LOS ANGELES — As Sarah Palin begins a book tour Tuesday in Phoenix that will take her to the early presidential voting states of Iowa and South Carolina, the former Alaska governor seems to have set her sights set on something grander than mere wealth and fame.
After all, in two short years, she has become a political star, a publishing star and now a television star. So what's left to conquer?
Well, maybe the White House.
In a rare newspaper interview, Palin confirmed to The New York Times Magazine that she is discussing with her family whether she should run for president. During a segment on the special "Barbara Walters' 10 Most Fascinating People," scheduled to air Dec. 9, she told Walters she believes she can beat President Barack Obama.
Which leaves the political world engaged in one of its favorite sports: Guessing what Sarah Palin will do next.
