Turn your clocks back to 2009: Sarah Palin’s presidential ambitions are about to become the centerpiece of 2012 chatter once again.
RealClearPolitics’ Scott Conroy — who broke the news this week of the upcoming and extremely favorable documentary about Palin — reports that Palin is about to hit the national stage hard.Palin will kick off a national bus tour in D.C. Sunday, Conroy reports. The occasion? Rolling Thunder, the annual motorcycle rally best known for its abundance of POW/MIA flags.
No word yet on whether the tour will include a presidential announcement. But either way, expect the entire Republican presidential discussion to follow Palin’s bus.
Details were still being hammered out on Thursday, but sources indicated to RCP that the bus tour is expected to last several weeks and will be divided into separate geographical stretches for logistical reasons.
