"Why Sarah Palin isn't running for president: 5 theories"
5.Palin is saving her fire for 2014, or 2016, or..."In true Palin form, her announcement does leave the door open for plenty of speculation," . "Notice how she makes it clear that she 'will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination,'" saying nothing about 2016. It's true, says Hot Air's Allahpundit, that Palin is just "47 years old, fully 25 years younger than McCain was when he was nominated three years ago." There's clearly "no rush." If she challenged Sen. Mark Begich (D-Alaska) in 2014 and won, that "would be a huge first step back towards national viability down the road." Hey, if she backs the winning Republican presidential candidate this year, says Dan Riehl in Riehl World View, she might even wind up as energy secretary.
