In Iowa, Palin Skips the Candidate Routine:DES MOINES – It started with a joke about running for president. When Sarah Palin took the stage here on Friday night, opened his speech by describing how he had spent a little free time in Iowa.

She tied their running shoes, put on a hat and prepared to go for a jog in the afternoon. She said her husband, Todd, cautioned against go out though that was a sunny day in glory.

“Todd said:” I guarantee that if someone sees you in tennis shoes, the title will be in Vanity Fair. They will say, Palin in Iowa, decides to run ‘, “Palin said, drawing laughter and applause from a crowd of Republicans interested in their political intentions.

It was simply a way for Ms. Palin to deal with the proverbial bull in the room. However, if you really had taken a decision to seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2012, she could have spent his afternoon here a little different.

Republicans in Iowa, as in many places these days, believe they are on the cusp of resurgence. The party is hoping to regain the governor’s office, that 12 years ago Democrats won for the first time in a generation.

It is the time when candidates – and their events – they are everywhere, but Mrs. Palin spent no time with them. She did not attend a meeting or an impromptu rally. The Republicans just have a private time when they had to wait in line for photos.

When politicians sometimes accept invitations party discourse, especially outlets such as the annual dinner of Ronald Reagan, they often do a series of events between racks. It is a mutually beneficial agreement. But Mrs. Palin refused to make any further appearance. Instead, he left to run.

The reception Ms. Palin received late on Friday was enthusiastic and polite. She was received and dismissed with standing ovations. But she carried the crowd with her throughout the speech of 33 minutes.

She issued what he called a “quick woodshed time,” criticizing Karl Rove and other GOP leaders did not meet behind some of the newest crop of part of the nominees, suggesting that some of the candidates could not be elected in November .

“Remember, the attitudes are contagious, so be sure to catch his worth,” said Palin, who speak more than applause. He added: “We can not blow, a Republican, but we will not wait for political playbook that was delivered to us from the top of the political elites. We will not do that.”

the arrival here of Palin came at the end of one of its most successful weeks of the season in mid-term election. She supports the candidacy of Christine O’Donnell at Delaware, which stunned the Republican establishment when he won the Senate primary on Tuesday.

Palin candidates in the race for Senate New Hampshire, Kelly Ayotte, he also won.

But the result in Delaware led to much criticism, particularly from Mr. Rove, who criticized Ms. O’Donnell for “a lot of nutty things he has been saying” and said he could not win a general election.

Palin disagreed. After leaving the stage, she said, “I get to Delaware and soon start knocking on doors.”

Dinner on Friday, which attracted 1,500 people, was the first major appearance of Palin here since the end of the 2008 presidential race.

The Iowa Republican Party issued a standing invitation to Ms. Palin visit the state more than a year ago. (At the time of the dinner last year, she had not responded, and honors were talking about Gov. Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota.) When she accepted this year, speculation immediately broke out he was considering a bid for the presidency.

The Des Moines Register welcomed Ms. Palin to the city by splashing a large photo illustration on the front page of the cowboy dress and an “I? IA” T-shirt.

But because of the mystery surrounding his presidential aspirations – or lack thereof – The headline read: “Palin’s visit to Iowa keeps fans guessing.”

On Friday, said he had no timeline for making a decision about running for president. He added with a smile: “I know you can make a big difference in the United States without even a title.”

With her husband beside her, while she stayed to sign autographs and pose for photos, he said, “I want to Iowa soon.”

As the crowd of fans began to press closer, after passing around six minutes shaking hands, she said, “OK, guys, I have to board a plane.”

She ducked behind a blue wall and the long night was over.
