Athens, GA (Aug 29, 2008) - Now that John McCain has picked his running mate, Sarah Palin, we are guaranteed to have a history making election this November. If McCain wins, the United States have the first ever female vice-president that was also a sportscaster.
The family eventually ended up in Wasilla, where Sarah attended high school. It was here she met her future husband, Todd, as well as learning discipline, goal-setting, and teamwork through her participation on the basketball team that won the State Championship her senior year. Following high school, Sarah went to college for a couple of years in Hawaii, but transferred to North Idaho College and then on to University of Idaho, Moscow, where she earned her degree in journalism with a minor in political science. Upon graduation, she returned to Alaska and took a job as a weekend sportscaster for KTUU-TV in Anchorage. She married Todd Palin, her high school sweetheart soon after and they started a family. While Todd worked for British Petroleum on the North Slope, Sarah became the busy homemaker, raising the kids, working for short stints at the TV station, and spending time with friends and family.
A sportscaster one heartbeat away from the White House? Scary thought...oh wait, we already had one in there...
