Everybody Wants Sarah Palin…. But Alaska Must Come First

Sarah Palin

The +350 favorite to be named the Republican nominee for President of the United States in 2012 (see odds here), Sarah Palin is getting so many offers following her ticket's defeat, she doesn't quite know which way to turn.

Agents from the William Morris Agency and elsewhere, have come knocking. There even has been an offer to host a TV show.

"Tomorrow, Governor Palin could do an interview with any news media on the planet," said her spokesman, Bill McAllister. "Tomorrow, she could probably sign any one of a dozen book deals. She could start talking to people about a documentary or a movie on her life. That's the level we are at here."

"Barbara Walters called me. George Stephanopoulos called me," McAllister said. "I've had multiple conversations with producers for Oprah, Letterman, Leno and 'The Daily Show.'"

Palin has implied she will be making a run for President in 2012 but she'll need to maintain her celebrity status until that time while ensuring she does not become a victim of "overexposure".

"She has to deal with the perception that she bobbled her debut," said Claremont McKenna College political scientist John Pitney. "She needs to stay home for a while. If she wants a future in national politics, her No. 1 job is doing a good job as governor."

Just this past week, shortly after conducting a string of national TV interviews and skipping a state education conference, she was scolded by the Anchorage Daily News. "There are ... low graduation rates, plummeting North Slope oil prices, proposals to build alternative energy projects, the gas pipeline," the paper said in an editorial. "It's time for the governor to refocus on Alaska's needs."
