Elizabeth Vargas and Sarah Palin

Sarah Palin has a new interview with ABC News' Elizabeth Vargas that will air on Good Morning America Thursday and 20/20 on Friday. Vargas asked Palin about her plans for 2012 if she doesn't win but Palin remained focused on the current election.

Elizabeth asked Palin, "But the point being that you haven't been so bruised by some of the double standard, the sexism on the campaign trail, to say, 'I've had it. I'm going back to Alaska."

Palin said it would be like waving a white flag if she returned to her home state. She said, "Absolutely not. I think that, if I were to give up and wave a white flag of surrender against some of the political shots that we've taken, that ... that would ... bring this whole ... I'm not doin' this for naught."

Sarah Palin is probably thinking about her political future with the McCain-Palin ticket down so far in the polls. However, she's not going to slip up and start talking about 2012 with the election just days away. Even so Palin saying she's "not doin' this for naught" possibly referring to a run in 2012 left a senior McCain aide speechless. John McCain and Sarah Palin appeared together in Pennsylvania yesterday and both remain optimistic about their chances on November 4th.
