Sarah Palin will not run for president



Published: Wed, October 5, 2011 @ 7:34 p.m.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said today she will not run for president, leaving little doubt that the eventual Republican nominee will come from the current field of contenders.

After months of leaving her fans guessing, Palin said in a statement that she and her husband Todd "devote ourselves to God, family and country." She said her decision maintains that order.

Palin sent the statement to supporters. She told conservative radio host Mark Levin that she would not consider a third-party candidacy because it would assure President Barack Obama's re-election.

Sen. John McCain plucked Palin from relative obscurity in 2008 by naming her as his running mate. She electrified Republican activists for a while, delivering a well-received speech at the GOP national convention. But Palin later seemed overwhelmed by the national spotlight, faltering at times in televised interviews even when asked straightforward questions.

John McCain would be President now had he not picked her to be his VP running mate. He and his handlers did not do a proper vetting on this 3rd party extremist.
