Palin Dodges Talk of Running for Governor Again

Alaska Gov. Sarah has fueled speculation that she'll seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 by declining to say — at least for now — whether she will run for re-election in Alaska next year.

Asked by CNN's Wolf Blitzer if she definitely plans to run for re-election, Palin said: "I'm not definitely going to do anything yet.

"What I'm trying to get done for Alaska right now is to get that Alaska [natural] gas line built. We need those energy sources flowing through North America. That's what my focus is. That and raising my family, doing those good things that we need done up there in Alaska. That's my focus."

Blitzer asked: "So, no decision yet on either 2010 or let alone 2012, is that right?

The former GOP vice presidential candidate responded: "No decision that I'd want to announce today."

Running for re-election would be "a move unlikely for someone seeking the White House," CNN observed.

According to the Los Angeles Times, "other Alaskan politicians are positioning themselves for a governor's bid should she drop out."

Asked by Blitzer for her thoughts on President Barack Obama, Palin said she thinks he is "growing government way too quickly."
