What a shame to hear the news that Sarah Palin won't run for president in the 2012 elections. She is a strong lady, and would certainly fit as the first female president of the United States. I fully understand her decision, and claiming her family as the primary reason, only underlines the point I am trying to make.
Politics need more women, and Sarah Palin IS a person whom we all admire and like. She says exactly what she thinks. Even though some have criticized her for her alliance with the Tea Party organization, she is the strong hand needed to reestablish the finances of the United States.
It is a sad day for politics, and the old boy network will enjoy the chance to run for candidacy now that she isn't running. I hope she changes her mind and runs in 2016. She is the woman America needs in the White House.
