Sarah Palin bought a new home in North Scottsdale, Arizona. The former Alaskan governor paid around $1.695 million for an 8,000 square foot house that sits on just over 4 acres of land and comes with many features, including a home theater and a walk-in wine room. According to the Arizona Republic, the house had been put on the market in February with an asking price of $1.75 million dollars. Her elder daughter, Bristol Palin, bought a home in Phoenix last year. So did Sarah Palin buy a new home in Arizona to keep tabs on her daughter, or is she preparing for a 2012 presidential campaign? Is her real ambition the White House?

In June, a new movie about Sarah Palin, ″The Undefeated″, will premier in Iowa, then New Hampshire, South Carolina and Nevada, before going nationwide. The film is self-financed by producer Stephen K. Bannon for $1 million dollars, and many believe that it will serve as a springboard for her to launch her campaign. Palin′s political action committee, SarahPAC, will reportedly be handing out DVDs of the biographical film.

By purchasing a home in the ′lower-48′, Sarah Palin clears a major obstacle should she decide to run in 2012. Running a campaign from Wasilla, Alaska would mean considerable logistical handicaps, such as long, frequent air travel. Obviously, if she intended to run for president in 2012, Sarah Palin would establish a headquarters in the lower-48 to reduce time and logistical demands.

So did Sarah Palin buy a new home in Arizona to launch her 2012 campaign from? That is the question many people are asking. Given her name recognition, she has time to decide. The Arizona Republic reports that her new home in North Scottsdale was a bargain. But the real question is whether or not the purchase is a prelude to a bid for the White House, or is she just moving to keep an eye on her older daughter, Bristol Palin?
