Former Alaska governor Sarah Palin spoke with Shannon Bream this afternoon on Fox News and said she was not yet prepared to endorse a candidate for the 2012 Republican presidential nomination. “You know, my endorsement is going to be with sincerity and enthusiasm and I’m just not there yet with the field as it stands,” Palin explained.
“There is no need to endorse until that enthusiasm really is within me in my gut and I also believe that my endorsement and anybody else is really sometimes doesn’t amount to a hill of beans when you consider the independent thinking and the wisdom of the voters that they make up their own mind and personal endorsement doesn’t always, you know, it helps shape the race so I don’t put that at kind of creedence or credibility in my endorsement at all, but as soon as I feel that that person who understands the fiscal crisis especially that America faces and know has to do about it then i will feel that enthusiasm and I will endorse but i’m not ready yet.”
Bream asked Governor Palin if such a candidate existed in the field.
“I honestly don’t know yet,” Palin maintained.

Additionally, Palin gave props to Denver Broncos quarterback Tim Tebow for his staunch Christianity. “He knows that Jesus is going to rock your world when you give it over to him and he is bold about it and knows that the son of God should be honored and praised and Tebow knows that and I respect it.”
