I really do not think many conservatives "sat this one out". Sarah Palin did more to bring the Conservative base back into the fray than she will ever get credit for. While many would not vote for McCain, we did get out and vote for Palin, or at least against Obama as questions regarding his citizenship came to the fore and his connections with criminal enterprises came to light.

Had Palin had someone more Conservative as the front-runner, she might have done better.

What needs to happen in the next three years is the total discrediting of the MSM in the eyes of average TV watching Americans. Without that, the Right does not stand a prayer.

I doubt it, if she already got the conservative vote out, who else would another conservative at the top have brought out? IMO Sarah's problem was that she was pushed up too fast, she couldn't handle the foreign policy questions, etc (any more than I or most people could) since those areas wouldn't have concerned her as mayor or governor.
