Sarah Palin, in resigning from her Governor's office, no longer has any status in the party. She's a talking head now, and she's signed on to contribute to Fox. The only people who like her are the extreme right, and some of the Tea Party movement. My dad loves her. He gets mad when we talk about it; I will not vote for her. If she's on our ticket, I'll either vote third party or stay home.
My candidate of choice thus far is Mitt Romney. I don't have a list other than that, but I'd support Mitt. Or Newt Gingrich. Maybe Huck, but he's too far right for me, really.
