Palin defends herself in first interview as VP candidate

In her first interview since becoming the Republican vice presidential candidate, Sarah Palin said Thursday that she never hesitated to take the spot on the ticket and that she's ready for the job of vice president and, if necessary, president. Palin also backed off an earlier comment that the Iraq war is a mission from God and echoed running mate John McCain on NATO membership for Ukraine and Georgia even against Russia's objections.
