Skip to comments.Palin to run as independent? 'Not out of the realm of possibility'

A fellow tea-party candidate and Alaskan politician who drew Sarah Palin's endorsement in 2010 says it's not "out of the realm of possibility" that the former governor might still run for president in 2012 as an independent.
Former Republican U.S. Senate candidate Joe Miller evaluated the chances Palin might run in a conversation with Aaron Klein during the host's "Aaron Klein Investigative Radio" program on New York City's WABC Radio.
When asked if Palin, who announced she would not seek the Republican nomination for president, might consider running as an independent, Miller replied, "You know, I think it's unlikely. I don't think it's out of the realm of possibility, but certainly if you ask her today, I think she would affirm that there's no way she would do that.
"In fact, she made it very clear in her statement that she is going to focus not only on making sure the Republican nominee wins in 2012, but also to assist in making sure that the Senate is retaken," he continued. "So at least taking her opinion today, she would tell you no."
Miller, however, refused to slam the door on the idea: "But I know Sarah, and the reality is she's a fighter. If she sees the country in desperate need of leadership not being provided by either of the two parties, who knows? Maybe she would jump into it."

I think she already said recently that going 3rd party is an automatic win for Obama, she won’t do it..although after the GOP elitists have smeared her I wouldn’t blame her for doing it, but she won’t because she knows that it would mean Obama wins and we cannot let that happen
I need to find her quote. This is madness.
Won’t support anyone who does that.
Did she say she would not seek the REPUBLICAN nomination or did she say she would not seek the Presidency in 2012?
Who thinks up this stuff? If she does that, she is either a moron or a traitor. I doubt she’s either.
Very funny. She won’t do it and shouldn’t.
Its only Joe Miller’s opinion..Sarah Palin already said she would never run as an Independent..only as a Republican, knowing that an Independent run is an automatic win for Obama
Miller, however, refused to slam the door on the idea
Who cares what Miller slams the door on? Palin already said no.
It’s Joe Miller.
“I can only see her doing that if she was sure she could beat both Obama and Romney. “
I agree, and I’ll add Perry to that list. Now, if it’s Cain, she won’t waste her time, as her votes are already with him (and so is her politics).
Note to Worldnetdaily: Dude, let it go. She doesn't want it.
The leftist media performed a modern day virtual crucifixion of this great American. Is there any doubt as to why she'd want to bow out of the race? I don't blame her a bit.
I don’t know where it is, (her quote) but she said something like:
“It’s hard for me to believe that people would trust me to be the leader of the free world but the same people aren’t willing to trust my decision that God led me to.”
Of course she put it much more eloquently than I have.
Point of order.
If Guv Palin was such a “fighter” as the author alleges, why did she.
If Palin’s truly a fighter, she’ll suit up, dust herself off, apologize to HER ENTHUSIASTIC, DEDICATED SUPPORTERS, and get back in the game.
Enough of the prima-donna stuff. Game on.
Stop screwing around.
i would vote for palin as an independent.
this country’s at stake.
obama and romney are not a solution to our problems.
She may not seek the nomination, however there is no reason why she cannot be drafted once we know who is going into the convention as the presumed nominee.
I’m rapidly losing respect for Joe Miller.
If she ran as a third party candidate, sensible Republicans would hate her even more than the leftists hate her now! Oh... and leftists would absolutely fall in LOVE with her!
Yep here is the exact quote..
youre going to trust me to be the leader of the free world but you dont trust me to make the decision that God led me to make at this time.
But of course people are going to continue to make stuff up about her, its never going to end, no matter what she does. She already said she is not running, she doesn’t want to at this time. Sarah puts her faith in God, she feels like its not her time to run now, that’s her decision and I respect it completely.
It's on Mark Levin's website.
