Palin says she is ready both for VP job, and Presidents if necessarySeptember 12th, 2008 - 2:29 pm ICT by ANI
Washington, Sep 12 (ANI): Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, in her first interview since becoming the Republican vice-presidential candidate, said that she never hesitated to take the spot on the ticket and that shes ready for the job of vice president and, if necessary, the President.
Im ready, Palin answered without any hesitation in an interview with ABC News on Thursday.
Palin said she had felt no doubt about accepting Senator John McCains offer to run as his vice-presidential nominee.
I answered him yes, because I have the confidence in that readiness and knowing that you cant blink, she said.
You have to be wired in a way of being so committed to the mission, the mission that were on, reform of this country and victory in the war, Palin added.
It was perhaps the most confident answer she supplied in a sometimes tense and generally probing interview.
It was her first session with a major news organization since she joined McCains Republican ticket two weeks ago and was immediately transformed from an obscure, first-term governor to a national political star.
Speaking at length with ABCs Charles Gibson, Palin also backed off an earlier comment that the Iraq war is a mission from God. (ANI)
