Is Sarah Palin stealing the spotlight from Republicans who really do intend to run, or is she really really really running herself?
The evidence suggests she is engaged in that age old American pursuit of self promotion, or polishing the chrome on her own Sarah Palin brand. Nothing wrong with that, as long as it doesn't go on too long.
The Republican who will challenge Barack Obama successfully has not emerged yet, but we're seeing that person's outline just offstage. If Palin were to run, she would be formidable in the primary. But if she's not, she should clear the way for those people who really do plan to make a go of an Obama challenge.
Don't get me wrong, Sarah. If you're in it to win it, go for it. I'll be cheering on virtually any conservative seriously vying to challenge Obama. Not Trump, of course. I said anyone seriously in it.
