Palin Open to 2012 Run

How does Mitt Romney feel about this? During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Sarah Palin said that in 2012, “if there’s nobody else to do it,” she will run for president. "It's going to entail a discussion with my family [and] a real close look at the lay of the land, to consider whether there are those with that common sense, conservative, pro-Constitution passion, whether there are already candidates out there who can do the job,” Palin explained. If she determines that there are no good candidates ready or willing, “then of course I would believe that we should do this," she said.
