WASHINGTON (AP) - Sarah Palin says there's a double standard
when it comes to politicians who cry in public.
The former Alaska governor and possible 2012 Republican
presidential candidate says she would be "knocked a little bit"
if she cried while giving a speech. But Palin tells ABC's "Good
Morning America" that House speaker-in-waiting John Boehner gets a
"pass" when he cries in public.
Palin says that's OK, but that it makes women in politics work
harder and "be that much tougher."
Palin's comments came in an interview at her lakefront home in
She said she is giving a presidential run "prayerful
consideration." She says she discounts unfavorable poll numbers
and that she if she were to run, she would "be in it to win it."
