Forecasting The Republican National Convention: Who Fills Sarah Palin's Shoes?

HuffingtonPost.com | Jason Linkins | Posted 09.16.2012 | Politics

Michael Tomasky this week reflected on the not-yet-invited-to-the-convention Sarah Palin, and wonders why Romney hasn't extended the invitation to the former governor of Alaska. It's interesting to note that Tomasky's operating under the assumption that the only people who can fill a space that might otherwise be occupied by Sarah Palin are those who ran against Romney for the GOP nomination. There's no doubt that Palin, who's already off to a good start as a 2012 endorser, has kept her brand in better shape than those whom Romney defeated during his march through the primary calendar. But it actually hadn't occurred to me that any of the vanquished candidates would provide a prime-time presence at the convention anyway.
