From an unbroadcast interview on the financial crisis with CNBC:

Palin: “For close to a week, they were my next-door neighbors in New York City, and I could actually see Wall Street from from my hotel room”

Q: “Explain why that enhances your economic policy credentials.”

A: “Well, it certainly does because our – our next door neighbors were investors. They were in the same city in which I met Dr. Kissinger. And there in Wall Street…”

Q: “Have you ever been involved with any negotiations, for example, with investors”?

A: “We have several banks in Alaska. We, we do, it’s very important when you consider even economic issues with Wall Street as A.K.G insurance and the Lehman Sisters rear their heads and we’re renegades. They’re just there. And we’re ill about this position that we have been put in where it is the taxpayers looking to bail out. But ultimately what the bailout does is help those who are concerned about the healthcare reform that is needed to help shore up our economy. And that’s scary.”
