Speaking with ABC’s Charles Gibson, Sarah Palin granted her first interview since becoming the Republican vice presidential candidate. Palin recounted that she never hesitated to take the second spot on the ticket and that she’s ready for the job of vice president and, if necessary, president.
“On Jan. 20, when John McCain and I are sworn in, if we are so privileged to be elected to serve this country, we’ll be ready. I’m ready,” she said.
She said she never hesitated when asked by McCain to be on the Republican ticket.
“I answered him yes because I have the confidence in that readiness and knowing that you can’t blink, you have to be wired in a way of being so committed to the mission, the mission that we’re on, reform of this country and victory in the war, you can’t blink,” she said. “So I didn’t blink then even when asked to run as his running mate.”
