Sarah Palin 'definitely knows' if she will run for president, Bristol says


Sarah Palin knows if she will make a run for the White House, but since that discussion happened at the Palins' Wasilla home, eldest daughter Bristol says it's going to stay there until the hockey mom is ready to make an announcement.

Bristol on Tuesday continued her tour to promote her memoir, "Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far," which came out last week. While on shows like "Extra" and several Fox News programs, Bristol continued to criticize the father of her child, Levi Johnston, while praising her famous mother.

"She's a great politician, and she would be awesome for our country," Bristol said when asked if her mother should try to be the next president.

When asked on "Extra" if she knew whether Palin would run in 2012, Bristol said, "Of course", but stopped short of giving any breaking news.

"What's talked about at our dinner table is going to stay there," Bristol told Jerry Penacoli, adding that her mom is "awesome" and would beat anyone.

The mother and daughter will sign books Wednesday at the Mall of America in Minnesota.

Bristol Palin's autobiography is rising in the Amazon charts. It's currently #11 on their biographies list, just above Chelsea Handler's three-year-old tome "Are You There, Vodka? It's Me, Chelsea."
