Here are the interesting parts from a report in the New York Times about the event.

Arriving here late Tuesday afternoon with her husband, Todd, Ms. Palin said she was still making up her mind.

“A lot goes into such a life-changing, relatively earth-shattering type of decision,” she said as she entered the Pella Opera House for the 5 p.m. screening of the film, to be followed by a cookout for 1,000. “Still thinking about it.”


Peter Singleton, a self-styled Palin volunteer who has spent seven months traveling in Iowa to build support for her, said an army of workers would materialize if she gave the word.

“She has a lot more support in this state than people have any idea,” said Mr. Singleton, who said he did not work officially for Ms. Palin. “The race is wide open right now.”


Many Republicans here said their dream candidate for 2012 would have been Mike Huckabee, who won the 2008 Iowa caucuses with the strong support of evangelical Christians but who is not running this time. Absent Mr. Huckabee, residents said they would like to see Ms. Palin enter the race.

“I just came from Rotary,” said Joe Becker, the owner of Ulrich’s Meat Market, which ships bologna and beef jerky around the country. “Huckabee supporters would like to see Sarah run.”


Arriving here, Ms. Palin said, “I’m very thankful that someone would bother to go to these efforts to make a documentary about the record of my team in Alaska.”
