A name doing the rounds everywhere on the Internet, newspapers, and television channels, Sarah Palin is a name to reckon with. Sarah Palin has many firsts to her credit and has an interesting history. She was once upon a participant in the Miss Alaska contest, and even went on to secure the second place. This former beauty queen is today one of the top political leaders in the US. Her political career began quite early. She made records as the youngest ever governor of Alaska many years back.
She captured the title of Miss Wasilla in and went on to win first runner-up and Miss Congeniality in the Miss Alaska pageant. This accomplishment has since become boilerplate language in her biography. But instead of just adding to the emerging image of the Alaska governor, her beauty-pageant past has served to upset traditional perceptions of what women are capable of. Wife, mom, governor — former beauty queen?
Sarah Palin is a former Governor of Alaska, an author, political commentator, and even a reality television star. She is also one of the most polarizing figures to have entered American politics in the last decade. There are some who love her and others who despise her, but either way, everyone seems to have an opinion. While serving as Governor, Palin first stepped into the national spotlight when she was chosen as the vice presidential running mate for the Republican nominee John McCain in the election.
