She's Back: Palin's Bus Tour Begins

Sarah Palin kicked off her "One Nation" bus tour at the Rolling Thunder ride in Washington, DC.
She joined thousands of motorcycles from across the country in the annual ride that draws attention to American veterans and missing troops.

Palin, who may run for president in 2012, received mixed reviews for participating in this years event because organizers say it is not meant to be a political event.
"We're here to honor our vets and remind Americans how extremely important it is to express our gratitude," Palin said when asked why she was at the event.

Her husband, Todd, and daughters Bristol and Piper also joined in the rally - all riding Harley Davidson bikes towards the front of the pack.

There's controversy about Palin's participation.  She says she was "invited".  Others say she wasn't. 

"She's not invited to speak. We're not endorsing her ... (but) we can't stop her from coming to ride, if she wants to ride," Ted Shpak, national legislative director of Rolling Thunder, told "Andrea Mitchell Reports.

Leave it to Palin to take her pubicity any way she can get it.
