Karl Rove predicted again that Sarah Palin will run for president—and that she'll announce soon. The GOP strategist pointed to upcoming Palin events in Iowa and a new campaign-styled video as strong indications that the former Alaska governor will jump in. But she's got to speak up quickly, he warned, and stop teasing her public, Politico reports.

“If she doesn’t get in next week, I think people are going to basically say, ‘She’s not in, she won’t be in and if she gets in, I’m not going to be for her,’” Rove said on Fox News Sunday. “You can only tease so many times in the political process and I think she’s getting to the end of that.” (More Karl Rove stories.)
