Poll: Palin leads GOP presidential contenders

The Quinnipiac University poll shows that while /*Sarah Palin*/ tops the list of Republican choices, /*Mitt Romney*/ and /*Mike Huckabee*/ are close contenders.

Former First Lady /*Barbara Bush*/ doesn't seem keen on Palin's possible candidacy.

In an interview on CNN's "Larry King Live," Barbara Bush talked about meeting her.

"I sat next to her once, I thought she was beautiful, and I think she's very happy in Alaska and I hope she'll stay there," said Barbara Bush.

Palin hasn't announced her 2012 plans. She's about to start a publicity tour for her new book that's coming out this week.
