SARAH PALIN fortsätter att retas med både media – eller ”lamestream media” som hon brukar kalla dem – och sina anhängare. Ännu har hon inte sagt att hon kandiderar till presidentposten. Men hon tror att hon kan besegra Barack Obama.

Peter J. Boyer i Newsweek skriver:

“I believe that I can win a national election,” Sarah Palin declared one recent evening, sitting in the private dining room of a hotel in rural Iowa. The occasion for her visit to quintessential small-town America was a gathering of the faithful that would have instantaneously erupted into a fervent campaign rally had she but given the word. Instead, it had been another day on the non–campaign trail, this one capped by a sweet victory: she had just attended the premiere of a glowingly positive documentary about her titled The Undefeated.

“The people of America are desperate for positive change, and deserving of positive change, to get us off of this wrong track,” she told me during a conversation that lasted late into the night and, inevitably, kept returning to the subject that has titillated the media and spooked Republican presidential contenders for months: her political intentions. “I’m not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around,” she said. “But I do believe that I can win.”


Turning to the political landscape, Palin said that President Obama is beatable in 2012, and that there are “many, many qualified and able candidates out there” to take him on.

Asked what was to be made of the fact that so many Republicans were looking beyond the field of declared candidates to people like herself, and Govs. Rick Perry and Chris Christie, Palin said, “It suggests that the field is not set. Thank goodness the field is not yet set. I think that there does need to be more vigorous debate. There needs to be a larger field. And there’s still time. There’s still months ahead, where more folks can jump in and start articulating their positions.”

MÅNGA HAR tvivlat på att Sarah Palin – Tea Party rörelsens okrönta drottning – någonsin kommer att tillkännage att hon kandiderar till presidentposten.

Men nu ser vi två tunga indikationer på att kampanjplanerna är i full gång.

Den två timmar långa filmen ”The Undefeated” – godkänd av Palin – kommer att släppas i juni. Dessutom har Palin gett sig ut på en landsomfattande busstur för att testa av stämningarna ute i landet.

“Palin continues to say that she’s waiting to make up her mind on running for president, but her aides have indicated that a favorable response to the bus tour would push her closer toward a campaign”, skriver Politico.
