    Even NBC is riding on the Palin Express. On today's "Meet the Press," whether or not Sarah would run in 2012 was one of the major topics. WHY?? According to their poll, Sarah isn't even first or second on the list of GOP hopefuls. Those positions were awarded to Romney and Huckabee, respectively. But neither Romney nor Huckabee was mentioned - it was all about Palin. What is this sick obsession the media has with her??

      I don't know if it's "sick" or not, but Palin is a way to take the collective eye off the ball.  Palin may want to be president, but I don't think she has what it takes.  Obama is the worst president since Jimmy Carter.  Carter was better only in the sense that he didn't play around with our system of gov't.
      Obama wants Socialism.  Our freedoms are the reason everyone wants to live in America.  Palin at leasts loves her country.

        The press and many polls were saying the same thing about Harry Truman before he beat John Dewey in 1948.

    I am sick and tired of thinking only people like Palin love their country. I'm sure Obama loves his country as much as she does, maybe more because he is willing to help those who did not get the breaks others did. You wouldn't recognize socialism if it bit you in the butt...

    Ladybug, I have no doubt that Palin loves America, but I'm tired of seeing her and tired of hearing her. She's everywhere! It's like the media is purposely ignoring other GOP hopefuls, including the networks that hate Palin. I wonder if they're trying to convince the public that Palin is the only choice conservatives will have in 2012.

    If Palin would be our only choice, we really are in trouble!  I would like to know more about John Thune and Jim  Pawlenty.

    i watched that show. i was surprised when they counted her out also. but last night when watching her previews for her show, on it she says' i'd rather be out here than some stinky old political office" and i thought well that clears it up.
