Scott Conroy of Real Clear Politics broke the news just a few days ago that Governor Palin is keynoting a tea party rally in Iowa on September 3rd. Immediately, speculations began to fly. Will this be the day she announces her 2012 run for the presidency? Good question. It is, after all, three years to the date of her stellar 2008 RNC speech.
Personally, I don't think she will announce on any date that connects her to the McCain campaign. Instead, I'm hopeful that she'll announce sooner. Of course, that's just speculation on my part. As most people know, no one is really certain what Governor Palin will do. Or more accurately, as they say in Alaska, "Only God and Todd know. Only God and Todd." Governor Palin is nothing if not unconventional, which is just one reason we respect her so vehemently. She is the antithesis of politics-as-usual. The good news is we'll all know soon enough.
CBS News conducted an interview with Scott Conroy in which he discussed the likelihood of the Governor entering the race. Enjoy:
