I received the following e-mail (below this paragraph) today from Adam Brickley, who started the Draft Sarah Palin Movement on his blog: http://palinforvp.blogspot.com/ To the amazement of some, Gov. Palin is a serious candidate for the vice-presidential nod. Increasingly, important Republican and conservative figures (such as Fred Barnes's "The Most Popular Governor" and Patrick Ruffini's "The GOP's North Star") are looking at Sarah as a future President of the United States. I urge all of Sarah's supporters to contact friends and associates on their e-mail lists to get them to sign the petition. They can do so anonymously if they wish. If people who back Sarah will devote a little time to this effort, it could be a classic case of viral marketing -- with Sarah's candidacy taking off like a rocket. More about it later. This petition drive will give everyone involved a real chance to have a major say in America's future. The drive will go on throughout the month of October. Please support this important grass-roots effort.

For friends and associates who are not very familiar with Sarah's character and record, please include links to Fred Barnes's Weekly Standard piece and Patrick Ruffini's Townhall essay.

Dear Palin supporters,

As the first of several new campaigns that I will be introducing in coming weeks, a "Draft Palin for VP" petion has been started online at ipetitions.com.

In the coming days, I will be sending a chain letter out in order to generate signatures. However, I wanted to offer the mailing list the chance to place the very first signatures. iPetitions does offer you the option of signing anonymously (though anonymous signers still need to provide a nma and email), and it has been used by large draft movements in the past, most notably the Democratic campaign to draft Mark Warner for President last year. You can read their privacy policy here.

The most recent Gallup poll confirms Rudy’s grassroot appeal across all regions of the country, among all types of voters, and across all segments of the population. Rudy leads nationally with 30 percent of the vote, followed by Fred Thompson at 22 percent. Giuliani leads the field among both moderate Republicans and conservative Republicans and leads in almost every geographic region of the country (West, Midwest, Northeast) and ties Fred Thompson in the South. Rudy also leads among both Protestants and Catholics and among every church-going group: from those who attend church on a regular basis all the way to those who do not attend church at all.
