RCP - Palin's 'Exploratory' Campaign: A Nationwide Bus Tour

"Yet another strong indicator that she is leaning toward jumping into the race"
Scott Conroy has the details of Gov. Palin's bus tour at RealClearPolitics:
In a move designed to propel her closer to a presidential run, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will set out on a bus tour of the country on Sunday, making stops at symbolically significant venues along the way.

"Starting this weekend, Sarah Palin will embark on a ‘One Nation' tour of historical sites that were key to the formation, survival, and growth of the United States of America," SarahPAC treasurer Tim Crawford said in a statement to RealClearPolitics. "The tour will originate in Washington, D.C. It will proceed north up the east coast."

Details were still being hammered out on Thursday, but sources indicated to RCP that the bus tour is expected to last several weeks and will be divided up into separate geographical stretches for logistical reasons.

Members of Palin's immediate family are expected to join her on the trip, which will eventually take her through key early voting states.

Looks like gov. Palin will kick off her tour Sunday when she joins in the annual Rolling Thunder Memorial Day weekend motorcycle rally in the naiton's capital city. Riders will gather outside the Pentagon before the traditional motorrcyle parade rolls down Constitution Avenue to the National Mall near the Lincoln Memorial.

The Sarahcuda is a long-time motorcycle admirer, Conroy reminds his readers, recalling her campaign event with "American Choppers" star Paul Teutul in 2008 and her appearance on the show in 2009.
