Palin Almost Endorses Gingrich

Sarah Palin told Fox News that if she were a South Carolinian, "I would vote for Newt" in the state's primary.

She said that a longer race meant more debates and more vetting of candidates, something that did not occur as it should have, in her view, with President Obama."

Said Palin: "I want to see this thing continue because iron sharpens iron, steel sharpens steel."
