Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin (R) continued to tease a potential bid for the Republican nomination for president this week leading up to a Saturday address at the Iowa Freedom Summit.
Palin characterized herself as having a "servant's heart" in a Thursday interview with ABC News, saying she's "had enough" of seeing a "sign on the Oval Office door saying, 'No Girls Allowed.'"
“Of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested,” she said.
The Washington Post followed up with Palin on Friday in Des Moines.
“You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested," she told the Post. "As I said yesterday, I’m really interested in the opportunity to serve at some point.”
The 2008 vice presidential candidate has also weighed in on a potential challenger for the Republican bid, shrugging off 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney after learning he may pursue a third bid.
“We need new energy. We need new blood. We need new ideas," Palin said.
