While there appears to be some tension between declared presidential candidate Michele Bachmann and potential candidate Sarah Palin
, the former Alaska governor sees the Minnesota House member as ready for the job. To be sure, in remarks to Fox Business network
, Palin didn’t exactly offer fulsome praise to Bachmann.
Asked by Fox whether Bachmann is prepared to be president, Palin answered, “She is. I am convinced the field isn’t set. Other people will jump in.”
Palin expressed hope for a strong Republican nominee, but didn’t guarantee support for whoever emerges. “I am going to work as hard as I can to make sure a nomine surfaces who is a supporter of a smaller, smarter government, and then we won’t be in the position of needing to go rogue,” she said.
“But as I said before, it’s anybody but Obama. Things cannot get any worse under a Republican administration.”
