My friends and colleagues know I like to make political predictions.  (Yes, I did, in public, predict that George W. Bush would nominate Harriet Miers to the Supreme Court.  Recall that Dick Cheney, in charge of the VP committee, selected himself so there was precedent that I relied on).  So I want to clearly state via the blog that, yes, I believe that Sarah Palin will run for President in 2012.  I really want to predict that Palin will win the GOP nomination (and that would be my prediction if I had to make one today), but I don’t feel comfortable making this bold assertion until after the mid-term elections.

For support for my ‘she will run’ prediction see here.  When you think there’s a change that you could be elected president and a buzz surrounds you, you usually go for it (see, e.g, Barack Obama).

UPDATE: It seems that I was on something.  See here.
