Palin Awaiting Sign From God to Run For President

Sarah Palin suggested during a television interview on Tuesday that she declined to enter the 2016 presidential race partly because God did not tell her to run.

Rawstory reported that Robin Roberts, the host of ABC’s “Good Morning America,” asked the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice-presidential nominee what could compel her to make a White House bid.

Palin replied: “What it would take would be knowing the American public would be ready for someone going rogue; you know, calling it like they see it, and having the experience that they see could be put to good use in the name of service. If I really felt that was there in terms of support, I would be more willing to serve.”

She continued: “And also, living my life, putting it in God’s hands, knowing you just never know what door may be opened … and if the door is open, I’m built to run through it, man; charge through it.”

Palin investigated the possibility of joining the Republican field of candidates this year but found insufficient support as she traveled the country making speeches. She frequently makes news by slamming President Obama and other Democrats on her Facebook page.

Palin was Arizona Sen. John McCain’s running mate when the GOP lost the 2008 election to then-Sen. Barack Obama.
