TIME Person of the year: Gov. Sarah Palin is the 3rd runner up

Wow! I think it took a lot for TIME's editor to admit that Gov. Sarah Palin is really popular.  But instead of putting her the first runner up ( Sarkozy is the first runner up!!), they put her for 3rd runner up!  

Still congratulations is in order to Gov. Palin, just 6 month ago, she was hardly a national figure. But like it or not she is now.  

But do try to read the article about her in the TIMES and compare it to what they had to read about President elect Obama.  The contrast in the tone, one being so rosy and the other not, is amazing.  But I not surprised any more.

This will be my last post for this blog, thank you for stopping in on daily basis for the last 6 month.  I think we ended the year with a positive note for Gov. Palin. We wish her well and hope she will come back stronger and more dynamic than ever before.  

But if you still want to stay in touch, you can visit me here which is my regular non-political but inspirational blog

Is Palin a kingmaker?

After Chambliss won in Georgia, he credited Gov. Palin for his victory. So, who would Gov. Palin endorse for RNC chair?

Marc Ambinder wonders the same and says:
"Who will Sarah Palin endorse for RNC chair? Who's the Palin candidate? Saxby Chambliss's victory has certified the Palin wing of the party as the center of its gravity -- at least, that's how the GOP seems to be treating things. If Chambliss's words are indicative of GOP thinking, Republican activists and conservatives, then Palin must have a pretty tight grip.
The answer to the question is that Palin hasn't endorsed an RNC candidate, and her political advisers aren't saying whether she will."

Georgia Crowd Came Out For Gov. Palin

Crowds lined the street from the James Brown Arena waiting to get in to see Sarah Palin speak with Sen Saxby Chambliss.

And here is what she had to say: "All of this depends on you tomorrow. Georgia," she told several thousand gathered this morning at the James Brown Areana. "The stakes are so high. America is depending on you."
Mrs. Palin said Republicans need to hold the line in the Senate. She said the party offers checks and balances to stop tax hikes, promote conservative energy polices and see the war on terror end with a successful conclusion.
