By Wolf Blitzer, CNN

BLITZER’S BLOG: The Palin guessing game

By CNN's Wolf Blitzer

(CNN) - Sarah Palin has been delivering campaign-style speeches in recent days – still leaving open whether she will actually run for the Republican presidential nomination. For now, she seems to want the best of all worlds: She teases a presidential run while still maintaining her millions of dollars in income from her paid speeches, books, reality TV shows and Fox News. She no doubt also loves all the attention.

In her latest speech before the Tea Party Express in New Hampshire, she certainly hit all the major points the tea party movement wants to hear: smaller government, lower taxes, reduced federal regulations. But she spoke only in generalities without getting into any specifics as to how she would achieve those objectives. I heard a lot of politically popular clichés.
