Palin "chuckled" when he broached the idea, but then gave Beck his props: "I can envision a couple of different combinations, if ever I were to be in a position to really even seriously consider running for anything in the future, and I'm not there yet," Palin told Newsmax. "But Glenn Beck I have great respect for. He's a hoot. He gets his message across in such a clever way. And he's so bold â I have to respect that. He calls it like he sees it, and he's very, very, very effective."
