She just might be baaaaaaack

Sarah Palin, the one-time vice-presidential nominee turned TV-analyst turned mega-celebrity, is

weighing a run

for the U.S. Senate in Alaska.

"I've considered it because people have requested me [to] consider it," Palin told conservative radio host Sean Hannity on his show. "I'm still waiting to see what the lineup will be. And hoping there will be some new blood, new energy. Not just kind of picking from the same old politicians in the state that come from political families."

Palin would run against Democratic incumbent Mark Begich, who’s up for re-election in 2014.

Non-partisan handicappers have the race rates as a slight tilt toward the Democrats. But that was before Palin’s trial balloon.
