WASHINGTON (AP) — Sarah Palin says it would be "absurd" for her not to consider running for president in 2012.
The former Alaska governor and the Republican vice presidential nominee in 2008 says she will run for president if she believes it's right for the country and right for her family.
Palin was asked on "Fox News Sunday" if she knows more today about domestic and foreign affairs than she did two years ago. Her response: "Well, I would hope so."
She says her focus has widened since she was governor of Alaska. Palin says she gets daily briefings by e-mail on domestic and foreign policy issues from advisers in Washington.
Palin appeared on "Fox News Sunday." She is a paid contributor to Fox News.
