The Silicon Valley Chamber of Commerce is looking for a speaker for its annual "Legends and Leaders" event, which has featured the likes of Condoleeza Rice, Rudy Giuliani, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bob Dole and Barbara Bush in the past.

And if a report from San Jose Inside is true, the guest for 2010 could be none other than former Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin.

Palin, who was the Republican Party's nominee for vice president in last year's presidential campaign, has been traveling the country to promote her book Going Rogue and collect lavish speaking fees after abruptly resigning as Alaska's governor this year, cutting short her term.

Last year, Palin was scheduled to speak at a campaign fundraising lunch hosted at Siebel Systems founder Tom Siebel's home in Woodside.

That event proved so popular, it was moved to the Santa Clara County Convention Center. However, in a typically rogue move, she canceled her plans.

Hopefully this time Palin won't let down her fans -- or her detractors, who've been anxious to get up close and personal with some ripe tomatoes.

Jackson West now understands the appeal of NASCAR thanks to Plain -- you can't look away for fear of missing another spectacular, fiery wreck.
