Washington, September 27 : The footage of the 1984 Miss Alaska Pageant, wherein Republican vice-presidential candidate Sarah Palin appears strutting on stage in a swimsuit, has hit the web.
"Sarah says she wants to prepare for a career in television broadcasting by majoring in telecommunications and political science," Us Magazine quoted the compare as saying in the video.
The announcer continues: "It is no wonder that she has also been recognized by 'Who's Who?' since she has displayed her leadership in all areas, from academics to student politics to athletics... Ladies and gentlemen, contestant No. 8, Sarah Heath."
Ever since the beauty contest, Palin has served two terms on the Wasilla City Council before becoming mayor of the town in 1996.
