Palin says it's not too late for more entrants in GOP presidential race

Full Sarah Palin interview on Follow the Money

 And from the NY Post:

Sarah Palin is not convinced the Republican presidential candidate will come from the current pool of hopefuls, saying it was not too late for a new entrant to join the race.

The former Alaska governor told FOX News Radio, "Things can still be shaken up. Things can change in terms of candidates coming and going."

Palin said over the weekend that she was not enthusiastic about anyone in the current GOP field.
"I don't think that the field has to be considered set today -- set and locked up," she said. "Even beyond Iowa I think there is time for more shakeup."

"No one seems to have really grasped, except for Ron Paul, the gravity of our economic situation," she said. "And with Ron Paul, I don't agree with all of his foreign policy decisions."

Republican presidential candidate Newt Gingrich said he agreed with Palin's assessment.
"I would not be at all surprised to see one or two more candidates between now and the end of April," Gingrich told FOX News & Commentary. "The clock is running but the clock sure hasn't stopped."

And while Gingrich declined to name names, he did say that Palin could stir up the race.
"If somebody who had her level of popular support jumped in that would stir it up one more time," he said.

Palin said she also had concerns about the lack of focus on "values and character" from the GOP field. "It's not all about politics," she said. "It is all about value and character." (More here)
