Before she was a politician, Sarah Palin was a TV news anchor. And now, she is back to her old digs.

The former governor of Alaska and one-time Republican vice presidential nominee signed a deal yesterday to join the Fox News Channel as a commentator and political analyst. The deal also says Palin will host episodes of Fox’s “Real American Stories” series, which features inspirational tales about Americans.

Adored by America’s right wing and reviled by those on the left, Palin has been a polarizing political figure ever since her failed vice presidential run with Ariz. Senator John McCain in 2008. In 2009, she stepped down 17 months early from her position as governor and late released a best-selling book titled “Going Rogue.”

News of her deal with Fox has reignited speculation about what her political future might hold, if anything. She is widely considered to be a possible contender to run against U.S. President Barack Obama in 2012.
