Her family moved to Alaska when she was an infant. She and her father would sometimes wake at 3 a.m. to hunt moose before school, and the family regularly ran "5K" (5 km/3.1 mi) and "10K" (10 km/6.2 mi) races.

Palin attended Wasilla High School in Wasilla, Alaska, where she was the head of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes chapter at the school and the point guard and captain of the school's basketball team. She helped the team win the Alaska small-school basketball championship in 1982, hitting a critical free throw in the last seconds of the game, despite having an ankle stress fracture at the time. She earned the nickname "Sarah Barracuda" because of her intense play and was the leader of team prayer before games.

In 1984, Palin won the Miss Wasilla beauty contest,

Palin holds a bachelor's degree in journalism from the University of Idaho, where she also minored in political science. She married Todd Palin, her boyfriend since high school, on August 29, 1988. She then briefly worked as a sports reporter

She is  the second female Vice Presidential candidate representing a major American political party (the first was Geraldine Ferraro). After being selected as the runner up in the 1984 Miss Alaska contest, Palin served two terms on the Wasilla, Alaska City Council from 1992 to 1996, was elected mayor of Wasilla in 1996, and ran unsuccessfully for Lieutenant Governor in 2002. Her family moved to Alaska when Sarah was an infant.

She refers to her husband, Todd, as the "First Dude." He's worked as a commercial fisherman and as a production operator on the North Slope for BP.  He enjoys snowmobiling and has won the Tesoro Iron Dog, billed as the world's longest snowmobile race, four times.

Rick - I had Bob Barr as a guest on my radio show. I liked most of his platform, but in Florida every vote will count and so McCain/Palin get mine.

I've listened to both her speeches and look forward to hearing more from her and about her.  I will say this.  She has been a big surprise to all, and a big boost to the McCain campaign.  Great strategic move on their part.

Palin is a zero. So is Insane...oops..I mean McCain. If you vote for them in November...we'll ALL have to suffer because of your choice..even Independents and Green party people! Palin is just another sad excuse for struggling republicans to keep their nose above water. Lies,deception and chidish pranks is the republican order of the day. Palin loves to fight dirty..as long as she wins. Not once do you hear her talk intelligently about the issues at hand. Logical, rational, intelligent adults are what we need in the White House. We don't need hockey moms! I don't want a hockey mom...or any other kind of "regular person mom"! I want a REAL LEADER WITH EXPERIENCE, SAVY and HIGH INTELLIGENCE in WORL AFFAIRS! Mark my words. Come 2012..,you'll wish you had put a Democrat in office in this 2008 election cycle. Hopefully...we won't be at war with three more countries by then. If you continue to support these people, your kids and grandkids will be wearing a army fatigues whether they are in the military or not. Read '1984' before you jump to voting the this awful republican ticket. Then...get back to me about how you feel about your choice. Keep this in mind as well: The issues ARE NOT, abortion,religion or whether you can hit a misbehaving child. These are 'personal' issues between you, your family and God (if you believe in God). Government has no business intervening or even "bringing up" these subjects. Thats why the Constitution insists on separation of church and state. The Romans used 'religion' and 'God' in their working doctrine too...and look what happened. So please do not think that that just because you support the NRA or NASCAR or you're AGAINST ABORTION that the Repulican tisket is for you. ISSUES.....are things that will have a negative or positive impact on ALL OF US in our daily routines, our lives and the futures of our grand kids. KILLING ANIMALS, CUTTING DOWN TREE's, DRILLING for FOSIL (useless,polluting) FUEL, HEALTH, EDUCATION and WELFARE of and "for" everyone and on-going never-ending war (as proclaimed by McCain) in IRAQ and AFGHANISTAN and now, possiblly more wars in other mid-eastern countries are the "REAL ISSUES". SO PLEASE! CONCENTRATE YOU ENERGIES ON THAT! By the way: Palins' own state of Alaska is on the skids so how in the world can she do anything constructive for the U.S.? She'll be just another money-mongering "Dick" (Cheney) getting sweet deals for her own power and profit. While Alaskan citizens pay through the nose at the pumps and (11 bucks for a gallon of milk in some areas)...,she found it just peachy-keen to build a multi-million dollar "Hocky Rink" to satisfy the needs of her hocky-playing kid. Plus...that money was supposed to be given back to the Federal Government (our tax dollars!) from the infamous "bridge-to-nowhere" scheme. Please "think" before you act in November. We are ALL in this together...and in my hearty of hearts..I believe the democrats should be given a chance to prove themselves to you. After all. The Republicans have had control for the better part of the last 20 years....and NOTHING is good. Unless you count the a few thousand more millionaires made..but at the expense of everyone else.

Keating 5:  McCain was included in the investigation primarily so that there would be at least one Republican target.  Glenn's inclusion in the investigation has been attributed to Republicans who were angered by the inclusion of McCain, as well as committee members who thought that dropping Glenn (and McCain) would make it look bad for the remaining three Democratic Senators.
