Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin says she would run for vice president again, but she would like to do it differently.
“I would do it again in a heartbeat,” Palin said when asked by Fox News host Mark Levin if she was glad she was chosen for the presidential ticket in 2008. “Heck, yeah.”
Palin — who resigned from her governorship after Sen. John McCain’s failed campaign rocketed her national political stardom — said she would do things differently if she ran again.
“I’d push back harder on some of those who were trying to mold me into something that I was not in the campaign,” she said. “I would have pushed back and gotten more truth out there.”
Palin became a political phenomenon when she entered the 2008 campaign as a virtual unknown. She was immediately praised as a fresh pick by McCain, boasting folksy charm and considerable charisma.
As the 2008 campaign progressed, Palin gave a series of interviews that seemed to reveal that she had a superficial knowledge of policy and weak grasp of foreign affairs. Many believe Palin was a major factor in dragging McCain to failure.
Could the controversial and mocked Palin make a return to the world of electoral politics? In a world with a President Donald Trump, anything seems possible.
