Sarah Palin Will Run In 2012 'If There’s Nobody Else To Do It'

ABC News' Mary Bruce reports:

In an interview to air tonight on “Entertainment Tonight,” Sarah Palin admitted there’s a possibility she will run for president in 2012 saying, "if there's nobody else to do it, then of course I would believe that we should do this."

If, however, there is a candidate "who can do the job," Palin said they would have her full support.

On deciding whether or not to run, the former Alaska governor told Entertainment Tonight, “it's going to entail a discussion with my family [and] a real close look at the lay of the land, to consider whether there are those with that common sense, conservative, pro-Constitution passion, whether there are already candidates out there who can do the job … or whether there's nobody willing to do it, to make the tough choices and not care what the critics are going to say about you, just going forward according to what I think the priorities should be."

Not all in the Republican party agree that Palin is ready for a run at the White House. Karl Rove questioned this week if she has the "gravitas" for a presidential run and Sen. John McCain said it was too early to endorse his 2008 running mate.
