made some incredibly intelligent moves during her political career. Her polished skills were visible when she ran for governor of Alaska. Sarah Palin ran a very shrewd campaign when she ran for Wasilla Mayor. She has been a very determined person during her political years. She stood up extremely well against the Democrats during the year 2008 for president campaign.
However, there is no sport more serious and brutal in the United States’ politics than Republican-on-Republican internal strife. Presidential campaign is much rougher and difficult that the local or state politics.
In light if this, we are left with a number of legitimate questions about the potential candidacy of Sarah Palin. The first question that comes in our mind is will she be capable of standing against the force put upon her by her opponents. These opponents include the grizzled Republican veterans like Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney. Most importantly, would she be given a fair shake by the media? The first question is surely debatable. However, the second question has been answered by the tragic event that occurred in January 2011. There was a brutal shooting incident that killed six people and injured eighteen individuals. Congresswoman, Gabrielle Giffords was also among the affected people.
According to the Pima County Sheriff, Clarence Dupnik, the conservative talk radio was the major reason behind the shooting. The mainstream media blamed Sarah Palin for her violent public-speaking. This incident did a considerable damage to her reputation. However, that is not the first time such an incident took place. She has handled such scenarios before and is resilient. Only time will tell if she runs for president or not!
