Sarah Palin Is "Interested" in Running for President in the 2016 Election

So there's that.

While serving meals at a homeless shelter in Las Vegas this week, former Vice Presidential candidate Sarah Palin told an ABC News reporter (opens in new tab) that she would, "of course," be interested in participating in the 2016 Presidential election. 

"Yeah, I mean, of course, when you have a servant's heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested," she said. 

It felt a bit like she was putting out feelers, to potential voters and financial backers alike, perhaps hoping to duplicate the groundswell of support that led to her announcement as John McCain's Vice Presidential pick in 2008.

An election that revolves around the so-far rumored candidates—Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, and Sarah Palin—would be an amazing moment for women. Maybe we'll just leave the men out of it altogether this time around.
