Pretty nice campaign ad huh? Kevin at Hill Buzz thinks she is running. He likes the video too!

Me? I'm a Palin fan. I think she has enough cultural sensitivity to unite libertarians and social conservatives the way Reagan did.

"If you analyze it I believe the very heart and soul of conservatism is libertarianism." - Ronald Reagan

He did get Drug Prohibition wrong. Other than that his instincts were pretty good. Palin has at least made a small move in the right direction when she said something like, "chasing pot smokers should not be a top priority".

This wiki bit should give you the flavor of the man and why I have high hopes for Palin.
[Todd] Palin first registered to vote in 1989. From October 1995 through July 2002, except for a few months in 2000, he was registered to vote as a member of the Alaskan Independence Party.[14] In late August 2008, The Politico reported that Palin was registered to vote as an independent (undeclared), and had never registered as a Republican.[15] In her memoir, Going Rogue: An American Life, Sarah Palin confirms this, writing, "My husband... isn't registered with any party, for sound reasons, having been an eyewitness to the idiosyncrasies of party machines."[16] Sarah Palin reaffirmed that Todd is not a registered Republican again in her February 6, 2010, keynote address to the national Tea Party convention in Nashville, Tennessee.[17]
You can get the links from the wiki.

Anyway that is why I like Todd and have high hopes for Sarah. But this is politics. I'm ready for the inevitable disappointment. Despite some people's faith there are no saints in politics.

The Democrats hope for a Messiah and the Republicans want a Saint. Making Democrats the crazier. But not by much.
