At a campaign event in Lady Lakes, Florida, Governor Sarah Palin criticized Senator Barack Obama for - she says - telling his supporters to "argue" with those who have a different point of view, and "really get in their face".
"That isn't the politics of hope or change".
Palin contrasted Obama's statement with the response her running mate, Senator John McCain, had to some hecklers at a rally last week in Cedar Rapids. McCain said at the time - "One thing Americans want is for us to stop yelling at each other".
Palin was joined onstage by her husband Todd, her baby son Trig, and two of her three daughters, and at one point in the event she handed the microphone to her youngest daughter. She said Piper Palin wanted to thank Floridians for the opportunity to be there. Prior to the event, the Palins had been to Disney World.
