CNN’s Hamby: Actually, Palin engaged with media on bus tour

Now that the One Nation Tour bus is at rest in the garage before the next leg of Sarah Palin’s great American adventure gets it rolling again, CNN Political reporter Peter Hamby looks back on the week and concludes that Gov. Palin actually treated the media quite nicely while on the tour:

Her strategy is unlikely to change as the patriotism-themed tour makes its way through the Midwest, West and South later this month.

But once reporters tracked her down, Palin was eager to engage. At stop after stop after stop, she answered questions on everything from energy subsidies to the debt ceiling to her favorite brand of designer jeans.

[…]

…she took questions from the media 17 different times over the course of four days.

That’s a remarkable number for any national political figure, particularly for one locked into an exclusive television contract that normally precludes her from talking to other media outlets.

[…]

But Palin seemed at ease at most events, lingering outside her bus or SUV to answer every possible question despite Piper’s best efforts to drag her away and helpless shouts of “Last question!” from her aides.

During a stop at a café in central Pennsylvania, even her normally reticent husband Todd opened up to reporters about his family’s readiness for a potential campaign.

At a clambake in the coastal New Hampshire town of Seabrook on Wednesday, Palin cheerfully chatted at length with a pack of reporters from national outlets like CNN, NBC, CBS, The Washington Post, Time and Bloomberg.

She certainly seems to have treated the media better than it has treated her. But hasn’t that always been the case?

RCP – Palin’s ‘Exploratory’ Campaign: A Nationwide Bus Tour

Scott Conroy has the details of Gov. Palin’s bus tour at RealClearPolitics:

In a move designed to propel her closer to a presidential run, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will set out on a bus tour of the country on Sunday, making stops at symbolically significant venues along the way.

“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,” SarahPAC treasurer Tim Crawford said in a statement to RealClearPolitics. “The tour will originate in Washington, D.C. It will proceed north up the east coast.”

Details were still being hammered out on Thursday, but sources indicated to RCP that the bus tour is expected to last several weeks and will be divided up into separate geographical stretches for logistical reasons.

Members of Palin’s immediate family are expected to join her on the trip, which will eventually take her through key early voting states.

Looks like gov. Palin will kick off her tour Sunday when she joins in the annual Rolling Thunder Memorial Day weekend motorcycle rally in the naiton’s capital city. Riders will gather outside the Pentagon before the traditional motorrcyle parade rolls down Constitution Avenue to the National Mall near the Lincoln Memorial.

The Sarahcuda is a long-time motorcycle admirer, Conroy reminds his readers, recalling her campaign event with “American Choppers” star Paul Teutul in 2008 and her appearance on the show in 2009.
