The Open Letter to Sarah Palin at Conservative Corner is a good read on where Palin should do should she wish to pursue the presidency in 2012.
It doesn't address Senate seats, Governor's chairs or anything, but the author makes smart points about staying on message. While Palin isn't Reagan, the comparison works because both were people of conviction and both were ridiculed for lack of experience and viciously attacked when they first appeared on the national scene.
