The prevailing opinion among the punditariat these days seems to be that Sarah Palin’s career as a presidential contender is pretty well over.
But USA Today columnist Don Campbell isn’t so sure. In fact, he sees some remarkable parallels between Palin’s current course and that taken by Ronald Reagan during his path to the White House. His advice for Palin: Do what Reagan did — be patient, study hard, and surround yourself with wise and capable advisers.
There’s virtue in being an outsider — Reagan proved that — but not in being uninformed. If she’s serious, she’ll methodically embrace a long-term strategy based on discipline and self-control.
Campbell’s prediction: Look for a serious Palin run in 2016.
