Amidst the never ending rumors, speculations, and posturing involved in the 2016 Presidential race, I am registering my pick right now. No, I am not siding with Rand Paul, Marco Rubio, Scott Walker, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Paul Ryan, or Ted Cruz.
Everybody knows that Governor Sarah Palin is the primary reason why I am still working in politics when I should have retired long ago to pursue my real interests elsewhere. Should she run for President, I would support her in principle and as a measure of gratitude for the priceless experiences and friendships I have made and the real impact I have made in advancing the women’s movement since 2009. This is all due to my continued involvement in politics after being inspired by Governor Palin to stay persistent in a game in which I have grown disillusioned and disinterested. Yet, I think her window of opportunity to run for President has passed.
That said, I said it here and I said it first. For the Republican Presidential ticket in 2016, I want to see U.S. Senator Kelly Ayotte and U.S. Representative Marsha Blackburn carrying the banner for free markets and free people. Let’s make it happen.
