Bristol Palin weighed in on her political future on Thursday, telling Fox News' Sean Hannity that she wouldn't rule out the possibility of running for office one day.
When asked by the Fox host if she would leave the door open to follow in her mother Sarah Palin's footsteps, Palin said she was too young to eliminate the possibility just yet.
"I don't think I'd shut it completely yet," she said. "I'm only 21, but not any time soon."
Palin declined to state whether or not her mother would decide to run for office again. However, she said, her family is well prepared for the trials of campaign life.
"We all have tough skin. We're all strong. Our roots are very grounded," she said. "Whatever she does, we're going to support her."
Palin appeared on Hannity's show to talk about her new reality show, "Life's a Tripp," which chronicles her life as a single mother. According to Palin, she agreed to document her life on camera with hopes of showing what her life is really like.
"No matter what i'm doing, people are going to be talking about me," Palin, whose son Tripp will turn four this year. "I might as well have a platform and talk about things that are important to me, and show other girls that it's not easy."
While Palin was not as critical of Tripp's father as she has been on other recent occasions, she did admit she was "sad that Tripp doesn't have an active father figure."
Although the Lifetime series has yet to air, Palin has already expressed some regrets about how the show turned out.
"If I would have known it was my own name and so much in my life is gonna be shown on this show, I think I would reconsider it and think about it more," Palin said of the series.
Below, a slideshow of other politicians' kids:
Former Utah Governor Jon Huntsman's three oldest daughters made a name for themselves by tweeting from the campaign trail using the @jon2012girls account in 2012. Liddy, Mary Anne and Abby, all in their mid-twenties, have steadily gained followers since the campaign. Huntsman's daughters have also done a slew of television interviews, and have produced a few campaign videos of their own--most notably, a parody of Herman Cain's infamous smoking ad.
Arizona Senator John McCain's daughter was a staple on the campaign circuit in 2008, often blogging about life on the trail. Meghan, who has been vocal on issues like same-sex marriage and abstinence-only education, hoped to help her father connect with the younger generation of voters. The 27-year-old has since parlayed her campaign season fame into a career as a political commentator. She writes a column for the Daily Beast, released a campaign memoir in 2010 and was recently hired as an MSNBC contributor.
Former Massachusetts Governor Romney's five sons, who were a frequent sight on the campaign trail in 2008, have reemerged to support their father in his latest presidential bid. Oldest son Tagg has been giving interviews and courting young GOP donors, while middle child Josh meets with voters in Iowa. Craig, Mitt's youngest son, has also made a few appearances with his father.
Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), the son of libertarian Ron Paul, has been active in his father's latest presidential campaign. He often sends e-mails on behalf of the elder Paul, a congressman from Texas, and has made appearances on the trail to stump for his dad.
Former Pennsylvania Senator Rick Santorum's 20-year-old daughter--shown here during her father's unsuccessful re-election bid in 2006-- was a fixture on her dad's failed 2012 presidential run. Currently a student at the University of Dallas, Elizabeth took time off from her studies to meet with voters in Iowa, host events and give radio interviews.
In 2008, GOP Vice Presidential nominee Sarah Palin's family made a splash on the campaign trail. The former Alaska governor's five children--Track, Bristol, Willow, Piper, and Trig--often appeared at campaign events with their mom, even after news broke that teenage Bristol was pregnant.
Beau, Delaware's Attorney General, introduced his soon-to-be-VP dad Joe at the 2008 Democratic National Convention. His speech, which detailed the auto accident that killed his mother and sister, moved some delegates to tears.
Mike Huckabee's daughter, Sarah, took on a bigger role in her father's campaign than the usual routine of stump speeches and photo-ops. She acted as her dad's field director and top campaign adviser, and reportedly played an integral role in her dad's surprising Iowa caucus win.
Cate first started campaigning with her dad, a former Senator from North Carolina, while an undergrad at Princeton in 2004. During his 2008 campaign, she started making campaign stops on her own in key states like New Hampshire. After news of her father's affair broke, her role took a decidedly different turn as she stood by Edwards during his perp walk from a Winston-Salem courthouse.
The Bush Twins were notably absent on the trail in 2000, but became more publicly involved in George W. Bush's reelection campaign in 2004. They made appearances on their father's bus tour through swing states, and worked at the campaign's Arlington headquarters.
