SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin attended five colleges in six years before graduating from the University of Idaho in 1987. Federal privacy laws prohibit the schools from disclosing her grades, and none of the schools contacted by The Associated Press could say why she transferred. There was no indication any of them were contacted as part of the background investigation of Palin by presidential candidate John McCain's campaign. "Our office was not contacted by anyone," said Tania Thompson, spokeswoman for the University of Idaho in Moscow. Palin, the governor of Alaska, was born in Idaho. Her family moved when she was only a few months old to Alaska, where she was raised. She began college at Hawaii Pacific University, a private, nonsectarian school in Honolulu. She attended only as a freshman during the fall of 1982, school spokeswoman Crystale Lopez said. Then known as Sarah Louise Heath, she was in the business administration program as a full-time student, Lopez said.

That’s my question too. Why do these news organizations even bother?
Did she eat a live goldfish or cram herself into a car with 27 other college students?
The 6th one probably wasn’t a liberal one
I’m glad they’re doing this. They’re just digging a bigger hole for themselves.
Bravo Foxtrot Delta. I have plenty of friends and acquaintances that had similar educational experiences.
She graduated, didn’t she? That’s more than Al Gore can say.
The McCain campaign vetted her bigtime and they knew about this.... I don’t think this is a big deal at all....
Hey MSM, that’s some great digging. Now will you please find out what Obama’s and his wife’s SAT and LSAT scores were and whether they got into Ivy League Schools merely as tokens, perhaps we’ll have a fuller picture to look over when we make our vote decision.
I wonder how many pushers Nicky’s guy Obama visited in those same six years.
Big deal. While in the military, I got college credits from about six or seven different colleges that offered courses on various bases. Does that make me dumb or something. NEVER MIND, DON’T ANSWER THAT!!!! :-) Maybe the lady was trying to get away from Marxist professors and was hunting a college that actually offered courses she wanted with decent professors and NOT Commie leaders.
OMG! Well, I saw the speech and donated big $$$ to the campaign. I’m going to ask for a refund.
What about articles about Biden’s scholarship???
That, in itself, gives her more experience than Obama has.
And all of it is the the United States.
Me too! Then we can ask who got Barack Obama into Harvard and who paid for it.
I heard she walked on the beach barefoot in Hawaii. Is that a criminal act?
She has probably learned, like we all did, that changing schools don’t improve the entrenched liberal politicizing of paid education.
She's damn sharp.
People making an issue of this are just elitists who don't want a non-ivy leaguer in office.
