Sarah Palin's Wardrobe: Fashion Do or Don't?

Hosted by

"Nothing says Main Street like Sacks Fifth Avenue" is just one of the cracks made by political pundits after news that the Republican National Committee spent $150,000 on clothes for Sarah Palin. An advocate for Joe Sixpack, Palin only makes $125,000 a year as Governor of Alaska. Campaign operatives explained the purchases as allowing the vice presidential candidate to have the wardrobe she needed to campaign in different climates. But listing those expenses on campaign finance reports, where they were picked up by Politico, has created an image problem.
