Palin's will-she-or-won't-she tease over presidential plans continues

Depending on who in her family is talking, Sarah Palin finally might have decided whether to run for president.

Palin maintained her will-she-or-won't-she tease Tuesday as she visited Iowa, the hotbed of presidential campaigning that will hold precinct caucuses next winter on the Republican presidential nomination.

Palin and her husband, Todd, attended the premiere of a new movie about her, "The Undefeated," at a historic theater in Pella, a town of about 10,000 southeast of Des Moines. Afterward, they attended a cookout hosted by the movie's producers for town folk.

As she traveled to Iowa -- her first visit there this year -- her eldest daughter told Fox News on Tuesday that her mother has made up her mind about running and "definitely knows." But Bristol Palin said, her mother is keeping the decision private for now.

Tuesday evening, as she arrived in Pella, the former Alaska governor brushed aside the statement. "I'm still contemplating," she said, calling it a potential life-changing decision. She said she texted her daughter after hearing about the television appearance to ask her what she had said. Palin said her daughter assured her it was another case of the media taking things out of context.

While other candidates are starting to build statewide campaigns, Palin hasn't asked anyone here to work for her.

She does have fans who are reaching out to activists and organizers, asking them to remain available just in case. They say they have not talked to her about their efforts.
