Alaska released a massive trove of e-mail messages from Sarah Palin's days as governor on Friday shedding light on the 2008 Presidential campaign before she was picked as Sen. John McCain's running mate.
Palin is currently undecided about a possible 2012 presidential bid.
Below are selected e-mails from January, February and August.
Jan. 30 2008 - Palin reacts to a call by former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee
He called. Very cool, she told staffers. Unless McCain calls, Huck's a good pick for me, just FYI. He says he's all for gas line and ANWR - very cool.
Feb. 4, 2008 - Palin reacts to a call by former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
Talked to Romney today! Thank you for hooking that up! she told a deputy. Can't believe he took the time. Talked to him about women in leadership. He said all the right things.
August 4, 2008 - Palin reacts to an a speech on energy policy by the Democratic candidate Sen. Barack Obama.
He gave a great speech this morn in Michigan-mentioned Alaska. Stole ou[r] Energy Rebate $1000 check idea, stole our TC-Alaska gasline talking points, etc, Palin wrote to her aides.
So.... we need to take advantage of this a[nd] write a statement saying he's right on. (Glad he's flipflopping on OCS, too.) Joe- could you help crank this quick statement out as our 'reaction' to some of Obama's good points this morning, she wrote.
Tim Crawford, treasurer for Palin's political action committee said the thousands of e-mails released show a very engaged Palin being CEO of her state.
