Sarah Palin Wants to See Two Women Run for President

By    |   Wednesday, 10 December 2014 09:38 AM

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin may not be a candidate, but she would enjoy seeing a woman "on both sides of the aisle" running for president.

"I would love to see a woman on both sides of the aisle shooting for that top spot," Palin told Extra TV in response to a question about whether the nation was "ready" for a Hillary Clinton campaign.

Asked by correspondent Charissa Thompson whether people still ask her about running for president, Palin said she is asked "several times a day."

Would she run again? She replied, "I don't want to sound like a typical politician and say, 'Well, 2016 is a long way,' but 2016 is a long way off."

"It's a big darn deal when it comes to family,” she added.

The interview was to promote the Jan. 15 premiere of the second season of "Amazing America with Sarah Palin," the show she hosts on the Sportsman Channel.

Palin was less diplomatic when discussing Clinton's culpability in the Democrats' defeat in the midterm elections.

“All of the Democrats’ failed policies and failed candidates and failed surrogates. Well, that was just really made manifest by the American people when we all said no to that and to stop that and Hillary, of course, was a part of that," said Palin on Fox News' "Hannity" show.

“[T]hey will do all that they can to protect Hillary and try to change the narrative as you already heard I’m sure, try to make it sound like well she was the winner in all of this, that she had chosen the right ones and the right policies to support," the former vice presidential candidate told host Sean Hannity. "That government and politicians and others have to do things for them, they will do things for Hillary to continue to prop her up."

Palin admitted that she would like to remain engaged in politics and even to run again in the future, but she did not have a particular office in mind.

Palin, who hit the campaign trail during the midterm elections on behalf of several GOP candidates, will be in attendance at the "Iowa Freedom Summit" in January, according to a press release from Citizens United, which is co-hosting the event.

The gathering of conservatives will be held in Des Moines on Jan. 24 and will feature other conservatives, including Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee, former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum, and Utah Sen. Mike Lee.
