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.
