Haley said today on ABC's This Week that she finds talk of her joining a ticket a little silly.

The Republican says South Carolina voters took a chance on her and it is her job to prove that they made a good decision.

Haley is South Carolina's first female governor and is a favorite of conservatives who identify with the tea party.

Haley says she is looking forward to watching the 2012 campaign and the discussion of issues important to South Carolina voters.

Why would it be a surprise

Why would it be a surprise why Haley would not consider being a vice-presidential candidate on the Republican ticket in 2012. Haley is carrying too much baggage and she is fully aware of it.
