Gov. Sarah Palin didn't talk much to the media on the campaign trail. But, she chatting it up now.
Today, McCain's former vice presidential candidate sat down with CNN's Wolf Blitzer and Larry King. And, she's been all over the TV in recent days.
She told Wolf Blitzer she'd help President-elect Obama if he asked.
"It would be my honor to assist and support our new president and the new administration," Palin said.
But she says she's still concerned about Obama's ties to former Weather Underground member Williams Ayers, who is now a college professor in Chicago.
"If anybody still wants to talk about it, I will. Because this is an unrepentant domestic terrorist who had campaigned to blow up, to destroy our Pentagon and our U.S. Capitol," she said.
"That's an association that still bothers me, and I think it's fair to still talk about it," she continued. "However, the campaign is over. That chapter is closed. Now is the time to move on and make sure all of us are doing all that we can to progress this nation."

Also tonight, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson's new strategy or flip-flop (if you prefer) to revive the U.S. economy. Paulson announced today that the government is no longer planning to buy troubled mortgage assets, which were part of the original $700 billion bailout plan. The new strategy: support financial institution that provide credit cards and auto loans.
"I will never apologize for changing an approach or strategy when the facts change," Paulson said.
There's no new approach on Wall Street.
For the third day in a row the Dow took a beating. Blue chips fell 411 points today, and more than 600 points since Monday. Today alone the market lost about $600 billion. Ouch!
The lingering question: Should the government bailout the so-called "Big Three" automakers, General Motors, Ford and DaimlerChrysler?
