After months, even years of speculation, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is not running for President in 2012 according to the National Journal:

Putting to rest more than three years of speculation about whether she would seek the 2012 Republican presidential nomination, the 2008 vice presidential runner-up announced Wednesday in a letter to supporters that she will not join this cycle’s presidential cast.

"After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States," she wrote in the letter, obtained by ABC News. "As always, my family comes first and obviously Todd and I put great consideration into family life before making this decision."
