The campaign handpicked Charlie Gibson (no doubt because of his stunningly weak performance as a moderator during the Democratic debates) to be the one to break Palin's cone of silence.

We also want to know about her record as mayor and Governor and how it relates to the way she is presenting herself as a VP candidate. We don't want to know about her favorite color or her zodiac sign. We also don't want to know her favorite place to hunt for moose or fish for salmon. In fact, here's one thing I do want to know so maybe you can ask it for me:
