Palin in 2012? Yes Please!

It's hard for this Obama supporter to fathom the current growing consensus(more and more) that Palin is positioning herself for a Presidential run in 2012, and is the obvious front runner for the nomination. I mean, I understand that the base luuuuuurves her, but assuming McCain loses, won't a big chuck of the GOP blame the Palin selection? She may have Rush Limbaugh in her corner, but who else? I can't imagine a single Democrat who wouldn't relish Obama running against her in 2012.

It seems to me that Mick Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, and Jeb Bush are all much, much, much stronger contenders and this point. Huckabee being the one who scares me the most, though I don't know much about Bobby Jindal besides the exorcisms.
