Palin Will Not Attend Tomorrow's Iowa Straw Poll

Today Governor Sarah Palin made an appearance at the Iowa State Fair attracting a slew of media.

Palin will skip out on tomorrow's Straw Poll, saying she will be in Iowa just for one day, “I don’t want to step on anybody’s toes so I won’t be in the state tomorrow. We’ll already be on the bus, heading out of here."

Palin laughed and didn't respond when asked if supporters should write in her name at the contest at Iowa State University. She also declined to say who her supporters should cast ballots for in her place, and said it is was still too early for her to decide who to support if she didn't throw her hat into the ring.

Of course the big question was asked about whether or not she would make a run for the White House, and although she didn't give a solid answer, Palin emphasized it would be "very grassroots" and pledged to run a different kind of campaign:
"Each campaign that I've ever run in these 20 years of elected office has been kind of unconventional, right, Todd? I've always been outspent 2:1, 5:1, 10:1. I never won any polls heading into election night but usually won the election."
