"I like those bumper stickers that say, 'You can keep the change,'" Sarah Palin told the crowd in Boise. She called Vaughn Ward "the real deal," saying he's pro-gun and pro-life. "Vaughn has been courageous enough to serve our country and fight for you, fight for all Americans, serving in the Iraq war," she said. "Those are the qualities we need in leaders today who like Vaughn can go to Washington and take back a majority for common-sense conservatives, who understand the constitution, and they understand that freedom isn't free, freedom is a God-given right and is worth fighting for." That won Palin a loud cheer and round of applause.
