The Washington Post reported that Palin, on her first trip to India, said she is still mulling over a 2012 run.
Speaking to a hand-picked, elite audience of Indian business tycoons, lawmakers, Bollywood stars, lobbyists and socialites at a packed media conference in New Delhi, Palin deftly handled the question on everyone’s minds: whether she would throw her hat in the ring in 2012.
“I am thinking about it,” said Palin, who fielded at least three questions on the subject. “I don’t think there needs to be a rush . . . I want to find out who else is going to put their name forward in service.”
This speech has got very high marks from Jim Hoft, who posted the live-stream at Gateway Pundit.

“One thing I learned is that you cannot trust the mainstream media to accurately report on [your record and accomplishments],” she said. “You have to have the boldness, the courage to set the record straight yourself.”
She even accused Republicans of not defending their records vigorously enough.
“Too often, Republicans have the fighting instinct of sheep sometimes,” she said. When it comes to correcting the record, “I will put my foot down.
Rebutting a criticism often used against her, Palin said, “It’s not victimization, I’m not playing the victim card.
She’s been criticized on both sides for sticking up for herself – most recently on the Republican side, by Roger Ailes.
