Sarah Palin may yet enter the Republican field. It is not too late. Do the math.


Who said: “It is not yet too late to jump in”?
And said it no less with a Cheshire cat grin?
Why, it’s Sarah, of course.
She will throw them off course.
Cards close to her vest; she is destined to win.

“You know, it’s not too late for folks to jump in. Who knows what will happen in the future?” former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said near the close of her two-segment interview with Eric Bolling of Follow the Money from her home in Wasilla, Alaska, Dec 19. Bolling had questioned Gov. Palin if she would be entering the race even after Iowa and New Hampshire. Gov. Palin will not currently endorse a declared candidate.
After this quote she very skillfully changed the topic to her desire to host a candidate debate together with Bolling about energy policy, and so she cut off all follow-up questions.

Do the math. If Ron Paul wins Iowa all bets are off, and another entry is not only possible but probable. Who could that be?
