Sarah Palin's Corsages Through The Years (PHOTOS)

Sarah Palin sure loves an excuse to wear a corsage. We first spotted that unmistakable cluster of flowers, ribbon and baby's breath on her wrist at the Alaska Anniversary Ball in mid-November. Then she brought it back -- only bigger and badder -- for Thursday's State of the State address. But when we reached even further into the archives (or as far back as our photo wires go for the governor, which is 2006), we discovered a longtime predilection for the style. Is this an Alaskan tradition? (Even though they do not appear to be Alaska's state flower, The Forget-Me-Not.) Does anyone out there know?
