DAYTONA BEACH -- It began before dawn.

They started lining up at 5 a.m. Friday outside the Books-A-Million at the Volusia Mall to make sure they were the first 900 people to get wrist bands to come back for Sarah Palin's book signing Monday.

In the crowd, a 15-year-old Spruce Creek student who skipped school by herself made friends.

"I just think she's a strong Godly woman and I think she has great morals, and she's an intelligent individual and I think she has a lot to offer," said Rayane Escudero, a student.

"I wish I would have had a role model like Sarah when I was her age," said Michigan resident Norma Gross. "I just think it's wonderful that a woman can do anything today."

There were also NASCAR fans who took a morning off from racing.

"Saw it on the news and couldn't resist it. Proud to say I'm from Massachusetts and we got Scott Brown in there, it's the start of a revolution," said Tony Margino, a Massachusetts resident

Media can’t deal with someone who is genuinely liked......Not someone like barry who has to gin up his cult like followers....

Why does she have to be just one of them? She isn’t an author, and doesn’t pretend to be (like some other...ahem...public figures) but she is a celebrity and politician. They aren’t mutually exclusive.

I kind of hope Sarah doesn’t run. I really like her but I would hate to see a good family go through what they would have to go through. But I bet she could shake up Washington like no one else. I’m reading her book and she isn’t the shallow person the MSM would make her out to be.

“Sarah Palin: Author, Celebrity Or Politician?”

Answer: Brilliant politician IMHO

Anyone who can have corrupt politicians thrown into jail, back down three Big Oil corporations, bring the largest gas pipeline project to fruition, govern a State with an 80% approval rating, and survive vicious ongoing Corporate Media attacks, is a brilliant politician in my book.

To the MSM, any celebrity can potentially be an actor/writer/director/musician/activist/entrepreneur/politician.

But if you’re Sarah Palin, you can’t be an Author/Celebrity/Politician. The MSM thinks you can only be one of those things at a given time.

There are people who are Celibrity Politicians. A short list would be:
Ronald Reagan
Arnold Schwarzenegger
Jerry Springer
Stephen Colbert
Sonny Bono
Jesse Ventura
Fred Thompson
Al Franken
Bill Bradley
Lynn Swann
Jim Bunning

Right now Sarah is a politician.

These types of comments show the adaptation of the white house concern trolls posting on these palin threads. Ever so cleverly shaded remarks, “I’m a huge fan, but I hope she doesn’t run!” or “she’s great but I’m worried about what the media will do to her.” Baghdad bob, please stick to propagandizing in your pressers, stay off fr. We can smell you a mile away.

Celebrity-dom is inherently vapid. Palin has long since crossed beyond that into rare ‘cultural icon’ status. Awesome power at that level.

You are very wrong. I went to see Sarah during the campaign and she was amazing. I stood in line for a very long time. I have her book. I will vote for her if she runs. I’m just sayin.... Who are you to determine someone’s motive?
