Definentally not internally, however if you were to jailbreak it, the chances of you being able to connect a USB webcam would be high in the near future, as there may be 3rd party adaptors that allow you to connect USB devices through the dock connector, and that + jailbreak + software is really the only way it would work.

You also wouldn´t be able to get the crappy iOS to work with it either, adding on to what Chris was saying, USB support is key, iSight works over USB, and the iPad lacks USB support. It just wouldn´t be able to be discovered. Perhaps a combination of software and hardware hacking could do it, but I´d just get a WeTab or something like that.
