Bristol Palin, 20, is already plotting her future career in -- you guessed it -- politics! In an interview with E! News, Bristol admits that she'll "probably" run for office sometime "further down the road."

But sources claim Bristol's foray into politics is going to happen a lot sooner than she lets on. "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!
