Featured as the cover story in the latest “Newsweek” edition, the former Alaskan governor warned that the Republican field “is not set yet”.
"I'm not so egotistical as to believe that it has to be me, or it can only be me, to turn things around," Palin (47) told the magazine's Peter Boyer. "But I do believe that I can win."
“The people of America are desperate for positive change, and deserving of positive change, to get us off of this wrong track,” Palin said.
The former running mate of John McCain has not yet officially announced her intention to run for president next year.
During the Newsweek feature story, the reality TV star expressed frustration that many people tend to overlook her track record as Alaskan governor, over her personal life.
"Do people not understand why [John] McCain picked me?" Palin asked.
Speaking about the chance of President Barack Obama winning a second term she said there are "many, many qualified and able candidates out there" who can beat him.
Palin said her ultimate decision on whether or not to run for president would depend on her family.
