Sarah Palin's participation in the annual Memorial Day parade in Washington, D.C., has fueled as much noise about a potential presidential candidacy as the thousands of motorcycle-riding veterans participating in the Rolling Thunder ride-along Sunday.Could you imagine Obama on a chopper? Neither can I. Especially since this image is seared into my memory.
At the Pentagon parking lot where the mob of veterans and their families pre-position for the thunderous two-wheeler march down Constitution Ave, Palin, who was not expected to address the Memorial Day crowd, said she was thrilled to participate.
"I love that smell of the emissions," she said, donning sunglasses and a Harley Davidson skullcap-style, black helmet.
Despite her low-key role, her presence is notable for the short notice and speculative chatter it has generated. Her appearance is part of the "One Nation" tour she announced just days ago on her SarahPAC.com website.
