A Hardball panel discusses her future and her recent appears at the Republican Governors Association convention…

As usual, Pat Buchanan loves Palin, but the other Republican on the panel isn’t too keen to give her the same praise.

And frankly, I think many in the GOP are embarrassed by her performance on the trail. Especially guys like Romney, Crist, Pawlenty and Huckabee…all of whom are current or former Governors and have their eyes on 2012.

So between the rumors about her not knowing stuff about basic world geography and then her odd appearance at the RGA convention, this could be a pretty clear signal that she’s not going to be welcome in the lower 48 anytime soon.

It’s as if the GOP is saying “Go prove yourself and we’ll talk in 2016.”

What do you think?

Politics Will The GOP Back Palin?
