Her "One Nation" bus tour as stopped and started and she has taken her measure of shots against the White House, but the time is getting near for Sarah Palin's self-imposed clock to decide if she'll be running for president in 2012, according to a report in the Los Angeles Times.

palin, clock, ticking, runLast month, the former Alaska governor said if she is to run in 2012, she will need to decide by the end of September. Charlie Black who was the senior advisor for the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008 tells the Times Palin "obviously has total name identification and still has a net positive image with the Republican base."

Black also says Palin, who made stops today in Iowa, "has proven her ability to raise money. The necessary tools are there." However, the Times points out polls are suggesting that Palin's sitting on the fence for so long may have had a negative impact on voters who have seen the campaigns of Texas Governor Rick Perry and Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann take center stage.

Bachmann made a huge impact in the last Republican debate and she captured the recent Iowa Straw Poll. Perry is about to make his first debate splash next week when the GOP presidential hopefuls debate at the Reagan Library in California. Perry has already passed former Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney in the polls.

Sara Fagen who was the politcal director for President George W. Bush says Palin "is still a star" and Fagen believes "there is room for someone else" in the GOP sweepstakes.
