Palin Tells Limbaugh She Has "Nothing To Lose"

From CBS News' Scott Conroy:

(SCRANTON, PA.) - Before delivering her stump speech here in Joe Biden's hometown, Sarah Palin called in for her first interview with conservative radio icon Rush Limbaugh.

"Rush, I've got nothing to lose in this and I think America's got everything to gain by understanding the differences—the contrasts here between Obama and McCain," she said.

Unprompted by Limbaugh, Palin brought up her concerns about accusations of voter registration fraud.

"Speaking of some of those associations, let's talk quickly about ACORN and the unconscionable situation that we are facing right now with voter fraud, given the ties between Obama and ACORN and the money his campaign has sent them," Palin said.

"Obama has a responsibility to reign in ACORN and prove that he is willing to fight voter fraud....for shame if the mainstream media were to cover this one up."

Limbaugh asked Palin about whether she thought she had a political future beyond this election.

"That's a good question," she said. "No, because I am thinking about November 4th, and I am just so absolutely passionate about the job that we have in front of us from now to November 4th."
