Iowa Political Alert: Is Sarah Palin front-runner in Iowa in 2012?

Excerpted from this post at Iowa Political Alert

While being careful to tell us up front that he thinks the premise of
the question is more than a bit shaky, Republican David Oman, a key
figure in the last two GOP gubernatorial administrations in Iowa, says
Sarah Palin has the makings of a presidential front-runner in the Iowa
caucuses in 2012. "The retail nature of caucus politics would play to
one of Governor Palin's strength - an energetic personality," he says.
There is speculation that the Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice
presidential candidate - who distanced herself from McCain in some
areas - is well-positioned for Iowa in 2012. Whether she would make a
competent president is a different thing altogether - and a seriously
debatable point in 2008.
