Sarah Palin -- Not running, but still in the race

Sarah Palin supporters have to be a little disappointed today. Palin announced yesterday that she won't be seeking the Republican nomination for president. In fact, "Mamma Grizzly" said she's a little sad herself about the decision. She told Fox News she went back and forth whether to run, but ultimately saying no was "the right decision."

A lot people who know Palin really aren't surprised, but the director of the biopic "The Undefeated," which profiles Palin, said the 2012 presidential campaign will certainly be less interesting without her.

But even though she's not running, we all know Palin will still be part of the race. People are already chomping at the bit to find out who she will be backing. We've watched her all summer make high-profile speeches in battleground states, all leading to her decision not to run. And when she decides who to support, Palin’s buses will no doubt be firing back up and hitting the road.
