It's haven't heard much talk in the liberal blogosphere about a potential Palin candidacy. But when I do find leftists who are aware of the possibility, they all seem to have a similar reaction: fear.
My latest find was this comment on a recent Daily Kos post (bolding added):
Sarah Palin would be by far be the most attractive VP for McCain (literally and figuartively). That's probably the toughest ticket we could face (assuming Lieberman is telling the truth when he says he won't run with McCain). But I think most likely, McCain will choose someone under age 50 to off-set concerns about his age and make him seem less like an insider, so Tim Pawlenty or John Thune could also be possible choices.
I don't think McCain is stupid enough to choose Huckabee (The Republican base would explode) or Rice (Do you really want THAT strong of a connection to the Bush administration?).

As cocky as the Democrats have been about their 2008 chances, I think it's fair to say that you are on to something big when you can identify a candidate who truly scares them.
Ladies and gentlemen, we have found that candidate and her name is Sarah Palin!
