Sarah Palin New Delhi, Mar 20 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has refused to turn down speculations she would be contesting in the 2012 presidential elections, during her visit to India.

Addressing the media following her speech entitled “My Vision for America”, Palin said that she has not made up her mind about running, The Guardian reports.

“I don’t think there needs to be a rush to get out there as a declared candidate. It’s a life-changing decision,” she said.

The paper quoted political analysts in the US and India as saying that Palin is seeking to bolster shaky foreign policy credentials before a new campaign.

Palin was reportedly invited to India to deliver the keynote speech at a conference organised by a domestic media group. She is accompanied by her husband Todd.

During her speech, Palin said that American and India shares many things, including religious tolerance, democratic traditions, a common struggle for freedom from the British empire, a commitment to “see terrorism defeated” and a concern over the rise of China.

“It is the largest democracies, not the world’s largest autocracy, [who] will lead the next century. I want peace on earth. That peacefulness and that prosperity comes with more freedoms,” Palin said.

Palin will fly to Israel at the end of her trip to India. (ANI)
