Does Gingrich have inside track on Palin endorsement?

“While [Sarah] Palin has characteristically kept her cards close to her chest, advisers suggest that the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee is likely to endorse before someone emerges as the inevitable nominee — and that Newt Gingrich appears to be best-positioned to secure her support,” Scott Conroy, who wrote a book on Palin and remains as connected to her inner circle (to the extent she has one) as any DC reporter, writes for Real Clear Politics today. “‘They speak very favorably of Newt and what they see as his credentials as compared to Perry and Romney,’ one member of Palin’s inner circle said [in reference to Sarah and Todd] … Gingrich has been particularly effusive in expressing his admiration for Palin over the last few months, and she has returned the favor by heaping praise on the former House speaker… Aides emphasized that while Gingrich currently appears to be the front-runner for Palin’s endorsement, her thinking could change.”
