Bristol Palin to run for office?

(CNN) – Forget about Sarah. The next Palin to hold elective office just might be Bristol Palin.

The famous daughter of the former vice presidential candidate told E! News she "probably" will run for office some day if a pressing problem needs to be addressed.

"If I saw something that needed to be changed, then I would step up to the plate and do something about it," the former dancing with the Stars contestant said.

As for the other politician in the family, the younger Palin is urging her mom to run for president.

"I think she would be a wonderful president, and I still think that she should run," Bristol said. "She's just so common-sense conservative….just, 'Here's what we've gotta do and this is how we're gonna do it,' and she brings a whole 'nother aspect to politics because she's a mom, because she runs a household, and I just think she's really smart."

    "I had always assumed that our lawmakers had prepared for their careers by earning college degrees in something that would relate, such as law or political science."

    Given where we are as a country – perhaps that's the problem – too many poly sci or lawyers running the country. Why don't we start electing people who have actually done something in life? How about electing some successful business people? Engineers?

    A "whole 'NOTHER aspect?" Yes this woman is defintely qualified for public office... as much as Sarah Palin was to be #2 in a Republican White House... then again, The White House has also had its idiots live in it, like Dubya, Cheney (who shot his friend in the face), Nixon, Reagan, & Hoover... and then we wonder why Conservatives love the Republican Party....
