Palin Engaged In Talks With Family Over A White House Bid In 2012

November 18, 2010 (Pen Men at Work): A story reported in the New York Times Magazine lately has sent speculations about a Palin bid for the presidency skyrocketing.

Sarah Palin, who had been the vice presidential nominee in 2008 revealed to Robert Draper, a writer that she had been having candid talks with the members of her family about her options of making a White House bid in 2012.

The ex-governor from Alaska admits that she would have to prove herself. She states that it would be a hurdle of sorts and wistfully states that it was something that the other candidates wouldn’t have to think about. She seemed to be quite exasperated at the way her records appeared to come across and labeled them as a warped and perverted version of all that she had accomplished over a long period of twenty years.

Karl Rove, the political strategist of George. W. Bush and fellow Republican is not particularly averse of criticizing Palin either. He states that her new reality show about Alaska doesn’t really fit in and cannot definitely be translated into votes that will help her get into the Oval Office.

Palin is not exactly shying away from the media right now. She told a correspondent that she had made inquiries about Draper before agreeing to talk to him. The correspondent in question had done a TLC related cover story on her.

The story about her Presidential aspirations is almost 7,000 words long and includes her dependence on her tight inner circle of advisers who she hopes will help her navigate her way to the Presidential seat. Her distrust of the insiders in Washington comes through again and again as she talks about her underlying plans.
