Endorsing a long-time incumbent would rather undermine Palin's credibility as an "outsider".

While there were also some personal issues at play there, Palin wasn't feminist enough to endorse Murkowski over Miller.

Though not necessarily tea partiers, neither Norton nor Ayotte could be considered Moderate Heroes/ "RINOs" in the way that Snowe can and has been. Ayotte was still a pro-life conservative, and she used tea party language in railing against taxes and spending.

No, not only it wouldn't make sense for her ideologically, but it could even backfire considering Maine is a blue State where Palin shouldn't be extremely popular.

Well, that's what they said about O'Donnell.Tongue

...and indeed she lost. Tongue Though I think in this case Palin was the last of her problems, to be fair.

Maine is not Delaware. It is a state that has strong populist independent anti-establishment roots.
