The Fire in the Belly
Greta has a very interesting interview with Sarah Palin about the decision whether to run or not. She says she has "the fire in the belly," but lists several concerns about jumping in. After the viciousness directed at her in the past, I wouldn't blame her if she told the country to take the job and shove it, but I think that she'd heartily endorse anyone else she trusts to uphold her values. The problem with that is that anybody who meets with her privately is likely to get excoriated by the news media, as well. Michelle Bachmann stands to get much of her backing if Palin decides not to run, but don't think that means she'll be sitting this one out.
