Sarah Palin Accepts Vice President Nomination

Wednesday, September 3, 2008

On this day, 3rd September 2008, Sarah Palin became the first woman to accept nomination for vice president as a Republican and only the second to run for vice president on a major party ticket, after Democrat Geraldine Ferraro in 1984.

Palin also will be the first Alaskan to be on the ticket of either party.

She has described herself as "commander in chief of the Alaska National Guard" and noted that her oldest son, Track, is a U.S. soldier scheduled to deploy soon to Iraq.

But there also are aspects of her biography that make her unusual for a Republican candidate.
