Palin: I've Got The Fire In The Belly To Run For President

So, maybe that South Carolina thing wasn't just a thing after all.

"I think my problem is that I do have the fire in my belly," Palin said when Susteren asked if she’d run. "I am so adamantly supportive of the good, traditional things about America and our free enterprise system and I want to make sure America is put back on the right track and we will do that by defeating Obama in 2012. I have that fire in my belly.”

As she’s done in recent interviews, Palin cited her family as one of her main concerns in launching a political campaign.

“With a large family, understanding the huge amount of scrutiny and sacrifices that have to be made on my children’s part in order to see their mama run for president. But yeah, the fire in the belly, that’s there,” she said.

Andrew Sullivan emails to say, "Is Palin really that stupid that she thinks it's possible for combustion to take place inside one's stomach? Still, with this crazy woman there's no way to be sure until we see her gastrointestinal medical records. Will anyone be brave enough to join me in this call? I doubt it."

Palin has always said she wouldn't run if there was another solid, constitutional conservative in the field. What about Herman Cain?

From Kos' pollsters at PPP.

Herman Cain out polled Pawlenty and obliterated Huntsman on the first night of our Ohio GOP poll...may be more than a sideshow

Cain also narrowly outpolled Gingrich on the first night of our Wisconsin poll...candidates headed in different directions

In somewhat less exciting news...Tim Pawlenty is running for President.
