Is Sarah Palin ‘Ready’ for Hillary?

Sarah Palin gave an interview to Extra set to air Tuesday night that was mainly intended to promote the second season of her Amazing America reality show but also touched on the politics of 2016 just for fun. At one point the interviewer asked for her take on a Hillary Clinton-led Democratic presidential ticket.

“Of course, Hillary Clinton’s name has been floated out there for a long time as the Democratic nominee, are we ready for that?” Extra’s Charissa Thompson asked Palin.

“I would love to see a woman on both sides of the aisle shooting for that top spot,” the former vice-presidential candidate replied, searching for an acceptably diplomatic answer.

As for her own presidential aspirations, Palin said she’s asked “quite a few times” a day if she is going to run for president in 2016. She insisted that she did not want to “sound like a typical politician” before saying, “2016 is a long time away” and “that’s a big darn deal when it comes to family.”

Finally, Palin weighed in on those rumors that she was actively considering joining The View as a co-host. “I think it would be fun to be able to highlight more of the issues that they get to focus on,” she said. But ultimately she decided she would rather do “something positive, encouraging and inspiring and not bickering sitting across a table or on a panel.”
