‘I Just Might’ Palin Glad-hands Iowa

DES MOINES, Iowa, Aug. 13 (UPI) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin told an Iowa crowd she hasn’t decided whether she is running for president.

On the eve of the state’s straw poll, Palin deflected all media questions about whether she intended to enter the Republican pool of presidential candidates.

“I think there is plenty of time to jump in the race,” she said. “Watching the whole process over the last year certainly shows me that, yes, there is plenty of room for more people.”

After the 2008 election in which Democrat Barack Obama defeated John McCain, Palin wrote a book and became a commentator on the conservative Fox TV news channel. She also hosted a TV series about life in Alaska.

At her Iowa appearance, Palin denied she was using her celebrity status to detract from other Republican presidential hopefuls.

“I don’t think I’m stealing any spotlights,” she said. “We’re very thankful to have been invited by friends, and I’m glad we could make it.”
