The Politico article referenced in the video has some choice words for Palin.
Top Republicans in Washington and in the national GOP establishment say the 2010 campaign highlighted an urgent task that they will begin in earnest as soon as the elections are over: Stop Sarah Palin.Well that is their "official" reason. In my opinion the real reason is that she threatens the good ole boys club (Which is a state of mind - women belong too. See Lisa Murkowski in Alaska.). And what is it about that club? They are more interested in their perks, their "access" than the good of the nation.
Interviews with advisers to the main 2012 presidential contenders and with other veteran Republican operatives make clear they see themselves on a common, if uncoordinated, mission of halting the momentum and credibility Palin gained with conservative activists by plunging so aggressively into this year’s midterm campaigns.
There is rising expectation among GOP elites that Palin will probably run for president in 2012 and could win the Republican nomination, a prospect many of them regard as a disaster in waiting.
Many of these establishment figures argue in not-for-attribution comments that Palin’s nomination would ensure President Barack Obama’s reelection, as the deficiencies that marked her 2008 debut as a vice presidential nominee — an intensely polarizing political style and often halting and superficial answers when pressed on policy — have shown little sign of abating in the past two years.
If the "official" GOP is against Palin, I'm for her. The thing about Palin is that she is a street fighter and the country club boys are not. She is going to come out on top and they will not. Will she be elected President in 2012? You betcha.
