Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin is still keeping mum about her future plans, but there's one much-discussed option that's open to her, and her team is reportedly looking into it.

Inside Radio reports that "Palin representatives have been quietly testing the waters to see how much interest radio syndicators have for her," though it adds that they're "not exactly shopping" her. (Hat-tip to GOP 12.)


Assuming Palin wants a future in national politics -- by no means a solid assumption, though she has appeared to be leaning that way -- a radio show could be a mixed blessing. It would keep her in touch with a devoted base, and keep her name in the news. But there's a lot of airtime to fill in a regular radio show, and a lot of ad-libbing: That could end up being a godsend for opposition researchers.
