(VIDEO) Gov. Palin talks politics and dinner with the President

JUNEAU, Alaska — Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she will attend an exclusive club dinner in Washington this weekend because it could offer her an audience with President Obama.

In an impromptu, eight-minute meeting with reporters Wednesday outside the governor’s mansion, the former Republican vice presidential candidate also detailed reasons why she’s started her own political action committee and laughed off suggestions that she’s in line for an $11 million book deal.

“How often will I get an opportunity to have dinner with the president? I will take up that offer to do so,” Palin said.

Likewise, he said Iraqis were better off because of regime change spurred by the U.S. invasion, and that he would advise President-elect Barack Obama to maintain the Administration’s surveillance program and keep open the military prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.

Appearing on CBS’ Face The Nation, the vice president talked at length with host Bob Schieffer about the record of the administration, including its controversial torture program, national security, Saturday’s incursion by Israeli ground forces into the Gaza Strip, and the United States’ military intervention in Iraq.
