Gov. Sarah Palin may be joining President Barack Obama on stage this weekend in Washington, her first trip to D.C. since losing her VP campaign.

The 44 year-old Alaskan governor will attend the 96th annual Alfalfa Dinner on the traditional last Saturday of January.

While President Obama is lined up to speak at the "no press allowed" event, Palin may, or may not be making a speech of her own.

Palin spokesman Bill McAllister acknowledged via e-mail that Palin would be addressing the dinner crowd, however, Alfalfa Club members don't expect Palin to speak.

So what gives?

Historically, Alfalfa members elect a "mock candidate" for President, then the nominee is required to give a pseudo-acceptance speech.

Maybe Palin's expecting to win this time?
