Here are some background links on Sarah Palin, who this morning is emerging in the media as a real dark horse for McCain's running mate! Whoever McCain's running mate is- this was a "close to the vest" announcement, as I have ever seen.
On the radio this morning prior to the announcement- she was called a "Barracuda" in high school due to her intensity. A Soccer Mom, and one host called her an MILF.
