When Will Sarah Palin Announce Her Candidacy for the Presidency?

My guess is February 6th, 2011, the 100th anniversary of Ronald Reagan's birth. Others seem to feel the same way. Others still call that date "the worst kept secret in Wasilla."

She may be under pressure though, from Christine O'Donnell, who might announce her presidential aspirations on Halloween.

What's your prediction?

How about April 1st.

Can "hopefully, never" be an answer? Wishful thinking.

I agree with the Reagan date, too--unless someone/thing steals her spotlight. Then it will be sooner. Some of her endorsements seem to want to be Pres also,-- Rick Perry & Joe Miller. I think some of her endorsed candidates used her but will turn on her. Palin has made a mess of politics.

Actually, I am wondering when she'll announce Bristol's pregnancy.

Phil, a story on the Christian Science Monitor about Rachel Corrie: http://www.csmonitor.com/World/Middle-East/2010/1008/Rachel-Corrie-trial-continues-in-Israel-reviving-controversial-case/(page)/2

So heartbreaking, I could barely read it.

Belle, your choice of date would certainly be apt. I'm with Sally, though. It will be the Reagan date unless she needs to move it up to keep the interest/money flowing in.

I do not care what date she chooses. Anu date is a date I will protest.

I don't think she'll run.

I bet it's already been communicated to her that if she announces that day, or does anything to take the focus off of St Ronnie, Nancy Reagan will personally kick her ass. She has to announce an exploratory committee before she declares her candidacy. My guess is she will anounce the exploratory committee the day after the Nov election - Nov 3rd and announce her candidacy in January. The earlier the better to start getting her mitts on the SarahPAC money.

Not gonna happen. She's going to milk it for as long as possible to keep raking in the dough, and at the last minute, she'll have a fake "family crisis." It's too much work, and not enough money for her to get off the gravy train.

I believe her announcement to run is just like her disclosure of Trig's birth certificate. As long as no one actually knows the truth we'll all just keep guessing which automatically keeps her in the spotlight and the money pouring in.

I also believe she's waiting to be 'begged to run' so she will bear no responsibility to her behaviour during the race. Nothing will be her fault. She didn't really want to run anyway - but so many ppl begged her doncha know, and what was she to do?

That gets her out of debates nd interviews. Well, at least that's how it will read in *her* playbook.

OT - Good onya for the post re Berkowitz-Benson campaigns not getting enough attention out here.

Palin is no more going to announce on Reagan's birthday than she was going to meet with Margaret Thatcher. Nancy Reagan might finally speak publicly if so provoked, and if Laura Bush would follow her lead, this era of hateful stupidity might finally be put behind us. One can only hope that Palin would try this brazen stunt. Go ahead, Sarah. "Make my day."
