Sarah Palin Biography
Born: 11 February 1964 Birthplace: Sandpoint, Idaho Best Known As: John McCain's vice-presidential candidate in 2008
Her Birth Name: Sarah Louise Heath
The first female governor of Alaska was Sarah Palin. Mrs. Palin was picked as John McCain's running mate in 2008's U.S. Presidental elections. Sarah Palin was born in Idaho and her family moved to Alaska when she was three months old. In her youth she became especially well known for playing point guard for Wasilla High School's 1982 championship team, and was second place in the Miss Alaska contest of 1984. She earned a journalism degree from the University of Idaho in 1987, then returned to Alaska and married Todd Palin, who was her high school boyfriend, in 1988. After a few stints as a TV sportscaster in Anchorage, Palin joined the Wasilla city council in 1992, then served as the city's mayor from 1996-2002. She became Alaska's first woman governor on 4 December 2006, after running a campaign based on ethics and clean government. Two years later, in a surprise selection, Arizona senator McCain made her the Republican Party's first female candidate for vice president. They were defeated by the Democratic ticket of Barack Obama but she kept in the public eye throughout the beginning of 2009, making high-profile trips out of Alaska and giving hope to her fans.
She surprised her constituents when she announced on 3 July 2009 that she would resign in the middle of her first term as governor. Her resignation became official on 26 July 2009, when Lt. Governor Sean Parnell was sworn in to replace her. She published a memoir, Going Rogue, in November of 2009, and two months later announced a deal to appear on Fox News as a contributor.
Sarah Palin is pro-life, pro-marriage, pro-gun and supports oil drilling both offshore and in ANWR. She has publicly questioned whether global warming is man-made. Her husband, Todd Palin, is an Alaska native whose grandmother was raised in a traditional Yup'ik Eskimo house. Sarah's political views are consistent with her conservative Christian beliefs. When she found out that her fifth child would be born with Down syndrome, Sarah did not consider abortion. She gave birth to Trig Paxson Van Palin on April 18, 2008; Trig is Norse and means "true" and "brave victory," and Paxson is a region in Alaska the couple favors. (Van Palin is a nod to the rock group Van Halen.)
Days after her nomination as vice-president in 2008, Palin announced that her 17-year-old daughter, Bristol, was pregnant. Palin said Bristol would marry the father of the child, Levi Johnston, but Bristol Palin and Johnston later broke up. Their son Tripp, Palin's first grandchild, was born in December of 2008... Wasilla is located 35 miles north of Anchorage. The city population was 7028 people in September 2008, according to the city's website... Palin's high school basketball nickname was "Sarah Barracuda"... The Palins have five children: son Track (b. 1989), daughters Bristol (b. 1990), Willow (b. 1994), and Piper (b. 2000), and son Trig (b. 2008). The dates were confirmed in a two-page health history published by her doctor, Cathy Baldwin-Johnson... Trig, who has Down Syndrome, was born while Palin was governor... Track Palin joined the US Army in 2007.
