I think DBL is pretty much spot-on. As a Democrat, I welcome Sarah Palin being elevated to anything official--RNC Chair, presidential nominee, etc. I just salivate at that field-day.

The Interesting Times

Personally I dont think Palin would be interested in the job. In my opinion it seems more like shes trying to position herself as the new William F. Buckley, Jr.


The RNC chair isnt the leader of the Republican party, but the leader of the Republican National Committee. The RNC not only doesnt set policy. Policy isnt even considered. The party chairman has two jobs, raising money and getting Republicans elected. It is not to appear on talk shows, say controversial things, and be the face of the party.Tim Kaine understands this. Hes largely unknown and doesnt say controversial things. Thats what you want in a party chair. Sarah Palin could do a good job of raising money and contrary to Elenas assertion she could be at least as effective in getting candidates elected as Barack Obama will be this fall. She can get out the Republican vote, just as he can get the Democratic vote out, and her unpopularity can be minimized by the events she holds.Sarah Palin has, however, created a Sarah Palin brand. She isnt going to suppress that for the partys brand. Republicans think Michael Steele talks too much and shell be even more controversial.She can be a GOP asset, but not as the RNC chair.


He is supposed to be a leader of the Republican Party yet he cannot even get his words to align with the partys views. While he is certainly entertaining, he is failing to raise the needed funds or provide strategic guidance the way that Dean did for the Dems in 2010. He needs to step down...but he wont. He is too busy fighting for his job, and he just kicked off his speaking tour – the 2 Legit 2 Quit tour, to be exact. VERY FUNNY....read about it here:http://www.dailygoat.com/2010/07/michael-steele-fights-rnc-chairman-job-kicks-2-legit-2-quit-tour/

PPP POLLS BY YEAR: 2006-2017

We came to PPP after a public poll in the San Jose Mayoral race showed our opponent ahead by 8 points. They found our candidate (Sam Liccardo) ahead by 3 points and that allowed us to be able to push back with the press against the perception that our opponent was now a strong favorite in the race. Sam ended up winning by 2 points and is now the next Mayor of San Jose. PPP worked very fast and had a very accurate read on the electorate when we needed them

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
