According to Sarah Palin, there’s still time to jump into what’s bound to be an “unconventional” presidential race.

“There is still time, Sean, and I think on both sides of the aisle I think you’re going to see people coming and going from this race,” she said on Sean Hannity’s Fox News show tonight. “And I’m still one of those still considering the time factor.”
When Hannity said the former Alaska governor would have to decide by November, at the latest, for legal reasons, she agreed — to an extent.
“You do, I mean legally you do,” she said. “But I do think Sean, this is going to be such an unconventional election cycle. … Mark my word, it is going to be an unconventional type of election process.”
She also weighed in on the Solyndra controversy, calling it one of “more and more” examples of the president’s “crony capitalism” “that will surface” and talked about her hopes for Thursday’s Republican presidential debate on Fox News, the network for which she’s a paid contributor.
“We have to make sure that our candidates are really articulating what their governing philosophy is. I want to know what these candidates’ records are. What have they been able to show on a local and a state level that they have done to create jobs?” she said. “I don’t want to just hear rhetoric about them putting up their dukes and fighting for the right things.”
One candidate that appears to be in her good graces: Texas Gov. Rick Perry.
“Perry is right when he talked about Obama’s foreign policies as it relates to Israel,” she said. “It’s been misguided, it’s been weak.”
