Tony Lee: Barack Obama vs. Sarah Palin

Via Tony Lee at Human Events:

It is a title fight many want to see in 2012.  It would be the city-dwelling intellectual against an exurban, reform-minded populist from the frontier.  It would be bold liberalism squaring off against bold conservatism.  It would be the political equivalent of Manny Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather.

Palin has been a thorn in the side of the Obama administration.  She has attacked him and proposed substantive policy proposals that would be better solutions than Obama’s in nearly every arena.

She has presciently predicted the problems with quantitative easing—inflation and rising food and commodity prices—that lower the standard of living of Americans.

For one day, at least, this captivating general election matchup was teased, when Obama and Palin were both in Iowa yesterday.  Neither mentioned the other or took on the other in any way.  But both had to know of each other’s presence in a swing state that propelled Obama to the nomination in 2008, and if she decides to enter, could have a similar role in legitimizing and kicking off Palin’s march to the nomination.
