In a recent interview with E! News, Bristol Palin expressed that she would like to run for office sometime “further down the road.” But sources claim the 20-year-old is already plotting her future in politics, and sources say that her political future will come a lot sooner than later.

More below:

“Bristol has a new sense of confidence since she did ‘Dancing with the Stars,'” the source said. “She has seen her mother (Sarah Palin’s) success and believes Washington should have more regular people like her in office making decisions for the country, rather than the elite that currently run DC.”

The abstinence speaker and soon-to-be author “doesn’t have a strong political resume,” but the source claims “that’s what will make her a great congresswoman or even president!” Who knows? Maybe Bristol will be vying for the White House in 2012 instead of Mama Grizzly!

When asked just what would drive this young mother to enter the cutthroat world of politics, Bristol’s answer was similar to one her own mom has given in the past. “If I saw something that needed to be changed, then I would step up to the plate and do something about it,” she said.

Bristol Palin as a politician? That should be pretty interesting to watch…
