Sarah Palin Documentary Setting Stage For 2012 Presidential Campaign?

JUNEAU, Alaska - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has authorized a feature-length film about her rise, added staff and recently said she has "that fire in the belly" for a presidential bid – all steps that fuel speculation she's inching toward a White House run.

Her supporters are putting together a campaign-in-waiting in Iowa, the lead-off nominating caucus, in the hopes the Republicans' 2008 vice presidential nominee decides to join the race.

There are even reports she bought a home in Arizona, not far from her daughter's, which aides have suggested could be a campaign headquarters if she goes forward.

Clearly Palin will be part of the conversation on Republican presidential contenders, but it's not certain she wants to be a candidate. With near-universal name recognition, loyal supporters and nearly unrivaled fundraising potential, Palin remains the biggest unknown in the presidential field and could wait longer than most to answer that question.

Palin is weighing her family's privacy against advice from a growing circle of political advisers. She rehired two former aides to help plan her events, suggesting she is ready to travel extensively again, and shuffled other advisers as she steps up her public appearances.

"I want to make sure that we have a candidate out there with tea party principles," she said recently.

That doesn't mean she's rushing to be that person.

Although Palin has made no obvious moves on her own behalf in early nominating states, California lawyer Peter Singleton has been meeting with county GOP organizations in Iowa since last winter. Working with Singleton, a group of Palin supporters has been building an independent, statewide organization this year at the ready should Palin decide to run.

"I don't know where Sarah's mind is, I don't think anyone knows that," said Meg Stapleton, who served as Palin's spokeswoman in the governor's office and after. "I think at this point in time, it's only within her heart and her mind and she's keeping it that way." >>>CLICK HERE TO READ MORE FROM HUFFINGTONPOST.COM
