(CNN) - The outdoor brand Weatherproof is again out of luck as it searches for a high-profile face to lead its "A leader in style" ad theme.
The company first acquired the rights of an Associated Press photograph of President Obama sporting a black Weatherproof jacket during his trip to China last fall. But the company never asked permission from the White House to use the image, and when it appeared on a billboard in New York last month President Obama's aides demanded it be taken down.
The company agreed, hoping to replace the president's image with one of former Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin, who has also been photographed in a Weatherproof jacket.
But Palin's attorney tells CNN her office has declined the brand's request.
No word on which famous pol the company may look to next.

Maybe she's holding out for the swimsuit issue?!
what Palin not wanting to put her mug shot on a billboard ? what a joke . she should be on a milk carton :) now that would be good :)
I think it would be great to have Sarah model. She could put the money in a college fund for her grandchild.
Does Bristol's hairdo look like a Morman sister-wife? Has the media researched Levi's I. Q.?
Who cares what the Quitta of Wasilla has to say or do with regard to anything? No one!!!
Why is this story even on here, and on the "politics" page. Palin is a political quitter and loser...and is irrelevant to political dialogue!
In the words of Ben Stein on CNN the other neight, "Palin is sooo yesterday."
Get over her, the majority of the nation already has–all but that pond scum floating up in the shallow end of the gene pool.....
Apparently there are some things Palin just won't do. Lol. This is WAY worse than advocating alcohol companies.
She's holding out for Playboy.
Wait for it......Palin bashing to begin any second
I'm happy for Sarah Palin and saying no. She ain't like that, I'm happy for her.
ok I'm confused, the article says the company is looking for a high profile face and goes on about a leader in style. where does caribou klunk head qualify?
