>Sarah Palin this morning apologized for any votes she might have cost John McCain in his bid for the presidency, while downplaying aspirations to challenge Barack Obama in four years during an interview with MSNBC.
“If I cost John McCain even one vote, then I am sorry about that,” she said.
Palin said she could not even imagine running for national office in 2012, saying “2012 sounds so far off.”
The governor cited the economic crisis as the key factor for their loss, saying her selection as McCain’s running mate could in no way trump the country’s serious financial woes.
Palin said she will return to Alaska tonight and cannot wait to get back to working full time as Alaska’s governor.
