Sarah Palin Meets President Obama

jueves, 29 de enero de 2009 |

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin said she will attend an exclusive club dinner in Washington this weekend because she could be offered the chance to obtain an audience with the new elected President Barack Obama as he is also expected to attend the elite gathering of Washington's political and media establishment.
Palin said she is participating in outside events, like this Saturday’s Alfalfa Club dinner in the nation’s capital, strictly to promote Alaska's interests as its governor.

Palin said she formed SarahPAC earlier this week, a political fundraising organization, so that she would not be using state funds to attend events that might be considered political. She is the first governor from Alaska who ever formed a PAC, a move that has often preceded presidential runs. However, Palin denied that it means she is already plotting a 2012 presidential bid on Wednesday night, saying that she has no intention whatsoever to participate at the race for the White House.

Sarah Palin rose into the public eye last year as GOP presidential candidate John McCain's running mate. Aides said the PAC will help serve as a vehicle for her political activities going forward, even if that does not mean Palin aims for becoming president.

She also tried to clear things up regarding the fact that she does not have a publisher for a book deal, saying that the amount of $11 million that the media believes she will earn is absolutely laughable.
