INDIANOLA, IA – Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin today took the stage to chants of “Run Sarah Run!” from the crowd of 2,000, which was double the event organizer’s expectations. Following her epic speech in which she outlined her five-point plan to revitalize our economy, Gov. Palin spent nearly 45 minutes shaking hands and hugging her supporters, signing books, posters, tee shirts, twice walking the rope line to ensure everyone had their special moment. We were not high-powered executives, major donors, corporate sponsors, or fat cats who paid thousands of dollars to pose for a picture. We were ordinary wanting to bond with an ordinary woman who is on an extraordinary path.
Jelayne Sessler professionally transcribed much of Gov. Palin’s Five-Point Economic Plan, punctuated by the crowd 2,000-strong summoning her to run for President in 2012.
These two Standard Definition Videos from the US for Palin Live-Stream contain the entire speech and a significant portion of the meet and greet session that followed.
At 13:29:47 CDT (49:47 into the video), I had my special moment. What lasted four seconds felt like much longer. No paid hacktivists and crony capitalists here. When she descended those steps Governor Palin was not a mere politician with a title, nor merely a 2012 Presidential hopeful.
She was SARAH. Our Sarah.
