Palin Plays It Coy About 2012 Plans
Posted on Nov 16, 2009
Could she be a contender? In the eyes of the voting public, that remains to be seen. For her part, Sarah Palin isn’t giving any clear signals that she plans to make a play for the White House in 2012, but in her customary fashion, she’s not exactly answering that question directly and completely either. —KA
Palin spoke to TV talk show hostess Oprah Winfrey as she began the roll-out to her memoir, “Going Rogue: An American Life.” Palin made clear she wanted to concentrate on the 2010 congressional elections in which Republicans hope to make inroads into Democratic majorities in the U.S. Congress.
“I’m concentrating on 2010 and making sure that we have issues to tackle,” Palin said in the interview taped last week and broadcast on Monday. “I don’t know what I’m going to be doing in 2012. (Running for president is) not on my radar screen right now.”
