In an interview with Fox News on Wednesday, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin offered some of her most direct comments yet about what it would take for her to launch a presidential bid.
"A reason to run is if nobody else were to step up with the solutions that are needed to get the economy back on the right track and to be so committed to our national security that they are going to do all that they can, including fighting those on the extreme left who seem to want to dismantle some of our national security tools that we have in place,” Palin told Fox's Greta Van Susteren. “If nobody else wanted to step up, Greta, I would offer myself up in the name of service to the public."
Last week Palin traveled to Iowa, a key early primary state, to speak at a major Republican political gathering.
