In the new issue of Newsweek, Sarah Palin says in no uncertain terms that she can win a national election. Of course, she hasn't decided if she'll try to prove it.
"I believe that I can win a national election," she says, adding that she firmly believes Americans are "desperate" and "deserving" of "positive change."
"I'm not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around, but I do believe that I can win."
This week's Newsweek cover story on the ex-Alaska Governor comes shortly after the release of the erroneously-titled documentary about her, The Undefeated.
Sarah revealed that her daughter, Bristol Palin, wants her to run for president in 2012, "but we're still thinking about it; I'm still thinking about it," she said.
Palin said the "deal killer" would be if her family told her not to.
Her husband, Todd, says it's "up to her. I mean, we'll discuss it. But she's definitely qualified to run this country. And she's a got a fire in the belly to serve."
Or to tease the possibility of a presidential bid as long as humanly possible, keeping her profile high and ego stroked without actually having to do work.
That's our guess. Especially since Michele Bachmann, who appeals to many in the pro-Palin camp and is arguably more qualified, is already running hard.
What do you think? Should Palin run in '12?
