So far, there are no bombshells in the thousands of Sarah Palin emails released this week. But they reveal a fuller, more nuanced picture of one of the most powerful and controversial women in US politics today.
The request for thousands of Sarah Palin e-mails, many from her personal account, came just as many Alaskans were growing concerned about the then-governor's ethics. Some 24,000 of those e-mails are being released Friday.
Many Alaskans seem more upset with the McCain campaign's tactics during the ethics probe than with the governor.
