Miller came close in '10. Seems pretty strong on the issues. I'll have to wait and see if Palin jumps into this before making a decision. AK is definitely a Senate seat that can be flipped with the right candidate. I think Miller or Palin can do the job.

Miller is fantastic but he made some huge blunders last time. He lost to a write in. Probably would be better to have Palin run.

My Alaska dream would be getting him to win against the D, and then having Palin knock out Murkowski.
