Palin background and vetting process

Posted on: September 5, 2008

Hungry for Sarah Palin information?

Some stories on the background of the Republican Party nominee for vice-president include…this one by Tom Kizzia of the Anchorage Daily News first published October 23, 2006…and October 23, 2006….those two stories dug up and presented online by by Midwest Voices columnist Yael T. Abouhalkah.
This next story, from Editor & Publisher writer Greg Mitchell, includes story snippets compiled from Alaska newspaper articles.

And from Wikianswers, this rather professional looking third-person resume with concise background details.

Some stories are now concentrating on her college background. Palin, who graduated in 1987 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Journalism from the University of Idaho, appears to have attended five post-secondary schools on the way to her degree. They include Hawaii Pacific University, North Idaho College, the University of Idaho, Matanuska-Susitna College in Palmer, Alaska, and back to the University of Idaho where she graduated. Story links from Ryan Finn, Bloomberg, and a blog post from All the Latest News that includes an early photograph of Palin.

Here also is an interesting story on the vetting process that finally resulted in Palin as the McCain’s choice. Story link: Dan Balz, Washington Post.
