Who is Sarah Palin? Here's a quick rundown of her resumé: she's the former point guard and captain of the Wasilla (Alaska) High School Warriors who went on to become Miss Wasilla 1984 before working as a local news sports reporter who then served as city councilwoman and mayor of the town of about 9,000 before being elected governor of her home state just two years ago. Take a look back at the woman who failed to become Miss Alaska, but, if elected, would be a heartbeat away from becoming President of the United States of America.
How does she keep so fit? With midnight runs and caribou dinners, of course. Read about her diet and fitness plan here.
