Intrigue: Palin Hires Chief of Staff

Posted: Feb 12, 2011 10:44 AM
Driven largely by last night's stellar performance, CPAC denizens are having the will-he-or-won't-he conversation about Mitch Daniels.  If people get wind of this, the narrative may shift -- at warp speed -- to another potential candidate:

Sarah Palin has added a veteran Republican strategist to serve as chief-of-staff for her political action committee, Sarah PAC, CNN has learned.

Michael Glassner, an attorney and longtime adviser to former Kansas senator and presidential candidate Bob Dole, has signed on to steer the former Alaska governor's political operation as she considers a possible 2012 presidential bid.

During the 2008 presidential campaign, Glassner managed vice presidential operations during John McCain's unsuccessful White House bid.

She's either running, or she is uncannily skilled at making timely moves that fuel speculation that she will.
