Skip to comments.Bristol Palin: I’d ‘probably’ run for office ‘further down the road’
Posted on 02/07/2011 9:01:04 PM PST by pissant
In an exclusive, in-depth interview with E! Onlines Giuliana Rancic, Dancing With the Stars finalist Bristol Palin talked about running for public office further down the road, son Tripp, ex-boyfriend Levi Johnston, her new boyfriend, and being a Maricopa, Ariz. homeowner.
When Rancic asked if she would ever run for office, Palin said, Probably. But that would be further down the road.
If I saw something that needed to be changed, then I would step up to the plate and do something about it, Palin said, addressing what would motivate her to enter elective politics.
Palin said she would run for office regardless of the invasion of privacy and scrutiny that goes hand in hand with being a political figure.
I think it would be a good enough payoff if I knew that I was going to go into something and change it and make it better, Palin said.
Bristol also said during the interview that her mother, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, would make a wonderful president.
I think she would be a wonderful president, and I still think that she should run, Palin said. Shes just so common-sense conservative
.just, Heres what weve gotta do and this is how were gonna do it, and she brings a whole nother aspect to politics because shes a mom, because she runs a household, and I just think shes really smart.

Thought you had a certain disdain for her mom?
But she would be okay?
gawd help us all
She could team up with Meghan for another Mccain/Palin ticket.
She might want to go to college first.
You are hilarious!
The woman I am taking care of wants to know what I am laughing about but it would take forever to explain it.
She might want to try voting ...omg
With millionaire parents and her own pay day from DWTS this girl is way out ahead of many others her age. She needs to STFU and find a hobby.
Leave the kid alone.
My money is on Piper.
This is my my gosh moment! My gosh, Sarah would make a wonderful president!
She needs to stay off facebook and do something with her life. Then, she may be a contender.
Uh... so what?
This from the full article:
“The Daily Caller reported Monday that HarperCollins confirmed they are going to publish her memoir.”
As the Southern ladies say - bless her heart.
Why? She's making a good living. All college offers is a chance for a job. These days, that strategy isn't even working. Look at the condition of our country with those Ivy League morons running it. I'll take someone with commonsense over those boneheads any day of the week.
Good grief, some of you people are petty. Maybe she could get a hobby hanging out on FreeRepublic trashing those who actually have dreams and ambitions.
would you or will you trash the Obama girls when they get to be 18, 19, or 20 ????????...
RUN SARAH RUN...you have them all worried!!! lol
Never take life so seriously...you’ll never live through it!!!!!!
Pissant is just so damn funny.
And has a sense of humor even if most Freepers can’t stand his position in regards to Sarah. I don’t have a problem with it.
At least he ain’t promo’ing Mutt, Huck or Newt.
That is one of the lowest blows. LOL
I’m from Oklahoma and it ranks right there with “mmmhuh, I hear ya’ “
“All college offers is a chance for a job.”
Oh, I disagree. College can be a wonderful, valuable experience in the maturation process and higher learning. No, I’m not necessarily talking Ivy League. although that shouldn’t be demonized, either. I loved college - yes, I had both good and bad teachers (just like grade school and high school), but I’m thankful for the experience and learned a lot (especially in hindsight).
While it’s not necessary for life success, it’s so much more than just “a chance for a job”.
Well, she doesn’t support clubbing babies to death like they were seals, and she was born in America, so she’s already 2 steops ahead of the current President.
It’s how her Mama got started, in local politics, moving up the ladder as she saw that things needed to be done. Why not? Lots of folks don’t ever bother to try to do something if they see things aren’t working. If she’s willing to learn the ropes and put herself out there on the line, why would anyone fault her for that?
After these past few weeks of hearing rancid nonsense from offspring like Meghan McCain, Ron Reagan and Patti Davis... heck, Bristol sure has been looking better and better! She makes some questionable moves at times, but seems plucky and good-hearted.
“shes already 2 steops ahead of the current President.”
Well, who isn’t?
If not for her mother's good fortune, Bristol would be worried about earning enough to keep her child in Pampers rather than publishing her 'memoir' and speculating on a future political office, that is, if the 'payoff' warrants it. (Twit)
Grow up first, Sweetheart.
Yes, of course, Bristol needs to write a memoir then run for office...unbelievable.
Also, I really could do w/o snarky comments from hillbillies who live vicariously thru the Palin's. :^)
We appear to be in the minority here, but deciding on a life of politics based on one’s family name doesn’t sound like a well thought out career choice, and suggests a certain level of emotional immaturity.
*Convince world I'm a twit.
*Embarrass mom & dad.
LOLOL!! Get over myself? You’re funny!
Those girls didn’t seek attention. They have been attacked mercilessly since the very beginning of the campaign. I’m proud of Bristol and her sisters. They are incredibly strong young ladies, just like her mom. You’re the one with a problem, not them.
And as for Sarah Palin’s “good fortune”. I’m guessing you would crap in your pants if you fell into that “good fortune”.
gents, you are both intelligent Palin fans. No need to get hostile over this. I posted it for light hearted info/humor. Not worth the name calling. Save that for the candidates after they announce.
I didn’t resort to name calling. And in this case, I was defending Bristol Palin, not her mother. Bristol Palin has not done one thing to elicit the hatred that’s been directed at her. She’s a fine young lady who would make any parent proud. Conservatives, esp. at FR, claim to be for freedom and liberty but let someone like Bristol do something out of the ordinary and all hell comes crashing down on her. It’s my belief that those who attack her do so because they are embarrassed and are too much of cowards to defend her honor to their liberal friends. They don’t want to be bothered.
I bestow neither honor nor scorn on her. But like all the palin fans said when she took Levi back - “she’s an adult, she can do whatever she wants”. Yes, I agree, and as an adult, she has chosen to put herself in the public eye. Aside from DWTS, she’s given lots of interviews, including this one apparently to E!, which is a cheesy paparazzi outfit. She makes money for it, great. But there is no reason whatsoever for anyone, conservative or otherwise, to feel some obligation to defend her honor. As an adult, she sinks or swims by her actions and words. Just like every other adult kid of a politician.
Indeed. It's not like Republicans can't have hypocritical double standards, too, ya know?
"But listening to him speak, it's easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or even a reform, not even in the state senate." -- Sarah Palin's 2008 convention speech
Probably in 2028 after Todd completes his second term
College is overrated, and nowadays produce so many marxists that our country is now on the verge of collapse...
Amen, FRiend. Most colleges today offer nothing but an expensive wall hanging.
God bless the girl but I hope she gains education, practical experience and maturity before attempting to tinker.
Please Mr. DeMint, run in 2012!!!!!!!!
And that applies to Bristol how?
‘do something with her life’
She has done things. Her appearance on Dancing with the Stars shows she has guts and a mind that doesn’t scatter when under pressure (like mine does). Now she lectures on the problems with unwed pregnancy. She says she might run for office. Voters will decide on her qualifications. Don’t worry about that.
