Palin: 'Double Standard' for Politicians Who Cry

Sarah Palin says there's a double standard when it comes to politicians who cry in public.

The former Alaska governor and possible 2012 Republican presidential candidate says she would be "knocked a little bit" if she cried while giving a speech. But Palin tells ABC's "Good Morning America" that House speaker-in-waiting John Boehner gets a "pass" when he cries in public.

palin, crying, double, standardPalin says that's OK, but that it makes women in politics work harder and "be that much tougher."

Palin's comments came in an interview at her lakefront home in Wasilla, Alaska.

She said she is giving a presidential run "prayerful consideration." She says she discounts unfavorable poll numbers and that she if she were to run, she would "be in it to win it."
