On the eve of the Iowa Caucuses, Governor Palin appeared on Fox News, where Eric Bolling was filling in for Neil Cavuto. In light of the recent ads in Iowa asking her to "Reconsider" her decision and run for President, the movements to draft her, and the write-in "Vote Rogue" campaign, Bolling asked the Governor many questions about entering the 2012 race.
Reading various internet comments reveals that some people actually get it now: she does not plan to run. Others refuse to face that and insist "she's SO running." Still some are trashing her, which I knew would occur when people finally saw that she's not running and would need someone to blame for their own wishes that they thrust upon her.
Eric Bolling asked her about Newt Gingrich's recent comment that she is on his short list as a possible VP running mate or as a member of his cabinet, Energy Secretary.
Finally, Governor Palin also discussed the current GOP field again and stated something that many of us have felt for some time: Jon Huntsman should drop out of the race. "He didn't even give it the old college try in Iowa," which is "offensive." She then said Michele Bachmann will probably soon follow. While acknowledging that Bachmann has some good ideas, she said, "I don't think it's her time this go-around."
Concerning jumping into the 2012 fray, I believe Governor Palin made it abundantly clear for those who have ears to hear. You have to decide for yourself, of course:
