If you still had desires of seeing Sarah Palin run for president in 2012, Monday evening may have reinvigorated those hopes.

On the Fox Business Network’s Follow The Money, host Eric Bolling was tempted by his viewers to ask the former Alaska governor the top question on their minds.

“Can you please ask the Governor to run for president?” he mentioned. “Look, it’s not too late. It’s not too late. Any chance we can see you making a play, even after Iowa or New Hampshire? There is still plenty of time, Governor.”

“You know, it’s not too late for folks to jump in and I don’t know,” she replied. “Who knows what will happen in the future?”

Back in October, Palin ruled out any chance at pursuing the White House.

“After much prayer and serious consideration, I have decided that I will not be seeking the 2012 GOP nomination for President of the United States,” she wrote in a letter to her supporters.

Back in September, Palin’s PAC was still asking donors for money if she were to run, even though she told her family months earlier that she wouldn’t be running.
