Sarah Palin has spoken to CNN about her plans to tackle government reform and energy independence should she and John McCain win the election.

“I do have more experience than Barack Obama does,” Palin said. “You know, he had served for his 300 days before he became a presidential candidate and that wasn’t in, in executive office.”

“It’s going to be government reform because that, that is what I’ve been able to do as a mayor and as a governor, you, you take on the special interests and the self-dealings. Yep, you ruffle feathers and you have the scars to prove it.”
