67. People can be symbols.
Bush, for example, symbolizes a lot of things.

So does Ghandi. So did Terry Schiavo. Ms. Palin's mother is a politician and a public figure. Gov. Palin accepted McCain's selection as VP running mate knowing that her daughter was pregnant. If she could not figure out that people would scrutinize her daughter's life once Gov. Palin was a candidate for national office, she is naive.

Families of public figures are not off limits. Not in the real world anyway. Sorry.
