Sarah Palin has nothing to lose by jumping into the race – rather it is a win-win-win for her.

1.) By getting in the race there is the chance, though remote that she gets the nomination.

2.) If she does not get the nomination then she has months worth of intensive public relations work that she can then use toward promoting her book and speaking circuit.

3.) Finally, by getting in she raises her formal political profile and can position herself for a full out run in 2016.

Finally, one thing to expect with America’s top Pink Elephant is expect the unexpected.
