With the Republican presidential race making way, Sarah Palin told Newsweek that she has no doubt in her ability to win the Republican nomination, and succinctly the oval office.
The former Governor of Alaska and current celebrity said the only thing that will prevent her from running is her family.
“If it came down to the family just saying, ‘Please, Mom, don’t do this,’ then that would be the deal-killer for me, because your family’s gotta be in it with you,” Palin said.
As for her prospective platform Palin proclaimed, “The people of America are desperate for positive change, and deserving of positive change, to get us off of this wrong track.”
“I’m not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around,” she said. “But I do believe that I can win.”
Whatever decision Palin makes will alter the near-ideal circumstance she enjoys now. From the remove of her cyber-perches on Twitter and Facebook, and the occasional appearance on Fox News (where she is a paid contributor), Palin is able to do plenty of politicking, unfettered by the encumbrances of a declared candidacy. She has no campaign staff directing her course (a famous source of unease during her vice-presidential run) and no press secretary urging her to accommodate what she calls the “lamestream media.” She and Todd are free to keep any schedule they wish. “We don’t advertise where we’re going,” she said that evening, in what might be the understatement of the political season.
