Palin: Mortgage plan not a hand-out, but a hand up

SCRANTON, Pa. - October 14, 2008 - At a campaign rally in Scranton, Palin said McCain's mortgage proposal is "not a hand-out, but a hand up" to keep financially overwhelmed Americans in their homes.

She took a swipe at Joe Biden, the Democratic vice presidential candidate who grew up in Scranton. She says Biden is opposed to clean coal. Pennsylvania is one of the nation's top coal-producing states.

She also says Barack Obama talks a lot about the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan but never says he wants the United States to win.
