Former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin doesn't agree with former President Bill Clinton too often – unless it comes to criticizing President Barack Obama.
In an interview with CNN's “The Lead with Jake Tapper,” Palin recalled statements Clinton made during the Democratic primary, when he was stumping for his wife, Hillary, in the 2008 campaign.
Sarah Palin said she is trying to follow Pope Francis, but is wary of what she called the media's interpretation of his message.
"He's had some statements that to me sound kind of liberal, has taken me aback, has kind of surprised me," said Palin. But "unless I really dig deep into what his messaging is, and do my own homework, I’m not going to just trust what I hear in the media."
If Hillary Clinton ran for president, former GOP vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin would obviously not vote for her.
But she did sympathize with the former Secretary of State, and has some advice for any woman seeking the White House.
"She can expect that sexism, but you overcome it. You ignore it. You thicken your skin, you march forward with your agenda, your priorities, what you think is right," said Palin.

Washington (CNN) - Republican Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky restated his position on Tuesday that the attack on the United States compound in Benghazi–and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s response–should prohibit her from becoming president.
Paul, who has long been outspoken about the terrorist attack, told cadets at The Citadel, a military college in South Carolina, that the commander-in-chief should never be unwilling to send troops to protect the United States’ diplomatic missions.
