Palin Still Coy About Presidential Run

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is “still thinking about” entering the 2012 Presidential race.

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin is still keeping fans and press members alike in the dark about a possible 2012 Presidential run.

“We’re still thinking about that,” she told members of the press at the Pella, Iowa, premiere of “The Undefeated,” according to The full-length documentary film focuses on her time as Governor, with the goal of showing her triumphs and heartaches more positively than the mainstream media’s portrayals.

That she has still not made a decision is contrary to statements made by Palin’s daughter, Bristol, earlier on Tuesday. During a Fox News appearance, Bristol said her mother “definitely knows” whether she will run.

“You know what I told Bristol when I heard that? I said, ‘Bristol! What we say on the fishing boat stays on the fishing boat. You don’t need to be announcing anything,’” Palin said, according to CNN.

However, all the mystery has some Palin fans abandoning ship.

“Sarah-never in a million years did I ever think I’d say this to you. Michele (Bachmann) is running for President as you may know. I ask that you not run against her. If you are to run, it will divide conservative votes,” one fan wrote on Palin’s Facebook page. “To save this nation….please don’t run. Let Michele take it from here….you and I both know she’s got what it takes. I still support you…and admire you as a person, but this time for politics….I have to withdraw my support and hand it to Michele.”
