Palin: ‘Too Early’ to Make 2012 Decision

Sarah Palin won’t be announcing her decision about a presidential run anytime soon.

“I think it is too early to declare a candidacy,” Palin told Sean Hannity in an interview last night. “I think it’s too early for anyone.”

Palin said that even launching an exploratory committee at this stage was premature, telling Hannity that forming such a committee wasn’t “even on the radar” for her right now.

“I haven’t really run for anything conventionally. . . . I’ve just jumped in and done it when I’ve known it’s the right to thing to do,” Palin added.

Palin also had some kind words for Trump, saying that the media was “hammering” him on his birther views and forcing him to discuss it instead of other matters.
