OK, I now think I was wrong.
I now think she is running.
One experienced observer, seeing the Palin operation in Iowa, says this:
“They are very organized, and the team they have in place is unlike anything I’ve ever seen in this state before — and I’m totally impressed by the way they’ve gone about it,” she said. “It’s going to be a major upset if she gets in because I think these people are very underestimated.”
Maybe this really is all just hype, to sell books. But it is looking more and more like an extremely unorthodox but serious effort.
Say this for the GOP nomination race: It is first rate political theatre. A thrill and a chill a minute.
Maybe it will even produce a candidate that can beat Mr. Obama.
God bless America.
