It’s been a wide open race for the Republican nod for the 2012 Presidential campaign. But there’s always been an “elephant in the room.” No, not Chris Christie. GOP candidates can stop looking over their shoulders -- Sarah Palin will not run for president.
Palin made the announcement on the Mark Levin radio show, but she went on FOX News after to explain her decision.
“But I believe that they -- when they take a step back -- will understand why the decision was made and understand that really you don’t need a title to make a difference in this country. I think that I’m proof of that.”
A writer for Slate agrees, Palin doesn’t need to be president to have an impact.
“She is an exceedingly talented self promoter. This is a big deal, because self-promotion is something that American women have historically been bad at, and they pay for that shortcoming in everything from mediocre salaries to thwarted ambitions.”
But she’s still got her Fox News gig, except that network chief Roger Ailes recently told the AP she was hired because she was quote “hot and got good ratings.”
As for Palin’s future ambitions, a writer for The Guardian says this effectively ends her career as a major political player.
“The weakness of the 2012 Republican field was such that had Palin chosen to make a serious effort, she could have done well. She could have won the nomination. Now she almost certainly never will.”
So no Palin, no Chris Christie. It looks like the Republican field is pretty much set. CNN’s Mark Preston and Carol Costello suggest Palin just didn’t have what the GOP was looking for.
Mark Preston: “So Sarah Palin probably made the right decision, Carol.”
Carol Costello: “Yeah, and Republicans -- at least it seems that way right now because Romney remains on top -- Republicans want electability, right? They want somebody who can beat President Obama and Sarah Palin was not that candidate, at least in their minds.”
Palin says she’s undecided on a candidate to endorse within the current field, but she did say she’s “impressed” by businessman Herman Cain.

You couldn’t talk about politics during the 2010 election without mentioning tea. The grassroots Tea Party movement claimed candidates … who won elections, and even created their own caucuses in Congress. But, as the 2012 cycle heats up, has the tea gone cold? NPR has reflections from a New York Times reporter.
“The Tea Party was always going to be a phenomenon of a midterm elections ... and when you have smaller voter turnout a group like the Tea Party can have more of an influence.”
The headlines agree. The Tea Party hasn’t been as big a force this election cycle. But don’t tell that to Rick Santelli. The man who some credit with the start of the Tea Party movement after a TV rant … has another rant ready … this time for CNBC.
“While the vandals are on the street corners, the Tea Party Conservatives? They’re working the state houses, the governorships, the mayorships, the Senate, the House.”
So according to Santelli, the Tea Party is largely silent because it did its job. It got its candidates into the halls of power. But the Daily Beast says while there aren’t the massive rallies of 2010, the Tea Party is still a part of the 2012 campaign conversation.
“...while the Tea Parties may not be dictating who the candidate is this year, they certainly have dictated the issues the candidates are talking about and what they are saying, particularly in the area of fiscal restraint, free-market capitalism, and the virtues of the Tea Party’s favorite historical document, the U.S. Constitution.”
And the Tea Party’s lack of active participation in picking a candidate this election cycle might be on purpose. On the topic of candidates, Tea Party leader Mark Meckler tells the Daily Caller ...
“‘Nobody’s thrilled. … I’m not seeing any sort of consensus around any of the candidates because I don’t think anybody’s entirely satisfied,’ he said. Asked to name leaders that tea partiers wished would have run, Meckler mentioned Indiana Rep. Mike Pence, Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal, Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels and New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie.”
But a Tea Party member tells WTSP in Tampa the thing about the party is … well … it’s NOT a party.
“We’re not a national party, we’re a national movement.”
