In her speech, she said:
...I'll work hard for others who still believe in free enterprise and smaller government; strong national security for our country and support for our troops; energy independence; and for those who will protect freedom and equality and LIFE...
This is pretty important. She is certainly among those who call themselves "pro-life" (which really means "against all abortions," though saying it that way would not sound as good). And on that, she and I differ. But all the other things she mentioned there are mainstream Republican ideas with which I agree, so I can hardly call her the theocrat that I think Mike Huckabee is.
So what I think of Sarah Palin is: She is certainly not my preferred choice for the 2012 presidential nominee. But if she is nominated, and runs against a re-election-seeking Barack Obama, I would certainly vote for her.
And with the troubles that Sen. Ensign and Gov. Sanford have just been going through, she just might be the nominee!
