Karl Rove: Sarah Palin Will Run For President (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Sarah Palin has yet to announce her 2012 presidential plans. Either way, one prominent conservative sees the former Alaska governor entering the presidential race.

Former George W. Bush advisor Karl Rove appeared on Fox News Saturday morning, voicing his views that Palin will throw her hat into the 2012 ring. Rove cited her schedule as a key factor, noting that it looks more like that of a 'candidate' than a 'celebrity'.

The Washington Examiner highlights that schedule theory. Palin is set to appear in Iowa on September 3, serving as the keynote speaker at the Tea Party of America's "Restoring America" event.

"This is her last chance," Rove said on the broadcast. "She either gets in or gets out after this visit next week. I think she gets in."

Rove's forecast comes one day after Palin released a new video highlighting her Iowa travels. Entitled "Iowa Passion," the ex-Vice Presidential candidate profiles Iowans who explain why she is "a normal person just like every one of us."
