Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin galvanized the Republican base as Sen. John McCain's running mate in the 2008 presidential elections. Sarah Palin and husband Todd have five children, including Bristol Palin, who was a pregnant, unmarried teen during the campaign. Three days after Sarah Palin's youngest child Trig was born, she returned to work in the governor's office. Sarah Palin's memoir Going Rogue
was timed to be released in 2010 as strategists started planning the 2012 campaign.
