Palin May Run 'In the Name of Service'

WASHINGTON (AP) — Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she'll announce her intentions for the White House in late August or early September.

Palin told Fox News' Sean Hannity Wednesday night that she thinks she could win a campaign against President Barack Obama, a sentiment first reported in a Newsweek cover story.

Palin says she would campaign for a candidate with "good executive experience" and a "servant's heart" who wasn't so "obsessively partisan that they can't just do what's right." At the moment, though, she says she doesn't see that candidate in the Republican field.

Palin says she's thinking about offering herself up "in the name of service," confident that she has "common sense, fiscally conservative, pro-private sector policy experience and ideas that can be put to good work for this country."
