Former George W. Bush political adviser Karl Rove said Sunday that the political winds will change quite a bit, but that 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, Sarah Palin, should get ready now, if she is planning for president to run in 2012.
"This is her year to get ready for the hot spotlight that will fall on her…I don’t know if she wants to, she certainly can, she did very well in the 63 days she was on the national stage," Rove said on NBC's "Meet the Press."
On the fate of the tea party movement, Rove said that a deep-pocketed figure like Ross Perot would be necessary to make the party a real threat in 2012. But the movement has energized the left, right and independents to focus on government spending.
"They are going to exact their revenge this fall and it’s not going to be pretty for Democrats."
I would say Sarah Palin’s schedule indicates she has already started.
