WASHINGTON (CNN) — Gov. Sarah Palin said Wednesday that she would be honored to help President-Gov. Sarah Palin says she will support President-elect Barack Obama and his new administration.elect Barack Obama in his new administration, even if he did hang around with an “unrepentant domestic terrorist.”

Gov. Sarah Palin says she will support President-elect Barack Obama and his new administration.

The Alaska governor said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer that she would be willing to help if Obama asked her for assistance on some of the issues she highlighted during this year’s campaign, such as energy or services for special-needs children.

“It would be my honor to assist and support our new president and the new administration,” said Palin, whom Sen. John McCain chose as his running mate in August.

“I speak for other Republicans and Republican governors, also,” she said.

“They would be willing also to seize this opportunity that we have to progress this nation together, in a united front.”

But asked moments later about some of the tough rhetoric she hurled from the stump, she said she was “still concerned” about Obama’s ties to former Weather Underground member-turned-Chicago college professor William Ayers. Video Watch Palin discuss how she could help Obama »


McClellan endorses Barack Obama

This just in: Scott McClellan, President Bush’s former press secretary, announced Thursday that he is endorsing Barack Obama for president.

McClellan is the second former Bush administration official this week to come out in support of the Democratic presidential candidate. Former Secretary of State Colin L. Powell announced his endorsement last weekend.

McClellan’s news, which he shared during a taping of comedian D.L. Hughley’s new show on CNN, doesn’t come as a huge surprise. McClellan, after all, drew ire from Republicans earlier this year when he published a tell-all book about his time in White House. The book, “What Happened: Inside the Bush White House and Washington’s Culture of Deception,” was highly critical of Bush and his handling of the war in Iraq, which McClellan called “a serious strategic blunder.”

The former aide told Hughley he planned to vote for Obama because he is the candidate most likely to change Washington.

Today, I have good news and bad news. It’s Arnold’s birthday. No, that’s not the good news.

The good news is that over 28,000 of you stepped up and signed the petition to Schwarzenegger. The same day, he delayed signing the executive order that would have put the policy into effect.
