At this point I think Palin is reluctant to endorse Perry because his poll numbers are just too low. Earlier this year she made remarks about running that sounded like she would run if a certain someone doesn't. Certain someone is my term, not hers.
Then Perry announced. Then she said she was not going to run, and her people in the background were allowed to wear 'Perry' shirts.
Now, she is going to have to wait and see. She won't want to back a loser because she knows full well what her endorsement means.
She's waiting until after Iowa and/or NH.
I like Cain, Perry, Gingrich, and Bachman. All would be fine. She is smart to wait for the front runner. The goal is to beat the Marxist out of the White House and restore sanity to this nation.
