Conservative columnist Charles Krauthammer argued she has as much of a chance of a second act as Joe Biden managed after being “laughed out of the race” in 1988 amid a plagiarism scandal.

However, he added, “Her act as a celebrity is done. Her act as a political figure is possible – if she applies herself.”…

Steve Bannon, the filmmaker and Breitbart News chairman who made a movie about Palin called “Undefeated” that debuted in Iowa, disagreed with the notion that she has lost any standing.

“I don’t think her standing’s ever wavered,” he said. “People hang on her words … I think she’s thinking a lot of things and I’m sure she has a lot of plans and I think there are going to be initiatives.”

“I’m sure she’s doing this for a reason, and I’m sure she’s going to be quite a force in 2014,” he added.
