November 25, 2010 01:25

WASHINGTON — US President Barack Obama said Tuesday he respects Sarah Palin's political skills but has not thought about the possibility of facing the former Republican vice presidential candidate in the 2012 presidential election.

Obama acknowledged that Palin "has a strong base of support in the Republican Party," but he said he spends most of his time focused on being "the best possible president."

In an interview taped Tuesday with ABC's Barbara Walters, the president said that if he does a good job, "the politics will take care of itself."
