With less than two weeks away from the closing of the 2008 election, talk about Sarah Palin running in 2012 is already hitting the blogosphere.

In the Netherlands, Michael van der Galien writes it is obvious the Republican Party has already set plans for the next presidential election.

“But the fact of the matter is, of course, that Republicans everywhere are thinking about 2012. Names are already being floated around. Gingrich is considered an option by Novak. Sarah Palin is the darling of the (social) conservative base, and potential frontrunner for the party’s nomination in 2012. Mitt Romney too is often mentioned as likely future leader of the party that lost so many seats in Congress this month and the presidential election.

Huckabee is certainly a future option as well, of course. He was the Christian conservative’s base darling this year. Romney was his main opponent: Huckabee seemed to be OK with a John McCain victory, but he truly hated and despised Romney, the former governor of Massachusetts, who was the favorite candidate of the fiscal conservative but social moderate or even liberal faction of the party.”

The Dutch blogger then adds all citizens are anticipating the future election, despite what the mainstream media says.

“Whoever turns out to be the party’s frontrunner in 2012, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is also often mentioned as a man for the future, it is clear that Republicans are rightfully focusing on the future, wondering what man or woman can make their party victorious once again. The public talk about not thinking about 2012 is not more than that: talk. Everybody is looking towards 2012, and the most amibitious Republican politicians are positioning themselves for it.”

In Iceland, Vinay writes that Palin running in 2012 would be cheerless event, however, the problems Americans are facing cannot be fixed solely by the government.

“Whoever turns out to be the party’s frontrunner in 2012, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal is also often mentioned as a man for the future, it is clear that Republicans are rightfully focusing on the future, wondering what man or woman can make their party victorious once again. The public talk about not thinking about 2012 is not more than that: talk. Everybody is looking towards 2012, and the most amibitious Republican politicians are positioning themselves for it.”

The blogger then adds, “A sad day, but Palin 2012 is no joke.”

Finally, a Canadian expat living in Taiwan writes that he was certain Palin would return.

“I just happened to search facebook for Sarah Palin.
Anyway…there’s, like, ONE group that’s for Sarah there and a whole bunch of groups against Sarah also but what’s really fungible is that the people have made their intentions manifest there as the group that’s for Sarah is growing but also all of the groups that are against Sarah have fewer members there! It’s called Sarah Palin 2012. don’tcha know.

I knew if I were patient she’d come back to me.”
