Washington, Nov. 18 (ANI): In her newly published autobiography, former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has claimed that President Barack Obama's message of "change" was picked up from her own campaign for Governor of Alaska.

In her memoir, 'An American Life', Palin noted that "every part of our campaign shouted 'Change!.'"

She points out that her 2006 victory was "based on small donations from all over the state, mostly from first-time political donors" - a practice Obama profited handsomely from.

According to her, the Obama team also adopted several other innovations such as switching from "photo-op stops to honest conversations with actual voters". alin attributes the lifting of her campaign to the fact that one of Obama advisers "had roots in Alaska ", The Telegraph reports.

She hints that now White House Senior Adviser Pete Rouse was somehow inspired by Palin's campaign on a visit to Alaska, where his mother is from and he lived and worked for many years. alin, however, accused Rouse of helping to stir up the investigation into the so-called Troopergate incident, when she dismissed Walter Monegan, the state's public safety commissioner.

"The troopers' union and a group of Democrats with close ties to a senior adviser in the Obama campaign, Pete Rouse, were demanding an investigation," Palin writes in her best seller that has already turned her into a multi-millionaire. (ANI)
