    Default ABC News - Sarah Palin vows to remain player in 2012: 'Not doing this for naught'

    Sarah Palin Vows to Remain Player in 2012: 'Not Doing This For Naught'

    John McCain's Vice Presidential Running Mate Remains Focused on Election Day Win

    By RUSSELL GOLDMAN

    Oct. 29, 2008

    Gov. Sarah Palin suggested that if the Republican ticket is defeated on Tuesday she expects to be a player in the next election four years from now, saying "I'm not doing this for naught."

    In an interview with ABC News' Elizabeth Vargas, the Republican vice-presidential nominee was asked about 2012, whether she was discouraged by the daily attacks on the campaign trail, and would instead pack it in and return to her home state of Alaska.

    "I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we've taken, that would bring this whole & I'm not doing this for naught," Palin said.

    Palin said she believed in the current GOP ticket and that she was "thinking that it's going to go our way on Tuesday, Nov. 4. I truly believe that the wisdom of the people will be revealed on that day," she said.

    But with less than a week before Election Day, her comments may add to reported feelings within the McCain campaign that as the Republicans trail in the polls Palin has looked to boost her own political fortunes rather than fully support McCain's bid for the presidency.

    Some sources within the campaign have suggested that Palin's series of public statements that differ from McCain and seem to come as a surprise to the campaign are evidence of her "going rogue."

    The Alaska governor has said publicly that the campaign should have continued to fight in Michigan after McCain pulled out of the race there and she condemned the use of negative robocalls, even when McCain publicly approved of them.

    Palin surprised the campaign last week when she said her medical records would be released, even though the campaign had not authorized them to be made public. Those records have yet to be made public.

    When nominated in September at the Republican National Convention, Palin called herself a "pitbull" and quickly assumed the position of campaign attack dog, aggressively attacking Sen. Barack Obama's relationships and questioning his judgment.

    Sarah Palin Says Obama Not Un-American

    Those attacks have come under increased scrutiny, as Palin has routinely linked Obama with 1960s radical Bill Ayers and today linked Obama to Rashid Khalidi, a Columbia University professor and former PLO associate. Palin has also accused the Democrat of promoting socialism.

    Vargas asked Palin if she continued to reference Obama's relationships in order to suggest he was "un-American," an historically loaded term.
    Palin said she was not calling Obama "un-American," but was calling attention to his record.

    "[I'm] not calling him un-American. There is nothing wrong, though, with calling someone out on their record, their associations& The association issue here, it's not mean spirited. It's not negative campaigning. It's important and fair to the electorate."

    In her interview with Vargas, Palin stepped back from comments she made Tuesday in Ohio in which she suggested that if elected, Obama would rewrite the Constitution to allow courts to confiscate private property.

    "[I am] asking the question, what do his comments, from back there in 2001, candid comments that are caught on tape, what do they suggest in terms of his idea for future Supreme Court Justices, and perhaps for being able to reach some of the goals that it seems that he has in terms of redistributing other people's wealth& But not an explicit allegation like that," she said.

    Palin was referring to a 2001 radio interview Obama gave regarding the Supreme Court when he said, "The Supreme Court never ventured into the issues of redistribution of wealth and sort of more basic issues of political and economic justice in this society. And to that extent, as radical as I think people tried to characterize the Warren Court, it wasn't that radical. It didn't break free from the essential constraints that were placed by the founding fathers in the Constitution, as least as it's been interpreted."

    Transcript Excerpts from Elizabeth Vargas' Interview with Gov. Sarah Palin

    '20/20' Co-Anchor Elizabeth Vargas Speaks With Alaska Governor on Campaign Trail

    Oct. 29, 2008—

    The following is a transcript excerpt from Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin's interview with "20/20" co-anchor Elizabeth Vargas Oct. 29, 2008.

    ELIZABETH VARGAS: If it doesn't go your way on Tuesday ... 2012?

    GOV SARAH PALIN:
    I'm just ... thinkin' that it's gonna go our way on Tuesday, November 4. I truly believe that the wisdom of ... of the people will be revealed on that day. As they enter that voting booth, they will understand the stark contrast between the two tickets. ...

