Palin's book controversy

Posted by: Sherri Burnett-James - bio | email

(WSFA) -  Former governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin stirs up controversy in her new book, "Going Rogue: An American Life." Since Palin's 2008 vice-presidential campaign with John McCain, she has been in the hot seat for her political views and family life drama . Some critics say that "Going Rogue: An American Life" is an attempt for Sarah Palin to seek revenge for all the heat she experienced in 2008.

Today on Oprah, Palin begins her book campaign in an exclusive world interview. She will discuss her influence in John McCain's presidential campaign, her family issues, and her purpose for publishing her book. Also, the discussion of her possibly running for president in 2012 will be on the table. Watch the interview exclusively on WSFA 12 News at 4:00 p.m. today.

Starting Wednesday, Palin will begin a seven day bus trip through nine states. Many of the states are expected to be presidential battle grounds in 2012. Although her political plans and future are still unclear, Palin's book is expected to be a success.

WSFA 12 News is conducting a poll to find out how many people will read her book. You can cast your vote on our homepage or news page today.
