No folks, this isn't a follow-up to last year's liberal "One Nation" rally. In fact, it's quite the opposite.
This upcoming week, Sarah Palin's "One Nation" junket may be coming to a city near you. Earlier today, SarahPAC (Palin's political action committee) posted the following message on its site:
Starting this weekend, Sarah Palin will embark on a One Nation Tour of historical sites that were key to the formation, survival, and growth of the United States of America. The tour will originate in Washington DC and will proceed north up the east coast. More information will follow. Please follow the tour on SarahPAC.com.
Rather vague, but intriguing none-the-less. The bus she'll be traveling on (pictured above), includes the words "One Nation Under God, Indivisible, With Liberty & Justice For All." According to Politico, Palin is scheduled to stop "...at the Civil War battlefields at Gettysburg and Antietam, and the Liberty Bell in Philadelphia."
The Huffington Post has more:
Palin will kick things off Sunday by taking part in the "Rolling Thunder" motorcycle ride - comprised mainly of U.S. war veterans from the Vietnam War - that begins at the Pentagon and concludes at the Vietnam Memorial on the National Mall.
Planning for the trip kicked into high gear only a short while ago. Palin has rehired two former advance aides to President George W. Bush, Doug McMarlin and Jason Recher, to plan the trip and execute logistics. The details of where the 2008 vice presidential nominee will go remain fluid, and have been closely held within Palin's small world of trusted advisers.
This, teamed with the upcoming release of her feature-length film, seems to point to a potential presidential run. Coincidentally, Gallup released results today that show Palin and former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney at the head of the Republican pack:
Mitt Romney (17%) and Sarah Palin (15%) now lead a smaller field of potential Republican presidential candidates in rank-and-file Republicans' preferences for the party's 2012 nominee.
