Senator John McCain (R-Ariz) believes that Sarah Palin has a chance of beating President Barack Obama if she runs as the Republican presidential nominee in 2012. 
 
Speaking to Fox News about the former governor of Alaska’s chances he siad “Of course she can."
 
However he also added that he does not know if Palin, who was his own 2008 running mate in the persidential campaign, would run for office. 
 
McCain siad “I’ve never seen anyone as mercilessly and relentlessly attacked as I have seen Sarah Palin in the last couple of years. But she also inspires great passion, particularly among the Republican faithful."
 
This weekend Sarah Palin started a bus tour of the eastern United States. She will visit the historical sites that were key to the “formation, survival, and growth of the United States of America," according to  Tim Crawford, treasurer of Palin's fundraising group. “The tour will originate in Washington DC and will proceed north up the east coast. More information will follow."
 
On Sunday she kicked off the trip with a “Rolling Thunder” motorcycle ride. The group was made up of mostly US veterans from the Vietnam War. 
 
Over the weekend AP also reported on Palin’s standing in the latest poll on the GOP presidential primary. 
 
They reported “A Gallup poll of Republicans, taken before Palin announced the bus tour, showed former Massachusetts Mitt Romney favored by 17 percent. Palin followed closely at 15 percent. Ron Paul had 10 percent, Newt Gingrich 9 percent, Herman Cain 8 percent, Tim Pawlenty 6 percent, and Michele Bachmann and Jon Huntsman 5 percent each.”
