"She Didn't Say Yes,She Didn't Say No" Xtra's Lopez Asks Gov.Palin If She Will Run In 2016
Palin revealed, “You know I don’t have a crystal ball. I don’t know what I’m going to do politically, but certainly want to inspire people to be involved, debate and be competitive in order to make this country better and allow all of us equal opportunity. I want to help people who can be in positions to enact some policies.”
Palin also commented on New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s recent administration scandal, saying she doesn’t think it will affect him running for president. “I don’t think this prohibits him from running for higher office. What Chris Christie has been engaged in the last couple of days isn’t nearly as significant when you consider lives that have been lost via the scandals and cover-ups that have gone on in the White House.”
Some have said Palin’s 2008 Vice Presidential campaign was derailed by a series of disastrous interviews with Katie Couric. Mario asked for Sarah’s reaction to the cancellation of Couric’s talk show.
“Do you believe in karma?” Palin responded. “I certainly believe that what goes around comes around... I remember getting a couple of texts that said things like, 'Oh sorry that it didn’t work out there at CBS or ABC…'" Sarah added that she wasn’t surprised Couric stepped down from CBS News. “The ratings were going in the tank with her as one of the head honchos there in the newsroom at CBS and then it didn’t surprise me, her other move. Things weren’t going real well there, either.”
As for her own TV career, Palin said she would be interested in doing a talk show herself. “That would probably would be a fun opportunity as long as I got to pick the subject matter and got to talk to more inspiring people out there to help inspire others.”
As for her new show, Sarah is really excited. “I get to work with the best of the best, a team at Sportsman Channel where these guys aren’t faking it. They’re out there living the Alaska America lifestyle where everybody is in the outdoors. We’re going to showcase people, places and things that kind of encompass all of that and inspire people to get out doors and live life vibrantly.”
“Amazing America with Sarah Palin” premieres in April on The Sportsman Channel.
