Almost as soon as the polls closed on Tuesday--with some key races still not yet decided--the debate had already shifted from the 2010 midterm campaigns to the 2012 presidential election. Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is being eyed as a strong possible contender. Observers say she has come a long way since she was tapped by John McCain as his vice presidential nominee in 2008--she was a star of the Republican Party throughout the 2010 campaign and helped pave the way for many candidates through her endorsements and public appearances. Along the way, and as a Fox News contributor, she raised her own profile and sparked discussions about her presidential ambitions. Some observers within the GOP question whether she can really go up against President Obama, but others have voiced their support for a presidential run. "She's got a hell of a lot more qualifications than Barack Obama had when he ran for president," former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani said on ABC's The View on Wednesday. "Let her run."
