Sarah Palin: On the Edge ... of Glory?

Are you ready to read about a possible presidential candidate stumping for her favorite health club? Ready or not, we give you Sarah Palin.

The former Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate appears on the cover of the latest issue of Newsweek wearing a sweatshirt that has an Edge Fitness logo emblazoned on the front. Edge Fitness, for those of you who don't know, which may be all of you, is Palin's hometown health club in Wasilla, AK.

Magazine editors may debate the ethics of Palin using the club as product placement on the cover, but let the record show that a health club is on the cover of a major magazine this week.

As for Palin's political future, she states on the cover that "I can win," even though she hasn't officially thrown her hat into the ring to run for president in 2012. If she does run, Edge Fitness, with all the exposure, may need to expand.
