Is the Thrilla From Wasilla about to be the ... something from Scottsdale?

Sarah Palin is reportedly purchasing a home in Arizona, reports say, sparking renewed speculation that she's leaving Alaska for "away," a.k.a. the lower 48.

Two local television stations obtained video of what appear to be Todd and Sarah Palin outside the luxurious new digs. The reason for the alleged move?

Insiders have long acknowledged - and continue to do so in conversations - that Arizona would be a perfect place to base a 2012 presidential campaign.

Distance and flying time make Alaska an impossible hub for such an effort, but regardless of whether she runs, Scottsdale makes sense for other reasons.

The city offers a good launching pad from which to hit the speaking circuit and, eventually, the trail for whichever candidate she backs in the GOP primary.

Daughter Bristol Palin is also set up in nearby Maricopa, where she'll be going to school and filming her new reality show with Kyle Massey and his brother.

So will Sarah really move to AZ - and will she really get in the race? Even her staff seems unsure which way she's leaning. You tell us: Should Palin run?
