The hate machine on the left is about to lose its mind if Sarah Palin is serious when she said this week she is “interested” in running for president in 2016.
The former governor of Alaska spoke with a reporter from ABC News on Thursday while feeding the homeless at the Salvation Army in Las Vegas, and clearly left the door open to a potential run — she was in town to attend the Shooting, Hunting and Outdoor Trade Show.
“Yeah, I mean, of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested,” she said.
Palin spoke openly about the possibility of a female president.
“We definitely had enough of seeing that — America has had enough of seeing that — sign on the Oval Office door saying, ‘No Girls Allowed.’ I know that,” she said. Palin acknowledged that it doesn’t necessarily have to be her, but “America is definitely ready for real change.”
A sentiment echoed by Fox News host Megyn Kelly on Friday’s show, when she displayed an image of the all-male GOP field of presidential candidates.
“Really, GOP? No women?” she said.
When asked about the competitive field that’s likely to include Mitt Romney and Jeb Bush, among others, Palin said “competition will make everyone better,” but she hoped to see “new energy” in the quest to defeat Hillary Clinton.
“That competition in the GOP … will surface that candidate who can take on Hillary, be ready for Hillary and show the nation what it is going to take to get the country back on the right track,” Palin said. “Because we can’t afford status quo, because status quo lately has been Latin for, ‘We are getting screwed,’ and status quo has got to go.”
Palin will attend the Iowa Freedom Summit on Saturday, along with a number of potential GOP presidential candidates, ABC News reported.
