Palin to travel to India

(CNN) - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will be making a trans-continental trip to India in March to speak at the India Today 2011 conclave in New Delhi, Palin aide Rebecca Mansour tweeted Wednesday.

Palin, who is weighing a possible 2012 run for the Republican presidential nomination, is set to speak on March 19, delivering a keynote address on "My Vision of America." Attendees will have the opportunity to ask the 2008 vice presidential candidate questions, according to the conference program.

The conclave, organized by one of the biggest publishing groups in India, is an annual event named for the newsmagazine "India Today."

The conference attracts India's elite and covers topics that range from policy, regional diplomacy, business and economic and technology to social trends.

The 2011 roster will cover issues from "The Gender Dialogue: Can the burqua co-exist with the bikini?" to a session on "Politics and Ethics: Is honesty impossible in Indian politics?"

Other speakers and panelists include Indian Prime Minister Manmohan Singh, feminist writer Germaine Greer, Indian actor Aamir Khan and Egyptian opposition leader and Nobel Peace laureate Mohamed ElBaradei.

Palin aides are not saying yet whether there will be additional overseas stops built around the India trip.

–CNN's Steve Brusk and Peter Hamby contributed to this report.

    The headline said "trip" and I thought, with any luck, she fell head over heels.

  4. Tired of the nonsense

    Just don't ask her what books or magazines she reads. She can't answer it.

    IIt's not that it's a "gotcha" question - It's because she can't read.

    "My Vision of America" Get ready for Bible Spice to start negotiating even more jobs shipped to India. I bet if we followed the money, it would reveal that the Koch Brothers/Suckers are behind Snooky's secret little trip.

    Seriously, why don't you take care of your children, Grizzly Mamma? Your kids need you more than we do!

    I don't suppose we can muzzle her? Do we really have to be embarrassed by her patriotic mumbo jumbo and extreme jingoism?

    Cross your fingers that she will STAY there for-e-ver!!!! You "betcha"! Once she gets there and starts talking and making absolutely no sense whatsoever, the people will probably "refudiate" her!!

    This story belongs in the Entertainment section. Palin is not a politician. She's a reality show star and Fox News pundit. She's no more a politician that Rush Limbaugh is.
