Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Sunday the country needs change in the White House, but she wouldn’t indicate whether she will try to become the first female president in the country’s history.

“We’ve got to turn things around in 2012,” Mrs. Palin, the 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate, told Fox News Sunday. “There’s a need for real, positive change.”

Referring to herself hypothetically as “President Palin,” she said she would fix the economy by cutting taxes and supporting Rep. Paul Ryan’s Medicare plan, if she decides to run and gets elected.

“You try telling the bump-in-the-road analogy to families out there trying to keep their homes,” she said. “The people will tell you it’s not a bump in the road — it’s a brick wall.”

She also would promote domestic drilling for oil.

“It does come down to drill, baby, drill,” she said. “Energy is the key to prosperity.”
