Sarah Palin's high value
I'm getting ready to hear Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, John McCain, Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, Sarah Palin, John McCain this weekend at the Values Voter Summit.
That's if the summit is anything like the Republican National Convention. Last year, John McCain came in last of the six Republican candidates in the summit's straw poll. He received just 81 votes of the 5,776 cast.
The Family Research Council will host the summit for conservative voters with "shared values," and issues like abortion and gay marriage are bound to be common themes.
The New York Times' story out of last year's Values Voter Summit was that Christian conservatives were divided over which Republican candidate to support.
Mitt Romney won 28 percent of the votes, with Mike Huckabee trailing him close behind. The Washington Times writes about how Palin rises as the new conservative leader while others like Romney and Huckabee fade to the background.
