Sarah Palin has hired longtime Republican strategist Michael Glassner as chief of staff for SarahPAC. Politicos say this is the strongest signal yet that Mama Grizzly plans to run for president. After all, why else would an unemployed former reality show star need someone like Glassner?
Michael Glassner, who first worked with Ms. Palin during her 2008 vice presidential campaign, will become the top political adviser to Ms. Palin and will coordinate her political activities through her political action committee, SarahPAC. “We are very grateful that he is bringing his expertise to our enterprise,” Tim Crawford, the treasurer of SarahPAC, said in an interview on Saturday. He confirmed that Ms. Palin has hired Mr. Glassner, which was first reported Friday evening by CNN.
