Sarah Palin told an ABC News reporter at a soup kitchen on Thursday that she is “interested” in the possibility of a presidential run in 2016.
She said: “Yeah, I mean, 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.”
Sarah Palin was serving wild boar chili to the homeless at the Salvation Army in Las Vegas when she talked to the reporter about the possible run. She was in the city for the Shooting, Hunting, and Outdoor Trade Show.

Palin is planning on attending the upcoming Iowa Freedom Summit. In addition to Palin’s appearance, other possible 2016 GOP contenders set to appear including Chris Christie, Scott Walker, Ted Cruz, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, and Ben Carson.
Palin also expressed to ABC News’ Neal Karlinsky a desire to see a female president. She said: “We definitely had enough of seeing that — America has had enough of seeing that — sign on the Oval Office door saying, ‘No Girls Allowed.’ I know that. It doesn’t necessarily have to be me, though, but no, America is definitely ready for real change.”
She also commented on the “Ready for Hillary” and the “Ready for Warren” campaigns: “[I] wonder what are our friends in the White House think when their peeps are out there trucking around chirping we are ready for change, for someone else. You wonder what they think they are going to accomplish in the next two years if even their own people are going, ‘Man, this isn’t working. We need change.”

Palin expressed dismay at the status quo and said that she would like to see “new energy” take on Hillary Clinton:
That competition in the GOP … will surface that candidate who can take on Hillary, be ready for Hillary and show the nation what it is going to take to get the country back on the right track. Because we can’t afford status quo, because status quo lately has been Latin for, ‘We are getting screwed,’ and status quo has got to go.
