When the campaign ended and President Obama was elected, Sen. McCain gave what Palin describes as a gracious concession speech. But Palin says she was silenced that evening. She says she was told that VP candidates never give speeches on election night. "I knew that was false because I've seen it over all the years. In fact, four years prior of course that had happened," she says. "[I was] disappointed, too, that we didn't take one last opportunity to remind Americans that all of us together need to be able to move forward. United we will stand as a country, and that's what I wanted to talk about."
