Palin To Announce She Would Be A Candidate At Brokered Convention In "Game Changer" Bolling Appearance Tonight?

Eric Bolling Tweeted his guest on his final show tonight would be Sarah Palin who would, in her fifteen minute segment make a "game changer" announcement. 

An announcement of that significance would be expected to be wither an endorsement of a candidate for a particular primary, a formal endorsement of a candidate for the nomination, a statement that she will not endorse anyone or, as I suspect, something relating to her own position.

If the latter that could well mean that if there were a brokered convention in Tampa and her name was put in nomination, would she accept that happening and, if nominated would run of course.

If Palin makes that statement then in effect she is declaring her candidacy as an alternative to the current candidates and that is indeed a "game changer."

What that would indicate to supporters of Palin is that they should, from now on, vote in the primary for which ever candidate will keep Romney from gaining a majority  of delegates so there is a brokered convention. 

For example, the should vote for Santorum in Michigan, Gingrich in Indiana and Georgia, and Ron Paul in Virginia.

If over time one of the three non-Romney's starting looking like they might gain the majority then a strategic vote for Romney where required would be in order. 

In the video below of Palin's surprise appearance on "The Five" a strong hint that the above scenario is in play is given. Alternatively Palin may have indicated she would be available as a VP pick or would not accept a draft under any circumstances-we shall see, but if I were a betting person I would put a few dollars on her being open to being drafted under the right circumstances.

If this partial transcript is the sum of the "Game Changer" announcement then in effect,since she did not rule out being available for a draft,she has indeed ruled herself in."I would do whatever I could to help is of course ambivalent, but again, it is not a Shermanesque "No"

"I mean nobody is quite there yet. So I think that months from now, if that's the case, then, you know, all bets are off as to who it will be willing to offer themselves up in the name of service to their country. I would -- I would do whatever I could to help"
