Sarah Palin says she would make another run for the White House 'in a heartbeat'

Sarah Palin, the former governor of Alaska and one-time vice presidential hopeful, recently said that she would make another run for the White House “in a heartbeat.”

Palin made the comment on an installment of Fox News’ ‘Life, Liberty & Levin’ that aired on Sunday and in response to a question about whether she was happy she served as Senator John McCain’s running mate in 2008.

“I had to push back harder on some of those who were trying to mold me into something that I was not during the campaign. I would’ve pushed back and gotten more truth out there, but heck, yes.” Palin said. “I would’ve pushed back and gotten more truth out there, but heck yeah.”

Palin went on to question the McCain campaign’s apparent reluctance to stand up for her, noting, “I was mostly shocked that the campaign itself didn’t defend against a lot of the lies that were being spewed during the campaign, and then when that narrative was created, they created a caricature of Sarah Palin and the Palin family, once that bell is wrung, it’s hard to unring.”

While McCain and Palin were successful in winning the bulk of the nation’s central states, Barack Obama and his running mate Joe Biden emerged victorious overall, taking 365 electoral votes to their opponents’ 173.
