Sarah Palin will run for the White House in 2012 and conduct an unorthodox, grassroots campaign the likes of which youve never seen, according to the man who has spent the past eight months organising for her in Iowa. Speaking to me after the premiere of the film The Undefeated in Pella, Iowa, Peter Singleton, a California lawyer who has been assiduously courting Republicans across the state where the first contest of the 2012 election will be heard, said it was unthinkable she would remain on the sidelines. Shes the right person at this time, he said. If you look back at Churchills time, in 1938 Churchill was unelectable, in 1940 he was indispensable. I cant see her sitting this one out, he said. The stakes are too high. It goes back to 1940. Can you see Churchill sitting it out? Its unthinkable. Can you see George Washington in 1776 sitting it out? Unthinkable. He wanted to be back on his farm but they said we need you to be president of the republic.
