Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said Friday that her decision on wether or not to run for the Republican presidential nomination is "still weeks away."

But Palin said she would have an impact on the race even if she didn't run.

"I know that you can make a difference as an individual. I think I've proven that and I hop I can inspire others to know you don't need a title, you don't need to be in office to affect positive change," Palin said on Fox News, where she remains a paid contributor. 


"So wether I'm a candidate at some point or just a supporter of the right candidate, I look forward to seeing what these coming days, weeks, months bring."

The former governor and 2008 vice presidential nominee spoke to Sean Hannity from New Hampshire, the first-in-the-nation primary state where her East coast bus tour had stopped.

Asked about the reason for launching the tour, Palin said it was to celebrate American history.

"The whole purpose of this tour is to showcase America’s foundation, to talk about our constitution, to hand-out copies of our constitution, as we go along looking at the historical sites on this East coast, it is so beautiful so rich in history," she said.

"It’s so important that we be in touch with our nation’s history, with our past so that we can learn from it and so that we can move forward in these very heavy days in front of us successfully. We can only do that by learning more about our past.”

On an earlier stop in Boston, Palin gave an interesting version of some of that history.

Describing Paul Revere's midnight ride, she said:

He who warned the British that they weren't gonna be taking away our arms by ringing those bells and making sure as he's riding his horse through town to send those warning shots and bells.
