Palin will criss-cross the country's interior beginning next week to promote her book, but she'll avoid major cities and political battlegrounds.
So is Palin, who captured the nation's attention when she emerged on the national stage as McCain's vice presidential pick, really looking at a run in 2012?
The answer to that remains unclear. Palin writes that if seeking higher office alone had been her ambition, she would have finished her term as Alaska's governor. But she also says her dad got it right when he said, "Sarah's not retreating, she's reloading."
And the very last line of the last chapter sure reads like a campaign poster: "Stand now. Stand Together. Stand for what is right."
