Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer speaks to the Arizona GOP
Please, please, please, please, please, please, oh, please ... do it!
If you're sipping on a cup of coffee, a glass of water, or a can of soda, put it down now.

And then read this headline on the CBS News website:

Jan Brewer in 2016?
First thought: For what? Mayor of Phoenix? But that election is in 2015, so nope. This is a headline asking whether Jan Brewer will be a presidential candidate in 2016.

I'm tempted to give a one word answer to the question: "No." But it's a free country, so I guess anything's possible. And CBS did uncover some intriguing evidence of a possible Brewer bid:

A recent forum on conservative commentator Sean Hannity's website spent six pages debating the question: Could Jan Brewer run for president?
Other than that, nothing, really. But who knows? Maybe Hannity's website forums could prove to be kingmakers. If they decide Brewer could run, maybe she will. A boy can dream, right?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
