"Palin times three". Right. So far Bachmann has won in one area of Minnesota and a contest in Iowa where Palin did not compete.
Palin proved her appeal in most areas of the country in 2008.
We should be glad she did not run in the 2012 campaign.
But we should not be at all glad that Perry is running. And his candidacy is why Palin will not run. Bachmann's candidacy would have melted away had it just been her vs Palin. But Palin knows she cannot compete with Perry as a governor. And Bachmann has no chance--since she has no record of governing.
Now we can watch Bachmann's campaign disintegrate as her ostensible followers desert her for Perry--who has more than one string to his bow. Especially the economy. Which Bachmann does not.
