With a Clinton, a Bush and a Romney all seriously teasing presidential runs, Sarah Palin decided she might throw her hat in the ring as well.

The former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential candidate was asked if she’s interested in running for the White House. She responded “Of course.” while serving wild boar chili to the homeless in Las Vegas. She said, “Yeah, I mean, of course, when you have a servant’s heart, when you know that there is opportunity to do all you can to put yourself forward in the name of offering service, anybody would be interested.”

From Nevada, Palin headed to Iowa, where potential candidates are addressing a conservative forum. She is expected to speak Saturday evening.
