Bristol Palin on The View: ‘Not at All' Hard to Stay a Virgin (Video)

The 20-year-old shows new savvy in dodging questions Thursday on the talk show regarding Sarah Palin’s possible Presidential run (and also talks about sex with Barbara Walters).

Bristol Palin appeared on ABC’s The View Thursday, but she wasn’t about to reveal her mother’s possible Presidential plans.

Barbara Walters asked the 20-year-old, currently promoting a book, when her mother might announce her intentions for a run at the White House next year.

“That’s up to her when she’s going to announce,” she said.

The younger Palin also artfully dodged a question regarding the McCain family, whom Palin addresses in her book, noting Thursday on The View that her family and the McCain family have “completely different backgrounds" instead of slamming Meghan or Cindy.

But the raciest part of the segment occured when Walters asked Palin abour sex. The ABC host asked Palin, at one point, why she wrote that Levi "stole" her virginity. The former Dancing With the Stars dancer replied she was simply making an analogy to losing her virginity.

Walters then asked Palin if she was prepared to go without sex for a decade or more, should she not find that special someone by 30. Palin replied that she will "not have sex until I'm married." When Walters asked if that was "hard," Palin replied: "not at all."

Last month, the Alaskan made headlines after she caused potential problems between her mother and already announced GOP Presidential hopeful, Michelle Bachmann, when she told AOL's Popeater Bachmann is copying her mother’s style.

“I think she dresses a lot like my mom," Palin told the website.

“But a lot, a lot of women have done that the last few years. I do think it's odd, you know, seeing people with red blazers with their hair up with glasses."

Both Bachmann and Palin have said there is no bad blood betwen them and both have gone on the record to clear up any "catfight" rumors.

As far as the younger Palin's own political aspirations? On The View Thursday, she said she had none.

“I’m only 20, I don’t know what God has in store for me yet,” she said.

Palin’s memoir, Not Afraid of Life: My Journey So Far, was released last month and was co-written with Nancy French.
