Sarah Palin Insists Bus Tour Isn’t for Campaigning

Randy Snyder/Getty Images(WASHINGTON) -- Sarah Palin stopped by the National Archives in Washington, D.C., Monday with her family to see the U.S. Constitution, and insisted to reporters that her bus tour is not a campaign tour.

Palin, who has yet to announce her presidential ambitions despite much speculation, said her tour is not about building support for a possible run but to visit historic sites with her family, to restore faith in the country and to show people that big government isn't always the answer.

"This isn’t a campaign bus. This is a bus to be able to show America how much we appreciate our foundation...and to remind ourselves that we don't need to fundamentally transform America. We need to restore what’s good about America," the former Alaska governor said as she left the National Archives.

Palin said this was the first time two of her kids had seen the Constitution.

"It's heartwarming, and it means so much to so many of us here and see the foundation of America," she told reporters.

Palin launched her "One Nation" bus tour Sunday -- on the back of a Harley -- at the annual Memorial Day gathering of the patriotic Rolling Thunder riding group.

Palin's team hasn't released a schedule of her tour, but the former GOP vice presidential candidate's next stop is expected to be Gettysburg, Pa.
