Palin Says She Wants To Be 2012 Player If They Lose

When informed about this, a McCain aide was speechless.  Normally, the answer is that you’re not looking past election day and you’ll then evaluate future plans.  But Sarah Palin told ABC’s Elizabeth Vargas, “I’m not doing this for naught.”


Nicole at Crooks and Liars shows the Wolf Blitzer report with Dana Bash, who spoke to an incredulous McCain adviser about this:


BASH: I just got off of the phone, Wolf, with a senior McCain adviser and I read this person the quote and I think it is fair to say that this person was speechless. There was a long pause and I just heard a “huh” on the other end of the phone. This is certainly not a surprise to anybody who has watched Sarah Palin that she is interested in potentially future national runs, and she is being urged to by a lot of people inside of the Republican Party if they do lose, but it is an “if” and people inside of the McCain campaign do not want any discussion that has an “if” in front of it six days before the election, they don’t want any discussion at all, any kind of hypothetical talk about running for the next time around. So certainly, this is not at least initially being received well inside of the McCain campaign.
