Super Tuesday, 10 States four GOP candidates and the biggest story comes from Wasilla, Alaska, where Sarah Palin said that she “wouldn't close that door” if her name was included in possible nominations if there is a brokered convention.

CNN reporter Paul Vercammen was in Wasilla, Alaska which was one of the 10 States voting or caucusing on Super Tuesday, and after Palin cast her vote in the Alaska caucus she stopped to talk to CNN.

Vercammen was asked via CNN’s John King to ask Sarah Palin a question (it was relayed because of delay time), King “I would ask the governor how likely does she think there's a possibility of an open convention. And if there is an open convention and someone approached her and said, "Governor Palin, I want to place your name in nomination," would she stop them?”

Palin responded:

“As I say, anything is possible. And I don't close any doors that perhaps would be open out there. So, no, I wouldn't close that door. And my plan is to be at that convention.”
When asked about running in 2016 she again said “anything is possible”.

Sarah Palin was also asked who she voted for but would not answer CNN’s question, but she did tell Fox Business Network on Tuesday evening that she had cast a ballot for Newt Gingrich at her caucus site in Wasilla, Alaska.

Just when you thought the GOP presidential race couldn't get any stranger.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

    Romney we can have a national dialog on equity. If it's against Santorum, we can renew our commitment to separation of church and state. But she's just surreal and I don't want to listen to her for four months!

      it would be very very hard to listen to her incoherent ramblings for 4 months.

      But think of the bright side. If she is on the top of ticket, think how many Democrats we elect downticket.

    I suggested this in a recent comment. I mean they could not expose her in a normal campaign, right?

    Sure, she'll accept a nomination from an open convention, but when the campaigning gets rough, she'll be outtathere. Hear, hear for Queen Quitter!

    What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

    She would need a lot of crib notes on the palms of her hands, up her arms and everywhere else just to say a 1 word comment or response...

    •  She is a coward... (0+ / 0-)

      The reason she didn't enter the race when everyone else did is because the whole world knows she is a lousy, if not goofy, debater.  To be even more blunt, SHE CAN'T DEBATE!  Now she thinks she is going to walk into the convention and hijack the nomination from the others without ever having debated them even once!  Her inability to address the issues at large is her biggest weakness, which is why her camp demanded a change of rules when she debated Biden.  She will get absolutely no such courtesy if the other side sends her to debate Obama.  THIS IS THE PRESIDENCY we're talking about!  If her debating skills are as poor as we know they are, how can she have an intelligent conversation with ANY world leader?  She'll need someone whispering in her ear every 5 seconds.  She'll look even worse than a posessed Theoden at the whim of Saruman and his puppet watchdog Grima Wormtongue!

  •  Sarah, please close that door. (0+ / 0-)

    A re-emergence of Palin would be, uh, fascinating on many levels.  It would do Obama a world of good, but I simply could not stand it.
