For someone who this summer was labeled a "quitter" when she stepped down as Alaska's governor, Palin, 45, enjoyed an astonishing rebound. Just look at the numbers: 1 million copies of her memoir Going Rogue sold in its first two weeks. She wore down more than 400 Sharpie pens autographing 58,000 books for those who flocked to see her during a 33-city book tour (complete with customized bus including a couch for catching a quiet moment with 20-month-old son Trig). "Exhilarating!" is how she described it all to her 1 million-plus Facebook friends.
