Sarah Palin redefined the path to political glory with a wink and smile. A former beauty queen-turned-politico, Palin became an instant media sensation when she became Senator John McCain's pick for his running mate in the 2008 presidential election. Barely two years into her term as Alaska's governor and with almost no background on national security and foreign policy issues, Palin was suddenly entrusted to become one heartbeat away from being the Presidency of the United States. With her trademark half up do, questionable fashion choices, and folksy one-liners, Palin was seen by many as a joke while still others considered her a serious reformer. She was a social conservative who supported gun rights, opposed same-sex marriage, and developed a reputation as a maverick with a no-holds-barred position on ethics. Palin's campaign was rocked by numerous scandals that involved her family and she was heavily lampooned by comedienne Tina Fey, whose accurate portrayals of Palin's gaffes on "Saturday Night Live" (NBC, 1975- ) only intensified the media frenzy. In November 2008, the Obama-Biden winning ticket put an end to Palin's fast-track journey to the White House. But she kept herself in the spotlight with TV appearances, a book deal, and successful fundraisers, all of which triggered rumors of a presidential bid in 2012, and added a new chapter in Palin's indefatigable quest for a spot in American history.
