Can Palin Win?

I'm not sure Palin's the best candidate for 2012 but she certainly is a muy serious contender:

Just barely a year ago I published "Can Palin Win the 2012 GOP Nomination?" I laid out what I considered the necessary prerequisites for Sarah Palin's emergence as viable, top-tier candidate for the nomination in 2012. The very first comment at the post was offered by the radical progressive LeMonton, who dissed Palin's chances: "dream on dude, dream on."
