RENO, Nev. — Sarah Palin launched a two-week run of tea party rallies Monday leading up to the election and teased supporters about a possible presidential run for herself, saying “we can see 2012 from our house.”

The remark came as the 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee – who has not publicly committed to seeking higher office – launched a 15-day Tea Party Express coast-to-coast campaign tour Monday, hoping to capitalize on government discontent and unify conservatives before the Nov. 2 election.

Headlining a rally outside county GOP headquarters, Palin told more than 500 people that common sense is an “endangered species” in Washington, D.C., and they should “keep the faith” as they go to the polls Nov. 2.

She endorsed Republican Sharron Angle, a tea party-backed candidate locked in a tight race in Nevada against Democratic Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid.

In a moment of self-deprecation, Palin told the crowd, “I can see November from my house,” a reference to a comedy skit over her qualifications for vice president when she said she could see Russia from Alaska.

Then, looking to the next presidential election two years from now, Palin said, “Mr. Obama, and your czars, you’re next because we can see 2012 from our house.”

The Tea Party Express tour has scheduled stops in 15 states before it ends Nov. 1 in New Hampshire.
