Palin Chatter Rekindled by Christie's 'No' Decision

The same day New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie announced he would not be seeking the presidency, chatter heated up about the possible candidacy of former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
 
A guest post on the conservative website “Conservatives4Palin” raised the possibility that Palin might be considering a third-party run as an independent –- and suggested that she pick businessman Herman Cain as her vice president.

The post's author, Nancy Labonete, was seeking to explain why Palin’s entry wouldn’t split votes with former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney and hand the election to President Obama. 

“A pro-business running mate bring[s] down votes for a corporate guy that is Mr. Romney,” Labonete wrote. “The black community will not abandon the first black president on election day unless the alternative is another brother in the ticket who knows –- really knows –- how to create jobs.”
 
Pondering the idea of a third-party run would also allow Palin to keep the will-she-or-won’t-she game going beyond the fast-approaching filing deadlines for the various GOP primaries.
