BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Hundreds have lined up at a
Birmingha-area book store in hopes of meeting two key Republican
players in last year's presidential race.
A crowd estimated by police at about 1,800 lined up beginning
Saturday night for a chance to get one of the 1,000 wristbands
needed to meet former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin Monday afternoon.
Palin will be signing copies of her just-released book, "Going
Rogue," at the Books-A-Million store at Colonial Brookwood
About 500 people packed the same store Sunday afternoon to get
former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee to sign his new book, "A Simple
Christmas." Huckabee ran for the Republican nomination for
president last year.
Palin was the Republican candidate for vice president in 2008.
