These are fighting words. The former Alaska governor told Barbara Walters that she could beat President Obama in the next presidential race—that is, if she decides to run. Palin told Walters in an upcoming interview that she is strongly considering running for president, but declined to give a straight answer. "I'm engaged in the internal deliberations candidly, and having that discussion with my family, because my family is the most important consideration here," she told The New York Times. Walters interviewed Palin as part of her 10 Most Fascinating People program scheduled to air December 9 on ABC.
