Will Sarah Palin take this mind-boggling strategy to oust Obama?
If Sarah Palin ran as a Republican candidate in a crowded field, she might win. Then again, she might not. She would be a late entry. Much of the big money needed to win is already committed. She would add some excitement to the GOP race, but she might not stand out all that much.
Only one Republican is going to get to face off with Barack Obama in 2012, and I can hardly count the number of contenders for that opportunity right now. She’d be a frontrunner for sure, but her tea-party base is already eyeing other candidates.
However, there is something Sarah Palin could do right now that would be truly radical – and, at the very least, bloody Barack Obama so badly he wouldn’t have a hope of beating the Republican nominee.
Brace yourself for a crazy idea.
Sarah Palin should reregister as a Democrat and announce her intention of seeking the Democratic Party nomination in 2012 over Barack Obama!
Crazy? I told you it was crazy.
But think about it.
How many Republicans nationwide would reregister as Democrats right along with her – temporarily – to support such a bold, unprecedented political move?
How many independents, who might not otherwise participate in primaries at all, would do the same?
How many Democrats, realizing they made a profound mistake in 2008, would vote for Palin?
