Sarah Palin, citing family considerations, opts out of the 2012 presidential race. Her election-season aim, she said Wednesday, is to help elect other 'true public servants' to office – and she has shown she can.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie decided not to run for president – a decision that appears to solidify the Republican field. But in whose favor? Candidates are now jockeying for position.

Using the show's extraordinary exposure – this year's premiere netted 18.6 million viewers, nearly six times the highest ratings that DWTS contestant Nancy Grace ever got on her eponymous HLN show and more than double what DWTS competitor and US soccer goalie Hope Solo got in the Women’s World Cup final this summer – these five contestants have seen their careers take off.
