Palin fans should not be discouraged, however. Most political observers would consider the former governor's response to be a typical "non-answer" to a question that few, if any, political figures would be crazy enough to answer in the affirmative this far in advance of the 2012 presidential race. Most pundits will simply intrpret her answer to mean that she's not shutting the door on a possible run.
Also in the report from the Chicago Tribune's entertainment page is this exchange between Oprah and Sarah:
Oprah: Everybody's waiting on the Levi question I know.More here.
Palin: I hear he goes by the name Ricky Hollywood now. If that's the case, we don't want to mess up this gig he's got going---kind of this aspiring porn. Some of the things he's got going, it's kind of heartbreaking.
Oprah: "The Playgirl" centerfold.
Palin: I call that porn, yes. He's quite busy with his media tours and he hasn't seen the baby for a while. Levi forever will be the father of this baby, and I continue to hope for the best and pray for the baby.
