The Ticket: Palin and Huckabee sent aides to RNC meeting on 2012

The media's Sarah Palin rumor of the day
From Holly Bailey at Yahoo's The Ticket blog:
Sarah Palin and Mike Huckabee have been cagey about whether they'll run for president in 2012. But the pair still sent political aides to a meeting at the Republican National Committee this week about party logistics headed into next year's presidential campaign

According to Politico's Jonathan Martin, newly elected RNC chief Reince Priebus convened the meeting, which included staffers from the potential Palin and Huckabee campaigns, as well as aides representing all-but-declared candidates Tim Pawlenty and Mitt Romney. Notably, Mitch Daniels, who said last week that Indiana's budget crisis might curtail his 2012 efforts, didn't send anyone to the meeting.
Is it true? Considering that it comes from fact-challenged Politico, who knows? Nevertheless, this should add plenty of fuel to keep the ol' media speculation motor spinning...
