Skip to comments.Sarah Palin On a 2016 Run: "I'll Never Say Never"
Posted on 03/08/2014 2:33:12 PM PST by 2ndDivisionVet
GRETA VAN SUSTEREN: Do you have a favorite candidate for 2016?
SARAH PALIN: No, not yet.
VAN SUSTEREN: Nothing? Who is sort of your -- who is at the top of your list? Are you considering running?
PALIN: Who is at the top of my list.
VAN SUSTEREN: Let me back up to my other question.
PALIN: No, question at a time. I appreciate those who have fought for America, like Ted Cruz, like Rand Paul. You know though, it doesn't have to be someone who has a title today, someone in office today. In fact, some would say we need to stay clear of those who have followed a conventional political path. Maybe they are part of the problem. There are businessmen and women out there. There are strong family men and women who understand what it is that makes America exceptional and they want to protect that. They want to get back to that. Maybe someone like that will rise and be the candidate in 2016. Maybe that's what we need.
VAN SUSTEREN: Okay now I get to ask that question. Are you considering -- is it still within a possibility that you'll run in 2016?
PALIN: It sounds cliche, but you never say never. Now, I -- at this point in time, I don't have a team of people, you know, getting out there doing these poll-tested whatever they do to let you know if you should run or not. I don't have any of that kind of organization going. I'll never say never....

Works for me!
Fox has a streamer that says Programing Alert WATCH SARAH PALIN SPEAK AT CPAC AT 6PM ON FOX NEWS CHANNEL
Can I get that on the net? TV no longer works in my neighborhood.
Grrrr..She needs to get over Rand Paul. She really does.
Making leftist a crazier since 2008
Probably at Fox News’ website.
Such a great patriotic lady. Smart, accomplished, experienced and a fighter. Just have to see what happens. The Repub establishment screwed her over badly when she literally ran the McLame campaign.
She has the right stuff...time will tell. IMHO, she would not support another RINO eRepub.
If Palin runs then what the media and the Democrats will do to her and her family I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy.
I don’t think she’ll run until Trig is older (unfortunately).
I doubt if she will run, but never the less, I would like to see a debate with her and Ms. Clinton. She’s got to prove to the MSM that she is not stupid like they portray her.
I like Palin. But I think she cast a long, long shadow over the 2012 field by not making her intentions clear for so long. I hope she doesn’t do that again for 2016. She IMO really needs to make her intentions clear by early 2015.
Governor Sarah Palin is a woman devoted to God and His Eternal, Inerrant Word. Since the foundation of America is built on Biblical principles, Governor Palin is the one uniquely qualified to restore this country to what it once was.
I love Governor Palin, and she's my first choice for president, but I don't like this answer. She needs to make herself relevant by announcing early, when the conservatives who love her will follow, or she needs to make herself relevant by announcing that she will not run early and clearing the field for other strong conservatives. America needs her to make her intentions known before Rubio, Christie, or another Bush has the nomination locked up.
Try the foxnews.com website under the ‘video’ tab.
Complete agreement here.
It’s March of 2014. No other major party candidate has announced. Not Hillary, Rand Paul, Krispy Kreme, Marco, Bush or anyone else.
Agreed, but she should make her intentions known informally early (by the day after this November’s election at the latest) and formally within a week of the first serious announcement. She should also start putting together a campaign staff if she is going to run.
Agree... and really... as much as I might like her as a candidate.... she can’t win. Her role needs to be to define the discussion. To fuel the cause. Just my opinion.
The only reason she ‘can’t’ is conservatives voting for someone else.
She’s on next.
Thanks for the link. Also on CSPAN.
Palin is not a candidate who would need to declare early. Those who declare early are usually the ones with no chance because of little name recognition, or those who nobody ever doubted would run (sitting V.P., Hilary, etc.).
There’s nearly a year before any of the big names need to throw their hats in.
No reason not to, every reason to give it a shot.
One thing for sure: she has been vetted like no other candidate every will be. Short of a GYN which I’m sure the libs would love to do, they’ve dug and dredged and come up with diddly-squat. And everything they have is old news, people have heard it before. So it’s all upside potential for her, to convince those who thought they’d made up their minds that maybe she’s not so stupid after all, maybe she has the best ideas to build a country where their kids and grandkids might have a chance to be more than subjects or serfs.
It's if she's not running that we need to know early.
Well then ya better get your rear in gear missy.
She is knocking it out of the park at CPAC.... speaking right now
Thanks for showing her the proper respect due a former governor, fine conservative Christian lady, wife, mother, grandmother and leading light of the Tea Party movement.
Had she stayed as gov. and won re-election, she would’ve have been a strong candidate. But, she didn’t. I don’t blame her for wanting to get out and make some money after the way she was treated in ‘08. A gov. who didn’t finish even one term isn’t going to make it.
That’s my opinion as well.
She’s on right now
So are Bill Clinton's peccadillos but people seem to think that they are a strong issue to use against Hillary. If Palin runs then what she saw the last time is nothing compared to what the Dems will do to her and her family this time around.
Rand Paul is pro-amnesty. Cannot support that.
Go Sarah, go!
if you want to keep your doctor
And politician. I will genuflect to no politician. Even the relatively good ones.
Unless the left literally assassinates her, I’d say the founders put up with worse from the British to found this country. As for the rest of us, we should start by stomping out the PDS from our own side and right here on FR before we worry about the left... since there seem to be plenty that want to kill off her POTENTIAL candidacy before it begins.
Exactly my point.
Do I REALLY have to explain to you, at this remove, why she had to resign? And it wasn’t to “make some money after the way she was treated in 2008.” We’ve been talking about this since that day in 2009, yet there are still people here soaking up the Leftist lies about why she left. My head f^^^*** hurts!
I would vote for her if she ran a serious campaign. But I sincerely hope she does say “No” early on if she isn’t going to do so. Last time she helped Romney immensely by staying on the fence until it was too late to coalesce around someone else.
Then you’re a douche in this instance. Have a nice day.
That’s good unless she plays hard to get so long that she keeps another conservative from building momentum.
This may surprise you: I’d support her if she ran. But I don’t think she will.
It’s easy to understand. Anyone repeating leftist memes isn’t a conservative and should be treated accordingly. No need for aspirin. Just action.
How does one say bullshit in Crimean or Austrian?
I don’t know. How do you say “How so?”
That's not why she resigned. I suggest you read up a bit more on Sarah Palin, rather than just accepting the lies told by the left.
Since you’d never use the phrase “hard to get” about a male politician I now know a little bit more about your personality than I really care to.
She had ZERO to do with Milt being the nominee last cycle. Now do you get it? The fracking voters of the several states, many of whom were probably Democrats crossing over to give us a sh***y candidate, did that. If conservatives couldn’t drag themselves to the polling places, despite Johnny’s soccer game or Courtney’s dance recital or the game on TV, then we got who we deserved. Comprende?
Oh for heavens sake....you need to do a little research
