Skip to comments.Palin Plots Her Next Move (Newsweek released article early because of high demand)

'I believe that I can win a national election,' Sarah Palin declared one recent evening, sitting in the private dining room of a hotel in rural Iowa. The occasion for her visit to quintessential small-town America was a gathering of the faithful that would have instantaneously erupted into a fervent campaign rally had she but given the word. Instead, it had been another day on the noncampaign trail, this one capped by a sweet victory: she had just attended the premiere of a glowingly positive documentary about her titled The Undefeated.
The people of America are desperate for positive change, and deserving of positive change, to get us off of this wrong track, she told me during a conversation that lasted late into the night and, inevitably, kept returning to the subject that has titillated the media and spooked Republican presidential contenders for months: her political intentions. Im not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around, she said. But I do believe that I can win.
If Palin doesnt end up running, the reason will be simple, she said. Family. If it came down to the family just saying, Please, Mom, dont do this, then that would be the deal-killer for me, because your familys gotta be in it with you.
The mainstream press is becoming less and less relevant, she said, adding that she would have no hesitation in shunning media outlets she does not trust.
I would say no to those who have lied about me. There is no need to reward bad behavior. Ive learned. You know, once bitten, twice shy. I have learned.

So do I.
Fairly positive and fair. Not much in the way of new information...but a couple of great quotes.
That'll be the shot heard around world, right there. Go, Sarah, go!
That doesn't sound good for MSNBC...

The elites are scared. They know their power is eroding, and will do everything they can to cling onto their wealth and influence at the expense of society as a whole. Get ready, because they’re going to try and destroy the country before they are willing to give it up.
MAJOR ((((PING))) 8 pages long!
Thanks in advance
I like Palin a lot. FWIW she would be my first choice to be POTUS.
That being said, it worries me that she is so hated by the left and the MSM and that she could really engergise their base.
Also I cringe at the liklihood of the MSM trashing her to the point that it destroys her personally.
I have mixed feelings for sure.
Hi! Remember Me?
You’re, Milt, Milt, Milt....uhhhh.... Rumsfeld!
They already have. And she got right back up!
LMAO......the LSM MUST post their article earlier than planned due to high demand!
Sarah is SO 2012!
What more could they say? They accused her of being complicit to murder! How more personal can one get? They attacked her family for 2 years now! It’s over with the left and MSM!
All they got to claim is that she is stupid! that’s remedied by her just debating and campaigning and talking about the issues
“They already have. And she got right back up!”
Yes, but should she announce or become the Republican nominee, it will get worse, a lot lot worse.
I agree with you. This is the most critical juncture in our history since the days of the founders. We regain the representative republic the founders fought for, or fragment into divergent states, or succumb to a single modern police state. The latter is the preference of both party machines.
