Palin for president in 2012... For real?

Sarah Palin told reporters today on her way to Miami for the Republican Governors Association annual conference that she is considering a run for the White House in 2012 or beyond.


She told a FOX reporter the following:

"Don't let me miss the open door. Show me where the open door is and even if it's cracked up a little bit, maybe I'll just plow right on through that and maybe prematurely plow through it, but don't let me miss an open door. And if there is an open door in '12 or four years later, and if it is something that is going to be good for my family, for my state, for my nation, an opportunity for me, then I'll plow through that door."

I can't, in good conscience, support a run for the White House in four years, when I feel like she lacks what I accused Obama of lacking.... experience. She is simply unqualified to be the next commander in chief of the U.S. in 2012.

On top of that, her image is in need of major repair. From the McCain camp's botch job of her rollout to how she was handled/treated/trashed by the media, it is evident that this hockey mom of five is not ready for a presidential fight to the finish. At least not in 2012.

Her family has also endured much ridicule over the last few months. Palin should take this time to regroup and rededicate herself to serving Alaska instead of prepping for a four-year run with hopes of serving the entire country.

Then again, if she can pull this off, it wouldn't be the first time I was wrong about something!

Check out the latest Palin interview Wednesday, Nov. 12, with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on the Situation Room at 4:00 p.m. ET.
