Is Palin Really Possible? If Not Her, Who Is?

So former Gov. Palin of Alaska sat down with The Oprah last week, and today the gauzy canoodling (I mean interview) was aired. And it's got me wondering - do you honestly think she could win the Republican nomination? And for that matter, who do you think could/couldn't out of the people who are thrown around as possibilities? Who are the real runners, and who might run, but doesn't have a chance to win the nomination? In addition to Palin possibilities would seem to include Mitt Romney, Gov. Pawlenty, Gov. Barbour, Sen. Thune, Newt Gingrich, Rep. Cantor, Gov. Jindal, Gov. Perry, Mike Huckabee, Dirk Kempthorne, and because she'd seem crazy enough to run, Rep. Bachmann.

In the no chance pile I'd be inclined to put Gingrich, Cantor, Jindal, and Huckabee, along with Bachmann. Actual possibilities would seem to be Romney, Barbour, Thune, Perry, Kempthorne, and I guess possibly Pawlenty. And as to Palin ... I'm not sure what to think - so what do you think?

What about Crist. I'm fresh off of watching Outrage, and I'd just love to see the repugs nominate him and have the whole thing blow up in their faces. Seriously, I'd imagine it to be between Pawlenty and Romney, sad as that may be. Honestly, I question whether Palin will either try, and if she does, whether she'll make it to Super Tuesday.

I can't imagine Charlie Crist seeking the Republican nomination for president right now. Maybe if McCain had picked him instead of Palin. But given the current state of the party, I don't see it.
