Palin Admits Who She'd Vote for in S.C. -- Newt Gingrich


"I want to see this thing continue because iron sharpens iron."

Just a week after Alaska's "First Dude" -- Todd Palin -- came out and endorsed Newt Gingrich, is Sarah Palin following suit? Not quite. But she did come close when she told Sean Hannity on Tuesday night that she would vote for Gingrich in the South Carolina primary.

"I do think that Newt is the one who won the debate, if you will, because Newt came out just like South Carolina's own Smokin' Joe Frazier," she told Hannity. "He came out there swinging, talking about work. Talking about jobs. Talking about work ethic."

She continued:

If I were a South Carolinian -- and each one of these primaries and caucuses are different, Sean -- I want to see this thing continue because iron sharpens iron. Steel sharpens steel. These guys are getting better in their debates. ... If I had to vote in South Carolina, in order to keep this thing going, I'd vote for Newt. And I would want things to continue. More debates, more vetting of candidates. Because we know the mistake made in our country four years ago, with having a candidate that was not vetted to the degree he should have been.
