NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Sarah Palin is predicting a good year for conservative candidates for public office, saying the policies of President Barack Obama and Democratic leaders in Congress will be short-lived.

The 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee told the national "tea party" convention in Saturday that a string of recent Republican victories at the polls, including Scott Brown's longshot win in last month's special Senate election in Massachusetts, bodes well for conservative candidates this year.

She told the convention in Tennessee that if there's hope for the tea party movement in Massachusetts, there's hope everywhere.

The Obama administration has repeatedly argued that the nation's financial system was on the verge of collapse when Obama took office last year, and is now in the early stages of recovery.
