Sarah Palin

Though Mama Grizzly hasn't entered the Republican race, she has embarked on an ambitious bus tour covering most of the Northeast and New England. Palin's daughter, Bristol, remarked on Tuesday that she already knows whether her mother will jump into the race.

Palin's reputation precedes her, as the pollsters say she is the most recognizable Republican of this group.

Palin got her start in 1992 as a Wasilla, Ala. city council member. Palin served two three-year terms as mayor of Wasilla between 1996 and 2002, then won the Alaska governorship in 2006. She resigned in July 2009 and did not complete her term.

Palin was the Republican vice-presidential nominee alongside John McCain (R., Ariz.) in 2008. She is a former Miss Alaska second runner-up, and received a bachelor's degree in communications at the University of Idaho in 1986.

Palin has not raised money, as she has yet to announce intentions to run for the Republican nomination.
