Sarah Palin Will Run for President in 2012 Against Barack Obama "If It’s Right"

Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) — In a new interview with a radio show set to air next week, pro-life former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin says she will run for president against pro-abortion Barack Obama "if it’s right." Palin has been speaking before pro-life groups in an effort to build support from the movement.
In an interview with "100 Huntley Street," a daily Christian talk show based in Ontario, Palin said she "doesn’t know politically what is next for me."
Palin said she would consider a bid to "pursue" the presidency in 2012 if she believes it is the best thing to do to help average Americans with the challenges they face.
"If I can help provide some encouragement, some inspiration, some hope for them to get through their battles and make good decisions and get through a challenge, because that’s what we’ve been able to do, then I am going to stay focused on that," Palin said.
"Whether that’s on a local level in my own little town of Wasilla, or in the Oval Office, if it’s right, then we will pursue that," she added.
"I do believe that it is a wise thing for us to put our lives in our Creator’s hands," she said. "I put my life into God’s hands and say, I’m going to do the best that I can every day to bring positive change to people that perhaps need some help. Need opportunity, too."
"That’s what I’m going to do, day to day, not necessarily knowing what will bring to my family, to my country, to my life, in the next year, two years, three years down the road," she added.
The comments are considered the most serious since Palin said in February on Fox News that it would be "absurd" not to consider a potential presidential run.
Palin told the Christian radio show she and her family has had an "exciting and full ride" since her running with Senator John McCain in 2008.
