Full disclosure: I'm a liberal Democrat who tries to read opinions and engage in discourse across the political spectrum. Here's my question to the Red State community:
After seeing how glowing most of your responses were to Palin's debate performance last night, I'm curious how many of you are willing to state right now that she will be your first choice for the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 or 2016, assuming she runs for it.
You can, obviously, change your mind along the way, but I'm interested in Red Staters' immediate response to this proposition. That seems to me to be the true test of whether you think she's really presidential material (I'm assuming that most of her views on the issues are congenial to those on this forum, so that few people here would reject her on the issues).
