ABC News' Sheila Marikar reports from Pella, Iowa:

Outside of Iowa's Pella Opera House before the premiere of the documentary about her, Sarah Palin played coy today about her presidential ambitions and elaborated little on Bristol Palin's statement today that her mother had made up her mind.

"What exactly did Bristol say?" Palin said when asked about her daughter's "Fox & Friends" appearance Tuesday morning in which Bristol said her mother "definitely" knows whether she will run or not. "I texted Bristol, I said 'What did you say this morning, honey?'

"What I told Bristol, too, I said, 'What is talked about on the fishing boat stays on the fishing boat,'" she said.

Palin added that while she met with "a couple of folks who are volunteers with a lot of different Republican causes" in Iowa today, she is not "ready to announce anything yet" regarding a potential candidacy.

More than a hundred fans thronged the Pella Opera House, where "The Undefeated," which chronicles Palin's life and political rise, premiered this evening. Palin told her Iowa fans that should she run, she would be committed to the Iowa caucus process, even though she has yet to meet with key operatives in the state.

When asked if she would commit to Iowa, Palin said, "110 percent" and added she'd do "as much as I can to garner that support. It's necessary."
