"Those within the establishment who have kind of perpetuated the problem by going along just to get along, including some who've been wishy-washy on the Obama-Pelosi-Reid agenda — the message sent to them is no more," Palin said.I find it very hard to believe Palin. While she claims she would make the personal sacrifices to enter public service once again, her last time in a governmental leadership roll proved otherwise - Palin quit almost halfway through her only term as Alaska's governor for fame and fortune on the conservative celebrity entertainer circuit.
She was more equivocal about her own political future, telling Wallace, "I love the freedom that I have, that I can sit here and I can tell you anything that I want to tell you and not have to worry so much about how it will affect my future political career, or my relationship with senators or congressmen."
But when Wallace said he believed she would not run because she was enjoying private life too much, the former governor hastened to clarify that she would be happy to step back into public life.
"You know, the country is worth it, though, to make those sacrifices, when we talk about making money today, having a lot of fun today, having all this freedom," she said. "If the country needed me — and I'm not saying that the country does and that the country would ever necessarily want to choose me over anyone else, but I would be willing to make the sacrifices if need be for America."
I also find Palin's arrogance and ignorance quite interesting - Palin told Chris Wallace that she could pretty much say anything and it would not affect her future political career, but that is far from being accurate. Should Palin run for office again, I doubte her numerous statements, ranging from "death panels" to defending Dr. Laura's "nigger" rant, would do any good bolstering her chances of winning.
