Palin Considering 2012 Run

In an interview with Fox News Sunday, former Governor Sarah Palin revealed that she will consider running for president in 2012 if she believes it is "the right thing to do for our country and the Palin family." She also said in her first Sunday show appearance, "I won't close a door that perhaps could be open for me in the future," and she thinks "it would be absurd to not consider what it is that I could potentially do to help our country." When questioned about President Obama, Palin said he would lose if the election was held today, but if he replaces his top advisers, his fate could change. She cited Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel as an example, saying his comment that liberal groups are "f-ing retards" was cause for his dismissal. Yet when asked about Rush Limbaugh's use of the same language, she was quick to defend the talk show host because, as she says, he was using satire.
