Sarah Palin Says ‘Yes We Can’ Beat Hillary

Adriana Cohen: Sarah Palin is the perfect foil to take on Hillary Clinton.

DES MOINES, Iowa—Sarah Palin, standing before a packed room of Republicans in Iowa, cast herself Saturday as the judge of who’s a real conservative and who can beat Hillary Clinton in 2016. “Things must change for our government,” Palin said. “Look at it—it isn’t too big to fail; it’s too big to succeed. DES MOINES — Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin told The Washington Post in an interview Friday that she is “seriously interested” in running for the White House in 2016.

So we can afford no retreads or nothing will change.” Palin, the unsuccessful 2008 vice presidential candidate and former Republican governor of Alaska, told about 1,200 people attending the Iowa Freedom Summit that the nominating process should serve as a competition, not a coronation. Palin, the GOP’s 2008 vice-presidential nominee, said she stood by comments she made Thursday in Las Vegas to ABC News, where she first expressed enthusiasm about potentially competing for the Republican presidential nomination. “I am.

She never mentioned by name either Mitt Romney or Jeb Bush, two popular moderate Republicans who are skipping the summit, though she did go after Clinton, considered the Democratic frontrunner. As I said yesterday, I’m really interested in the opportunity to serve at some point,” Palin said Friday, as former Pennsylvania senator Rick Santorum, a potential 2016 rival, looked on. She said, “Yeah, I mean, of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested.”

With Hillary Clinton expected to be their front-runner in 2016, they’ll use her gender as a tactic to gin up support from their base — especially female voters. I can already see Emily’s List pushing out emails nationwide saying, “Let’s make history by electing the first female president of the United States.” Yes, Sarah Palin was bludgeoned in the 2008 race by the Democratic machine, which tried to discredit her unfairly and turn her into a cartoon figure. Palin started a 30-minute speech addressing her latest rounds of controversy: defending both the film American Sniper and its protagonist, Chris Kyle. She also addressed the controversy that erupted recently over a picture of her youngest son, Trig, standing on top of the family’s pet Labrador, saying that the pet had been trained in Iowa.

She also has a upcoming cable TV show. “It is a significant step, of course, for anyone to publicly announce that they’re interested,” Palin also told The Post. “Who wouldn’t be interested when they have been blessed with opportunities to speak about what is important to this country and for this country?” As an ardent member of the Tea Party movement, Palin since her 2008 campaign with GOP presidential nominee John McCain has remained influential in helping conservative candidates get elected in states and in Congress. If you’re a female leader on the Democratic ticket, you’re a “hero” regardless of how many times you put your foot in your mouth, embarrass yourself or worse. In her remarks to ABC, Palin also suggested entering the GOP race with other potential big-name candidates — including former presidential nominee Mitt Romney, former Florida Gov. We haven’t forgotten Hillary Clinton saying that we should empathize with our enemies or that businesses and corporations don’t really create jobs.

Jeb Bush and a host of governors and senators — was to perhaps help get a woman elected president. “America has had enough of seeing that … sign on the Oval Office door saying, ‘No Girls Allowed.’ I know that,” she said. “It doesn’t necessarily have to be me. … but happy to drive that competition because competition will make everyone better.” The summit on Saturday will be in Des Moines and is scheduled to also include Texas Sen. In the lobby, she signed autographs for some hotel guests and mingled with the dozens of GOP figures congregated near the lobby bar, including former House speaker Newt Gingrich. Liberals will pounce and do everything they can to marginalize a conservative woman who runs for office no matter how educated, or talented, or accomplished she is. On the campaign trail last year, Palin traveled extensively to bolster her handpicked candidates, including stops in Iowa with Republican Joni Ernst, who won a Senate seat.

The reality is Sarah Palin draws huge crowds at speaking engagements, has millions of social media followers and just as many supporters across the nation. If Sarah Palin chooses to throw her proverbial hat in the ring for 2016, there’s no doubt she’d make the race exciting and bring a welcome woman’s point of view to the GOP field.
