However, it has become clear over the past couple of weeks that America has fallen in love with the Republican candidate for Vice President.
John McCain's poll numbers are surging, and voters from across the political spectrum seem to have an insatiable appetite for more information about Sarah Palin.
Below we have posted 16 of the most stunning photos of Sarah Palin. There is a saying that "a picture is worth a thousand words", so hopefully these pictures will help you to get to know Sarah Palin a lot better:
"This world of threats and dangers is not just a community, and it doesn’t just need an organizer."
"To the families of special-needs children all across this country, I have a message: For years, you sought to make America a more welcoming place for your sons and daughters. I pledge to you that if we are elected, you will have a friend and advocate in the White House."
"Our opponents say again and again that drilling will not solve all of America's energy problems, as if we didn't know that already."
"This is a man who can give an entire speech about the wars America is fighting and never use the word "victory," except when he's talking about his own campaign."
"But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed, when the roar of the crowd fades away, when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot..."
"I might add that, in small towns, we don't quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they're listening and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren't listening."
