(Newser) – "I do believe I can win" a national election, Sarah Palin has declared to Newsweek. The latest teaser from Palin seems to indicate that she's about to go for the big shebang, but don't take that as an announcement that she's decided to run for the presidency—yet. “I think Bristol has made up her mind, and Bristol wants me to run for president,” Palin said. “But we’re still thinking about it.
