Sarah Palin Wants To Be Secretary Of Energy, And Then Disband That Federal Department


Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin stuns CNN's Jake Tapper with her answer to his question about whether she might be interested in serving in a Republican presidential cabinet.

SARAH PALIN: I think a lot about the department of energy.

Energy is my baby: oil and gas and minerals, that God dumped on this part of the earth for mankind's use instead of us relying on unfriendly nations to import their resources. I think a lot about the department of energy, and if I were head of that, I would get rid of it, and let the states have more control of the lands that are within their boundaries... If I were in charge of that, it would be a short term job, but it would be really great.
