Sarah Palin's daughter was stricken with mononucleosis. The Governor, who had just announced her own pregnancy, took her daughter out of school so she could care for her at home. For the next seven months, mother and child nurtured each other--mother easing the pain of daughter's mono; daughter helping mother through her pregnancy, until finally, the Governor gave birth. Three days later, Governor Palin left her new-born special needs child in the care of that daughter (who was feeling much better, thank you), to resume her duties as Governor.
That my friends, is family values.
