Watch out, world: Sarah Palin said she's open to running for political office again.

The former Alaska governor touched on a possible return to politics during a wide-ranging interview on CBS's "Sunday Morning." "This will always be home," she said of Wasilla, Ala. "I would know that I could always come back here."

"You're willing to run again?" the interviewer asked.

"I'd be willing. That's a good way to put it," Palin said.

The former Republican vice presidential nominee left the political scene after the GOP's White House defeat in 2008. Apart from endorsements here and there, her primary political outlet is Facebook, where she writes notes to 4.5 million followers. She mentioned no specific plans to run for office, but she didn't shy away from giving an opinion on the 2016 Republican presidential primary.

"Right now, I would say that fighter is Donald Trump, because he's got nothing to lose," Palin said. "He doesn't have to be bought or sold, obviously, especially when it comes to contributions. He is his own man."

Palin defended her no-holds-barred style.

"I think too many people worry about being too divisive, or they worry about the politically correct police who will tell them, you know, to 'sit down and shut up because you're politically incorrect.' I'm like, 'That's part of the problem in our country right now,' " she said.
