E-mails show GOP circling Palin in late 2008

Juneau, Alaska (CNN) - Sen. John McCain's presidential campaign and other Republicans began circling Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin in the weeks before McCain picked her as his 2008 running mate, according to e-mails from her old office.

Prominent Republicans had touted Palin as a possible running mate for a few months before. But the courtship appears to have accelerated in early August of 2008, just as the biggest controversy of her administration was gathering steam, according to some of the 24,000 pages of e-mails released by Alaska's state government Friday.

Obama, Republicans focus on jobs in weekly addresses

Washington (CNN) - President Barack Obama urged Americans to be patient while waiting for the economy to improve Saturday, one week after a disappointing jobs report showed the country's unemployment rate rising to 9.1%.

"I wish I could tell you there was a quick fix to our economic problems," Obama said in his weekly address. "But the truth is, we didn't get into this mess overnight, and we won't get out of it overnight. It's going to take time."
