Palin Drafted for President

The Obamas haven't spent two months in their new digs but already the opposition is gearing up for a rematch. A small political group in Connecticut claims to have launched the first donation-collecting effort to draft Sarah Palin to run for president in 2012. The FEC has confirmed the "2012 Draft Sarah Committee" is the first to do so, founder Paul Streitz told the Associated Press. Funds raised--$3,000 so far--will be used for "grassroots organizing." Palin has not expressed explicit interest in running for president, though she has established a PAC, seen as a way of maintaining her visibility.
