Palin limits crowd interaction at NC's Fort Bragg

FORT BRAGG, N.C. - November 23, 2009

Palin did not give a speech during her stop Monday at Fort Bragg, home of the Army's 82nd Airborne Division and Green Berets. The former Alaska governor promised to limit her enthusiasm after the Army worried Palin's appearance would prompt political grandstanding against President Barack Obama.

Army officials said more than 1,200 people lined up outside a Fort Bragg store where Palin signed copies of her new memoir. She waved and greeted some supporters before walking inside.

Several military personnel craned to take photos of Palin as she arrived.
