Sarah Palin has signed a multi-year TV deal with FOX News to be a contributor. But this might make it very difficult for her to run for president in 2012. It is also far short from her hopes to host her own TV show as well. However, Palin will have a few occasional specials on the network, though.
So far it hasn't been disclosed just how much the network will pay her. But it does give the former Alaska governor enough free time for other projects. But the multi-year contract would certainly interfere with any schedule to build an effective organization for any 2012 presidential run according to some political analysts. Overall, the deal might make fans of the former governor happy to see more of her, but it is probably a strong signal that she's not running for president in 2012.
