1. Sarah Palin Superstar

Sarah PalinWhether you love her or hate her, it would be hard to argue that Sarah Palin is one of the most fascinating people to arrive in the public arena in some time. When John McCain picked her as his running mate in 2008, it’s fair to say that most people outside of Alaska had never heard of her. Now she is a contributor on Fox News, gets a hundred grand for speaking engagements, has a media following that puts her in the spotlight whenever she appears in public, and tops at least some people’s list of candidates for the presidency in 2012

How powerful is this woman? And could she become our next president?

Looking at her sources of power helps illuminate why Sarah Palin became a populist sensation and whether her star will shine brightly in the night sky for a long time to come or whether, like a shooting star, she will fizzle out after a spectacular display of pyrotechnics.

Trump scares the crap outta me. He attacks anyone or anything that makes sense. He is anti- everything and everyone that he doesn't agree with.

Hi Terry. I appreciate the thoughtful blog with clear bullet points about Trumps character deficiencies. Unfortunately the Clintons fare equally bad for different reasons, in my opinion. You've given me a lot to think about, however, and I will watch carefully and do more research. Thank you, as always, for your honest efforts to make us question and think.

Difficult time require responsible citizens to make decisions that are less than optimal.

"We face a terrible dilemna in this election year. There may be no good choices, but there is only one fight choice and it's not Donald Trump".

Bravo, T.R. Bacon!
