Sarah Palin toured historic sites throughout the northern East Coast over Memorial Day weekend including the National Mall and National Archives in Washington D.C., George Washington's Mount Vernon, Gettysburg and is visiting Statue of Liberty and Ellis in New York today before heading to Boston to close out her tour. Palin will then head back to Alaska before launching her "One Nation Tour" on the West Coast. From ABC News:
Her plans after she leaves the northeast:
"Go back to Alaska - in fact today, Willow [the middle Palin daughter] already had to get back to work so she had to leave - go back to Alaska, come back on the trail again, and take the tour west as the summer progresses."
Asked if she'll go all over the country, Palin said, "that is our plan, our tentative plan, anyway."
Has the tour made her want to run for president in 2012?
"Oh man," she said, "It makes me want to travel across the US to see the great people who've contributed so wonderfully to this country."
