“Through my process of decision-making with my family and my close friends as to whether I should throw my name in the hat for the GOP nomination for 2012 – Is a title worth it? Does a title shackle a person?” Palin said Tuesday night on the Fox News show “On the Record.”
“Someone like me who’s a maverick? I do go rogue and I call it like I see it and I don’t mind stirring it up in order to get people to think and debate aggressively to find solutions to the problems that our country is facing,” Palin continued.
“Somebody like me, is a title and a campaign too shackling? Does that prohibit me from being out there and out of a box, not allowing handlers to shape me and to force my message to be what’s going on, or what contributors or political pundits want it to be?” Palin said.
“Does a title take away my freedom to call it like I see it and to affect positive change that we need in this country?” Palin said, explaining: “That’s the biggest contemplation piece in my process.”
