Is Palin Gearing Up?

If Sarah Palin "has made any final, official decision to run, she's kept it from her inner circle of advisers," Shushannah Walshe reports. "But lately, alongside the personal tweets that have been a primary means of communicating with the outside world in recent months, Team Palin has begun issuing press releases. The smoke signals indicate her staff has begun working in earnest on a White House run."

Said one former aide: "No one has been told directly, but staffers are working under the assumption that she's running. It has become very apparent to everyone on her staff that she is preparing to run for president. The staff is now working. They are writing speeches, preparing talking points, picking congressmen to endorse all under the umbrella of what you would do two years out before running for president and that's their understanding. It's a 2012 ball game, and they should plan on that basis."
