Sarah Palin to Launch Multi-State Bus Tour As She Contemplates Presidential Bid

ABC's Sheila Marikar (@sheilaym) reports:

Sarah Palin announced on Thursday that she’ll embark on an east coast bus tour, kicking off Sunday, May 29 in Washington, DC and going up the northeast coast.

Called the One Nation Tour, a post on the website of Palin's political action committee said the former governor of Alaska and her bus will visit “historical sites that were key to the formation, survival, and growth of the United States of America.”

Its goal, according to a message on the SarahPAC site, is “to educate and energize Americans about our nation's founding principles, in order to promote the Fundamental Restoration of America.”

The bus boasts a triumphant One Nation Tour logo (a drawing of the Liberty Bell sits in place of the “a” in nation), a rendition of the constitution, Palin’s signature and a quintessential American landscape. It’s visually stunning.

Fox News first reported the news on Friday. Host Greta Van Susteren wrote on her blog that the tour “will be in connection with the Rolling Thunder festivities in DC this Memorial Day weekend, either starting or ending with the festivities at Rolling Thunder.”

Rolling Thunder is an annual motorcycle rally held in Washington, DC over Memorial Day weekend that calls for the government's recognition and protection of prisoners of war and people missing in action.

The tour is the latest sign pointing to a possible Palin run for presidency, on top of reports that she’s reshuffled her staff of aides, bought a house in Arizona and supports a documentary about her that’s due out next month.
