The Invisible Primary, 11/17

Tracking the GOP race to 2012

The Sarah Palin media blitz has kicked off, with her book hitting stores today; yesterday, she appeared on Oprah and dished on how the McCain campaign handled her (she didn't even get to pick the wording of the announcement of her daughter's pregnancy, she said), said Levi Johnston has an "open invitation" to Thanksgiving dinner, and told Oprah that a 2012 bid is "not on my radar"; today, her interview with Barbara Walters will air on Good Morning America; Mike Huckabee signed books in The Villages, Florida last night; and Tim Pawlenty spoke at a National Republican Senatorial Committee fundraiser in Washington, DC yesterday.
