Marc thinks Palin could run in 2012:

Here's a thought: the wave of establishment Republican-types endorsing Obama is going to lead to a massive, massive anti-elite backlash in the 2012 GOP primary. Think about the Democrats' anti-establishment feelings in 2003 -- Howard Dean, the Democratic wing of the Democratic Party, and then gin up the outrage by factor of ten.

Whether the nominee ends up being Palin or Huckabee or someone else, that nominee is going to have to cater to these feelings of anger and betrayal in order to get the nod.

I don't see it. But I'm not really in touch with the truly angry, populist, Christianist right. Someone should ask Mickey, I guess.
