Sarah Palin: My Endorsement "Doesn't Amount To A Hill Of Beans"

When asked if she has a candidate she would like to endorse in the 2012 GOP field, Fmr. Gov. Sarah Palin (R-Alaska) said she hasn't made up her mind as of now, and that it wouldn't matter.
Palin said her endorsement would amount to a "hill of a beans."

"I think today, my personal endorsement, probably doesn't amount to a hill of beans today, at this point in the race," Palin said on FOX News' "Hannity" program.

Palin said later in the race perhaps her endorsement may have more weight, but admitted at this moment it doesn't matter. Referring to herself as a pundit, Palin said voters have to do their homework and shouldn't rely on the endorsement.

"I am leaning toward the candidate who can best articulate he being the antithesis of Barack Obama. He understanding what it takes to reform our country and not allow it to be fundamentally transformed away from the exceptionalism that is America. But, he who can promise to because he has experience in doing so," Palin said when asked what kind of candidate she would endorse. Transcript below.

Sarah Palin: "I think today, my personal endorsement, probably doesn't amount to a hill of beans today, at this point in the race."

Sean Hannity, FOX News: "I'm not sure about that."

Palin: "Maybe as the weeks progress it would become a little more significant. But, right now, no. I don't really cast any vote based on anybody else's endorsement of a candidate. I have great respect for the wisdom of the people. I have great respect --"

Hannity: "I wouldn't minimize the impact of an endorsement."

Palin: "On your show, especially. The wisdom of the people. The American voter, doing their own homework, knowing who these candidates are, what they represent, what their experience provides them. They will be making up their own mind, and I honestly don't think that a pundit at this point, and their personal endorsement, again, really amounts to a hill of beans."
