American singer Tori Amos has vowed to run for office if former U.S. Vice President candidate Sarah Palin ever tries to get elected again.
Republican Palin's role in the 2008 White House race divided America, with many questioning her credentials - and the Spark hitmaker insists she'll run alongside the Alaskan if she ever eyes the vice presidential candidacy again.
She says, "If Palin runs again, I'm going to run on a Republican ticket. What I know about Middle Eastern policy could fit on a thumbnail, but I still know more than she does. You have to ask, how could a nation nearly vote in somebody who isn't qualified for the job?"
But Amos feels more positive about the future of her country now U.S. President Barack Obama is in power: "I'm a lot more hopeful. The (George W.) Bush years were really difficult times if you were an American who loved your country. Having someone now that so many people respect doesn't mean there aren't going to be problems, but so many problems have been left behind."
