Iowa lawmaker predicts Palin run for White House

JOHNSTON, Iowa - December 30, 2009

U.S. Rep. Steve King said Tuesday he initially thought Palin ended her political career when she resigned as governor last summer. But he said during a taping of an Iowa Public Television show that she's now in a far stronger position to succeed.

King says her book-signing tour has brought her enormous attention, and he complimented her political instincts.

Palin has only been in Iowa once since the election, for a book-signing event in Sioux City.

King says there would be plenty of time for Palin to mount a campaign.
