Is Sarah Palin planning a late bid?

Former Governor of Alaska promises to do “whatever I could to help”.

Sarah Palin has thrust herself back into the spotlight by claiming she could yet play an integral role in the Republican presidential nomination race. What exactly that role will entail is unclear but it seems Palin may be willing to run at a later date.

She said that in the event of a brokered convention, a situation whereby no candidate amasses enough delegates to win outright, she would "do whatever she could to help".

In an interview on Fox News, her offer was met with a tepid response from interviewer Eric Bolling.

Palin - For one, I think that it could get to that. ... If it had to be closed up today, the whole nominating process, then we could be looking at a brokered convention. ... Nobody is quite there yet, so I think that months from now, if that is the case, all bets are off as to who it will be, willing to offer up themselves up in their name in service to their country. I would do whatever I could to help

Bolling - That's, that's fantastic.

We all wait with bated breath for the specifics of her offer. (Go to 13:25 to see more)
