Sarah Palin on 2012 bid: God will show me the way

Defeated US Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin has replied to reports that she will run for President in 2012 by saying God will “show her the way.”

The Alaska governor refused to say whether she was planning to run for the US presidency in four years, stating in an exclusive interview with the Fox News Channel that 2012 remained too far off.

“I can’t predict what’s going to happen a day from now, much less four years from now,” Ms Palin said.

Palin sat down with Fox News’ Greta van Susteren to discuss the 2008 campaign and her political future.

“I’m like, OK, God, if there is an open door for me somewhere, this is what I always pray, I’m like, don’t let me miss the open door. Show me where the open door is,” she added.

The wide-ranging interview covered such familiar topics as the $150,000 spent on Palin’s wardrobe for the campaign, as well as the report that she was unable to name all the countries in North America and did not understand that Africa is a continent rather than a nation.

“And if there is an open door in ‘12 or four years later, and if it is something that is going to be good for my family, for my state, for my nation, an opportunity for me, then I’ll plow through that door.”

Ms. Palin’s faith was scrutinized during the election campaign after a video surfaced showing her being blessed by a Kenyan witch-hunter in a 2005 service at a Pentecostal church in Alaska.
