That would be great if they ran her: Republican men, and most Republican women are not going to vote for a woman. It's just not in their worldview to have a woman in charge, no matter how competent she is. Hell, they voted for Trump, the "successful businessman" who bankrupted two casinos. That shows you what they think of competence.

....did you miss Sarah Palin? Or the Thatcher Prime Ministership in the UK?

I think you may be surprised. smile She will probably be at a bit of a disadvantage because of that, but, that will be in the Primary, not the General.

For populism of all sides, a demonstrated ability to competently make trade-offs is a detriment, not a selling point.

Populists of all sides are surplus to requirements.

I suspect very few Republicans voted for Thatcher. And besides, that was in the UK, where they have had a woman as the head of government for decades.

Republicans accepted Palin as VP, because they don't think the VP actually does anything. In her case, they probably thought she would fetch McCain a cold one while he watched football, which she seems to be quite competent at. I don't think you can draw any conclusions for her mostly scandalous term as Alaska's Governor. Alaskans don't really want their Governor to do much but send the oil checks.
