Sarah Palin Says 'Anything Is Possible' When Asked About Possible Presidential Run (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

It's not too late to rule out Sarah Palin.

While attending a caucus in Wasilla, Alaska on Super Tuesday, the former Alaska governor and vice-presidential candidate told CNN's Paul Vercammen that "anything is possible" when it comes to a run for president.

VERCAMMEN: Sarah Palin for President, 2016 -- is it possible?

Gov. PALIN: Anything in this life, in this world, is possible. Anything is possible for an American. I don't discount any idea or plan at the point isn't in my control. Anything is possible.

VERCAMMEN: But would you seriously consider a run?

Gov. PALIN: I would seriously consider whatever I can do to help our country, to put things back on the right track. Our economy, the foreign policy, proposals we have to see put forward in order to secure our homeland, and the Americans especially, our brave fighting men and women overseas right now in places perhaps we shouldn't be right now, anything I can do to help, I will be willing to help."

Vercammen also asked Palin whether she might still consider jumping into this year's presidential race, if none of the current Republican candidates secure the 1,144 delegates required to win the party's nomination.

"As I say, anything is possible, and I don't close any doors that perhaps would be open out there," she said of a brokered convention. "So no, I wouldn't close that door, and my plan is to be at that convention."

Palin is a paid contributor to Fox News, so it was certainly a coup for CNN to get an interview with the former vice presidential candidate.

CNN Washington bureau chief Sam Feist told The Huffington Post's Michael Calderone that the network had "no expectations" that Palin would be in Alaska to vote Tuesday night. CNN sent one reporter, Vercammen, to Alaska and positioned him in Wasilla.

"I can't say there was an expectation that Sarah Palin would be there," Feist told The Huffington Post. "We were there to cover the caucus and Sarah Palin showed up."

Vercammen managed to speak to the former governor just after she cast her ballot in the state's Presidential Preference Poll. When she was done answering his questions, she called Vercammen "a lucky dude" for getting the interview.

We don't disagree, Sarah.

UPDATE: Palin told FOX Business Network that she voted for Newt Gingrich.
