I saw Eric Bolling tease this over an hour ago. It appears that Palin has suggested that it still isn’t too late for someone to jump into the presidential race, but obviously we don’t know if she was referring to herself. The tease is leading us to believe that she may in fact be leaving the door open to a presidential run, but I guess we’ll have to tune in tonight to find out:
YAHOO NEWS – Sarah Palin says it’s not too late for someone to jump into the Republican presidential race.
Asked by Fox Business Network about the likelihood that she’d become a candidate, the former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee said it’s not too late for “folks” to jump in. Said Palin: “Who knows what will happen in the future.”
The full interview is scheduled for broadcast Monday night.
She appears not to be talking about a third party run, which is a good thing. The question is, how many states would she lose up front from just not being on the ballot? I’ve not done the calculations but I expect there will be several.
At any rate, I’ll save the speculation until after we get the full context of her remarks tonight.
