Palin implies bid for 2012 presidential campaign


U.S. Republican vice-presidential nominee Sarah Palin suggested Wednesday that she might be a candidate in the next presidential race if her running mate John McCain is defeated on Nov. 4.

In an interview with ABC News, she was asked about her future plan.

"I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we've taken, that would bring this whole and I'm not doing this for naught," said Palin.

Nevertheless, the 44-year-old governor said she believed in the current GOP ticket and that she was "thinking that it's going to go our way on Nov. 4."

Some sources within the McCain campaign have suggested that Palin's series of public statements that differ from McCain and seem to come as a surprise to the campaign are evidence of her "going rogue."

The Alaska governor has said publicly that the campaign should have continued to fight in Michigan after McCain pulled out of the race there and she condemned the use of negative robocalls, even when McCain publicly approved of them.

Palin surprised the campaign last week when she said her medical records would be released, even though the campaign had not authorized them to be made public. Those records have yet to be made public.
