  •  I think they are trying to have it both ways... (0+ / 0-)

    first, they are betting that many voters are fairly "low information voters" and thus will and are voting on charisma/sisterhood/other forms of identity politics.  Palin, they think, will pull votes from Obama that way.

    but also second, they just may be banking on 2012 if the first strategy doesn't work.  Palin is not a serious choice for President now (should something happen to McCain).  Maybe it four years, it could be different (if, of course, you can overlook the conservative values).

    But we still have to take her seriously now because unfortunately, she will get some votes.
