New York Post:
Sarah Palin’s isn’t in the running for a cabinet job in the Trump administration — at least as far as the senior adviser to his transition team is aware.
“I know that they’re close and that she’s been a great, loyal friend and adviser to him throughout the campaign, but I haven’t seen her as part of the cabinet mix,” Kellyanne Conway told Fox News’ “The Kelly File” on Monday night.
Conway quickly added: “But that doesn’t mean that she’s not.”
Okay I think that last bit was a CYA move on Conway's part. But if she is not hearing anything then it is unlikely that there is any talk, which is essentially what I have assumed all along.
I just don't see Palin as wanting to do anything that requires so much work on her part.
Plus of course there is the confirmation process.
However I do think that Palin expects to be compensated by Trump is some way, and I would imagine that it would come in the form of a TV gig or a role as some kind of spokesperson.
Conway also added that Palin would have Trump's ear and that he might seek out her counsel, so there's another terrifying thought to keep us awake at night.
