Palin: I'm Not Stealing The Spotlight

Sarah Palin may not be taking part in the straw poll in Ames, Iowa on Saturday, but she's certainly not far away. Today, Palin paid a visit to the Iowa State Fair and denied taking attention away from her fellow Republicans—and potential rivals—who have already declared their candidacies for 2012. In a lengthy and candid conversation with Don Lemon, Palin also gives her thoughts on Rep. Michele Bachmann's "submissive" quote, Texas Gov. Rick Perry's impending candidacy, the S&P downgrade, and becoming a grandmother for the second time.
