New York, Sept.24 (ANI): Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has said that she might consider running for US president in 2012 if no one else steps to the plate.

Asked what "would be a reason to run" during an interview, and Fox News quoted Palin, as saying: "A reason to run is if nobody else were to step up with the solutions that are needed to get the economy back on the right track and to be so committed to our national security that they are going to do all that they can, including fighting those on the extreme left who seem to want to dismantle some of our national security tools that we have in place."

"If nobody else wanted to step up, I would offer myself up in the name of service to the public," Palin added.

"But I also know that anybody - anybody - can make a huge difference in this country without a title, without an office, just being out there as an advocate for solutions that can work to get the country on the right track. And that's where I am now," she said.alin said she is currently in a "comfortable place" and said that if "my candidacy wasn't good for my family, if it wasn't good for the common sense conservative agenda that needs to be adhered to, then certainly I wouldn't run."

"I don't need the title," she insisted. "I don't need ... any kind of self-gratification or personal power- seeking of my own to run for office." (ANI)
