Hundreds cheer Gov. Palin at Cincinnati book signing

"She stands up for her family and religion and what she believes"
Gov. Palin is in the last hour of signing books in Cincinnati. Here are excerpts from a report by the Cincinnati Enquirer:
David Richardson said he has never before done anything like it.

Not for Reds or Bengals tickets. Not to see a favorite band. Not even for Black Friday Christmas bargains.

But Thursday night, the 66-year-old Loveland man camped outside, braving temperatures in the 20s and snow flurries for the chance to meet former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin today when she signs her new book, "America By Heart," at the Harper's Point Kroger in Symmes Township.

Palin arrived at the Kroger shortly before 11 a.m., saying she was enjoying the "Alaska-like" weather and "just so happy and blessed" to be in Greater Cincinnati.

"There are good, hard-working Americans here looking for answers to some of the country's challenges," Palin said, while dozens of waiting supporters snapped photos. "So it feels very good to be here."

Although she has drawn enthusiastic crowds since her 2008 campaign as GOP Republican presidential nominee John McCain's running mate, Palin said she still is humbled by the sight of hundreds of people waiting to see her.

"You have no idea how humbling," she said. "I just feel very blessed that we have a platform we can use to try to help do good for the people."

And here's a clip from the package aired early this morning on Fox 19 (WXIX-TV):

There was also coverage by WKRC-TV and WLWT-TV.
