New York, May 30: Former Republican presidential candidate John McCain has said former Alaska governor Sarah Palin can defeat Obama in the 2012 elections.
"She can. Now, whether she will or not, whether she''ll even run or not, I don''t know," he said.
McCain comments came in the wake of Palin kickstarting a national bus tour from Washington, which has stoked speculation of her entering the bid.
He said that though Palin''s opponents attacked her mercilessly, she continue to inspire great passion among her supporters, particularly Republicans.
