Really, I think she’s done her bit already for the Democrats…
Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin has said that she would be honored to help President-elect Barack Obama in his new administration.
The Alaska governor said she would be willing to help if Mr Obama asked her for assistance on some of the issues she highlighted during this year’s campaign, such as energy or services for special-needs children.
“It would be my honor to assist and support our new president and the new administration,” she told CNN.
“I speak for other Republicans and Republican governors, also.
“They would be willing also to seize this opportunity that we have to progress this nation together, in a united front.”
However, she said she still had reservations about Mr Obama’s relationship with William Ayers.
“If anybody still wants to talk about it, I will,” she said.
“Because this is an unrepentant domestic terrorist who had campaigned to blow up, to destroy our Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol.
“That’s an association that still bothers me, and I think it’s fair to still talk about it.
“However, the campaign is over. That chapter is closed. Now is the time to move on and make sure all of us are doing all that we can to progress this nation.”
Her remarks comes as Mr Obama plans to appoint Republicans to key positions in his cabinet as part of a new bipartisan approach in Washington.
There’s speculation that Ms Palin will run for President in 2012. Among Republicans Ms Palin’s rating remains high, with 86 per cent support.
