But if McCain loses, next week's pow-wow will include who to groom as the next generation of conservative leaders. Yes, Palin will be at or near the top.
There's more than just a few rumors out there that conservatives and Sarah Palin fans are planning for a "Palin for President" move in 2012. In fact, some are even calling her "the new Ronald Reagan." Talks on this topic got even louder this week.
Don't laugh. It's true. Yes, she said being able to see Russia from her house gave her foreign policy cred, and yes, there's criticism that she's been a drag on the GOP ticket this year - including of course, even McCain's own people calling her a "whack job." But love her or hate her - she's energized a base that needed more than a little excitement that the 72-year-old McCain just couldn't quite rally himself, or with another older white guy.

So with saying all of this and everything we know about her, would she be a good pick?

Palin, with a lot of grooming for experience, could be a viable choice for 2012, but she isn't my first choice at all.
If it were up to me, I'd start getting JC Watts ready to run. I've been saying for two years now that he was the future of Conservatism in this country.
