    Alaskan Gov. Sarah Palin became the first woman governor of her state in December 2006. Palin was selected by John McCain as the vice presidential candidate – only the second woman in the US to be selected for that post. After the 2008 election, Palin announced in July 2009 that she would resign her post as governor of Alaska and would not run for reelection in 2010. Palin released her memoir, 'Going Rogue: An American Life,' in November 2009. The former governor and vice-presidential candidate has since formed a political action committee, SarahPAC, and in February 2010 appeared as the keynote speaker at the inaugural 'tea party' convention in Nashville, Tenn.
