WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Gov. Sarah Palin said Wednesday that she would be honored to help President-elect Barack Obama in his new administration, even if he did hang around with an "unrepentant domestic terrorist."

The Alaska governor said in an interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer that she would be willing to help if Obama asked her for assistance on some of the issues she highlighted during this year's campaign, such as energy or services for special-needs children.

"It would be my honor to assist and support our new president and the new administration," said Palin, whom Sen. John McCain chose as his running mate in August.

"I speak for other Republicans and Republican governors, also," she said.

"They would be willing also to seize this opportunity that we have to progress this nation together, in a united front."

But asked moments later about some of the tough rhetoric she hurled from the stump, she said she was "still concerned" about Obama's ties to former Weather Underground member-turned-Chicago college professor William Ayers. video.gifWatch Palin discuss how she could help Obama »

"If anybody still wants to talk about it, I will," she said. "Because this is an unrepentant domestic terrorist who had campaigned to blow up, to destroy our Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol.

"That's an association that still bothers me, and I think it's fair to still talk about it," she continued.

"However, the campaign is over. That chapter is closed. Now is the time to move on and make sure all of us are doing all that we can to progress this nation." video.gifWatch Palin talk about Ayers »

Palin was attending the annual Republican Governors Association convention in Miami, Florida. She was interviewed for CNN's "The Situation Room" -- the latest of several high-profile appearances for the ex-VP candidate. She will also appear Wednesday night on CNN's "Larry King Live."

View PostDidn't she already do more than her share for himwink.gif



"The gift that keeps on giving". Someone here posted it back then. I thought the left was being hard on her. I thought that it was going to create a huge backlash---then I actually started listening to the utter drivel coming out of her mouth

Now excuse me while I join her in helping to progress the nation.

View PostI wonder if she can appoint herself to be Senator, if the current incumbent is forced to resign. Would Alaska law require a special election, or would she be able to serve out Stevens' term?


Yes, she could appoint herself to the Senate. Alaska law says that is the way it works.

But Ted Stevens is now down in that recount, and it looks like the absentee ballots are coming in highly from the democrat side, as they pushed for early voting in that race, like across the country.
