Newt Gingrich says he would consider Sarah Palin as a running mate if he wins the Republican nomination.

The former House speaker made the comment in response to a caller’s question during a teleconference that Ralph Reed’s Faith & Freedom Coalition hosted last week.

“If you’re fortunate enough to be nominated, would you consider having Sarah Palin as your running mate?” the caller said.

Gingrich responded, “She is certainly one of the people you would look at. I am a great admirer of hers and she was a remarkable reform governor of Alaska, she’s somebody who I think brings a great deal to the possibility of helping in government and that would be one of the possibilities.”

Gingrich also noted that the Republican vice-presidential candidate from 2008 could be a candidate for a Cabinet slot. “There are also some very important Cabinet positions that she could fill very, very well. I can’t imagine anybody who would do a better job of driving us to an energy solution than Gov. Palin, for example. Tell her that she would certainly be on the list of one of the people we would consider.”
