Sarah Palin says she isn't sure whether she'll run for president in 2016, but that current Republican front-runner Chris Christie will survive the controversy now haunting his office.

She also said the loss of television jobs by Katie Couric, whose interview with Palin is thought to have damaged the election hopes of Palin and presidential running mate John McCain in 2008, wasn't surprising.

Appearing on the syndicated entertainment show "Extra," Palin was asked by host Mario Lopez if she believes in karma.

I certainly believe that what goes around comes around," Palin responded.

Lopez then asked her whether she knew where she was when she heard that Couric had lost her daytime talk show "Katie." Palin said she didn't remember, but received several messages from friends about it after it happened in December.

"I remember getting a couple of texts that said things like, 'Oh, sorry that it didn’t work out there at CBS or ABC,'" Palin said.

She also said she wasn't surprised when Couric stepped down as anchor of "The CBS Evening News."

"The ratings were going in the tank with her as one of the head honchos there in the newsroom at CBS, and then it didn't surprise me, her other move," Palin said. "Things weren't going real well there, either."

Couric appeared to stump Palin in a CBS News interview when the former Alaska governor was seeking the vice presidency, when Couric asked what newspapers and magazines Palin read.

It was the same interview in which Palin noted, on a question about foreign policy, that her state's neighbors were foreign countries: Canada and Russia. That answer led to comedian Tina Fey's impression of Palin in which she said, "I can see Russia from my house!"
