WASHINGTON (Reuters) Whether or not Republican presidential candidate John McCain is elected next week, his running mate, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, plans to remain on the U.S. national political scene, ABC News reported on Wednesday.

Asked about 2012, whether she was discouraged by daily attacks on the campaign trail and whether she would return home to Alaska, the Republican vice presidential nominee signaled that she expects to be a player in the next presidential election cycle.

"I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we've taken ... I'm not doing this for naught," Palin told ABC News in a taped interview airing on Thursday.

A campaign spokesperson traveling with Palin in Indiana said the vice presidential nominee was talking about being focused on winning on November 4 and is not going to quit despite what the critics have said.

With less than a week before Election Day, Palin told ABC that she believes in the current Republican presidential ticket and that she thinks "it's going to go our way on Tuesday, November 4."

"I truly believe that the wisdom of the people will be revealed on that day," she said.

Palin has energized the Republican base of supporters. But the Alaska governor has come under withering criticism on a variety of issues, including whether she is qualified to become vice president.

Don't think so.

If McCain fails this go round the GOP will hopefully realize that a centrist is not going to win them elections.

Which is why if McCain wins, yes he may be slightly less of the two evils but we as a movement are probably looking at 12 years to have any wins within the GOP.

Teddy Kennedy is back in D.C despite his chemo treatments or because of the same, Senator Byrd is almost 90, Ted Stevens just got slapped on the wrist for his equivilencies to Sherman Adams and TEN vicuna coats... so if GENTLEMAN JOHHNY McCAIN goes back to the Senate to lord it over the newbies inside the same said glorious institution, could he at the wise age of 75 or 76 dote on a to be POTUS Palin happily?
We must ask who the team player is to be if SOMEONE is grooming our Divine Sarah!

Maybe he's having second thoughts, and realizes that he REALLY just doesn't want the job. :D

"Of course I'm cheering on Ron Paul because he is exposing the nature of the whole system. He is not running for president. He is running against the presidency as it is currently understood. Ultimately, however, I do not believe that politics offers a way out. What we need is a new consciousness concerning the idea of human liberty." -- Lew Rockwell