    VARGAS:
    But the point being that you haven't been so bruised by some of the double standard, the sexism on the campaign trail, to say, "I've had it. I'm going back to Alaska."

    PALIN:
    Absolutely not. I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we've taken, that ... that would ... bring this whole ... I'm not doin' this for naught.

    VARGAS:
    You seemed to imply last night in a speech that Sen. Obama, if given the chance, would rewrite the Constitution to allow the courts to confiscate private property. Is that what you meant to say?

    PALIN:
    No. Asking the question, what do his comments, from back there in 2001, candid comments that are caught on tape, what do they suggest in, in terms of his idea for future Supreme Court justices, and perhaps for ... he being able to reach some of the goals that it seems that he has, in terms of redistributing other people's wealth, hard-earned money, according to his priorities. But, no, not ... not an explicit allegation like that. No.

    VARGAS:
    He did ... 'cause I did read that interview. He didn't advocate using the courts. He actually was quoted as saying he thought the courts were not a good way to redistribute any kind of socioeconomic ...

    PALIN:
    Well, I think that people can ... can read the comments and hear the comments that he made, because again, the, the refreshing thing about that tape being revealed ... from 2001... it's candidness there. It's not ... it didn't seem to be his typical scripted, kinda ... rhetorical message read off a TelePrompter. There it was, where he talked about, though, his desire, it sounded like, for redistributing wealth.
    But ... even more telling when that, of course, was the candor that he showed in his conversation that he had with Joe the Plumber, where he outright said, in plain language, that, that ideal there, that he has about ... he calls it the spreading of the wealth. As I talked about in my speech, Joe Biden calling higher taxes patriotic. But to a lot of people, including Joe, Joe the Plumber, they said that that suggested socialism, and now isn't the time to experiment with that. So it's very important that American voters have all the information that they can, based on somebody's record and candid comments, so that they ... we can figure out, where would that candidate try to take the nation?

    Sarah Palin Has Sharp Words for Barack Obama

    VARGAS: But when you use words like socialism, or, or say he's palling around with terrorists or hanging out with a Palestinian professor, which you just said in the rally ... you seem to be saying that he is un-American somehow ...

    PALIN:
    Not a ...

    VARGAS:
    ... or might be dangerous somehow.

    PALIN:
    Not ... not at all. Not, not calling him un-American. There is nothing wrong, though, with calling someone out on their record, their associations. In fact, Barack Obama challenged John McCain to do just that. He said, "If you have an issue with my association ... " with Bill Ayers, is what he said, that unrepentant domestic terrorist that campaigned to bomb our own United States Capitol and Pentagon, he said, "Talk to me about it in the debate." He, he called him out on it. So, McCain, he's not afraid of a fight. He's, you know, he, he's ready to do whatever he can to put his country first. So, he talked about it. The association, issue here, it's not mean-spirited. It's not negative campaigning. It's important and fair to the electorate.

    VARGAS:
    But, set the record straight. Do you think Senator Obama is as patriotic, as American, as honorable as John McCain?

    PALIN:
    I am sure that Senator Obama, ... cares as much for this country as McCain does. Now, McCain has a strong, solid track record of his ... I think, some manifestations of the opportunities that he's had to prove that patriotism, and that love for country, but no. A ... and I don't want anybody to ever put words in my mouth, and, and, you know, I'll fight hard against any kind of false allegation in terms of what I've said or what I've meant. I'm ... I'm, for the record, stating, no, that, I'm not calling someone out on their love of country or level of patriotism.

    I am so f*cking sick of Joe the Plumber, I hope Palin takes him back to Alaska with her after Tuesday's landslide win for Obama.

    I hope the political elite in Washington shut this bitch out after Nov 4 such that she can't even get a job as a White House janitor.

    I am hoping she will break the republican party into two seperate factions...the regular repubs and the ultra conservative ones...that way they will be at odds with each other and ensure a democratic landslide!

    Until I have proof this woman has formed and communicated one complete, coherent thought, I am not giving her an ounce of credibility.

    Palin is nothing more than a powerhungry parrot who is ready to peck the pirate she is perching on.

    ... and everything else she said was more of the same bullshit rhetoric we've been hearing since she found her hairy, surprised ass on the presidential ticket. She's an opportunistic, mealy-mouthed whack job.
