Howard Dean: Sarah Palin Could Beat Obama

Howard Dean is correct. It all revolves around the economy. If the economy fails to show any significant signs of recovery in the next 18 months, the electorate will punish those in power.

The Hill reported:
Howard Dean, the former Democratic National Committee chairman who helped Democrats capture the White House in 2008, warns that Sarah Palin could defeat President Obama in 2012.

Dean says his fellow Democrats should beware of inside-the-Beltway conventional wisdom that Obama would crush Palin in a general-election contest next year.

“I think she could win,” Dean told The Hill in an interview Friday. “She wouldn’t be my first choice if I were a Republican but I think she could win.”

Dean warns the sluggish economy could have more of a political impact than many Washington strategists and pundits assume.
