Sarah from Alaska : The Sudden Rise and Brutal Education of a New Conservative Superstar

Sarah from Alaska : The Sudden Rise and Brutal Education of a New Conservative Superstar


Two 'embedded reporters' in Sarah Palin's historic vice presidential campaign - Conroy from CBS, Walshe from FOX - tell the behind-the-scenes story of the campaign and investigate its ramifications inside the Republican Party and for both Palin's and America's political future. Sarah Palin's two month run for the vice presidency was one of the most exciting, bizarre, outrageous and in many respects most secretive campaigns ever run. Regardless of how you feel about her, it's almost impossible from a standpoint of wanting to understand the nature of American politics and sheer curiosity (or outright voyeurism), not to want to know what actually went on behind the scenes when Sarah wasn't out there backslapping and rallying her fans-and what Republican insiders were and are thinking about her political future and the future of the party. Scott Conroy of CBS News and Shushannah Walshe of Fox News were two of only five journalists embedded in the Palin campaign, 24/7 for the full two month run and connected with virtually everyone on her team.
Almost everyone involved-from Steve Biegun, Palin's senior foreign policy adviser, to her beauty stylist / make-up artist, to neocon stalwart William Kristol who supported Palin from the beginning- is eager to go on record and share their experiences and observations with reporters they trust. And Sarah Palin herself has agreed to give them an extensive interview for the book as well. Though the Palin campaign probably qualifies as the vice presidential campaign which had the most impact on any presidential election in the history of this country, ironically it was also the campaign most shrouded in mystery. By having the cooperation of almost all the players in the campaign, the authors will be able to provide the American public with key information and insights which they are entitled to about this pivotal campaign and about Sarah Palin, who is unquestionably here to stay. This will be a truly entertaining book, as well as critical reading for anyone interested in American politics.
