Governor Palin was a guest on America Live with Megyn Kelly today to discuss President Obama's supposed jobs plan, Governor Rick Perry's "treasonous" comments and the President's response, media treatment of Michele Bachmann, and her own thoughts as she decides whether to enter the 2012 race.
Concerning 2012, I listened very carefully to what Governor Palin said. From my perspective, she made it clear that as of today she is planning to run for President. Here's what she said:
Still looking for that candidate whom I can put my heart and soul behind to support. If I don't see that person here in short order, I would be willing to put my name forward in the name of service.
She went on to say that the field is not yet set, that others will get in and some will get out. But again, it was clear to me that even though she's "impressed" with the lineup, she is still looking for someone she can support wholeheartedly--or she will be that someone. If the person she could get behind were already a candidate, she wouldn't still be looking, and if she still finds herself looking soon, she said, she'll be entering the race.
Watch and listen for yourself:
