Overview

Sarah Palin - The Alaskan Barracuda is a biography of Sarah Palin, the governor of Alaska who previously served two terms on the Wasilla, Alaska City Council from 1992 to 1996, then won two terms as mayor of Wasilla from 1996 to 2002. After an unsuccessful campaign for lieutenant governor of Alaska in 2002, she chaired the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission from 2003 to 2004 while also serving as Ethics Supervisor of the commission. In November 2006, Palin was elected Governor of Alaska, becoming the first woman and youngest person to hold that office. She defeated incumbent Republican Governor Frank Murkowski in the Republican primary and former Democratic Governor Tony Knowles in the general election. On August 29, 2008, Republican Presidential candidate Senator John McCain announced that he had chosen Palin as his running mate. She was nominated at the 2008 Republican National Convention in Saint Paul, Minnesota. Palin is the second woman to run for vice president on a major-party ticket and the first Republican woman to do so (the first such Democrat was Geraldine Ferraro in 1984). Palin has described the Republican Party platform as "the right agenda for America," adding "individual freedom and independence is extremely important to me and that's why I'm a Republican." Palin is seen as a powerful candidate to run with John McCain because of her experience as a Governor, small town Mayor, mother of five and a politician who has taken on her own party. Sarah Palin - The Alaskan Barracuda is a highly recommended biography for those interested in learning more about the life and political career of maverick politician Sarah Palin.
