    She's ideal in that she's basically the ONLY Republican woman right now with sufficient elected experience who will be completely non-threatening to Romney or any other future GOP Presidential wannabe.

    All her own merits (or lack thereof) aside, Palin elicited considerable jealousy from the many members of the GOP establishment who thought they were next in line and not a half-term Governor from somewhere outside of the lower 48.
