AP: Palin book goes after McCain camp but not Levi

NEW YORK (AP) -- When her memoir "Going Rogue" comes out next week, Sarah Palin will embark on a book tour that will take her to many of the same spots she visited as the Republican vice presidential candidate last year.

It will also give her time to publicly relive some of the unpleasant moments of her campaign.

The 413-page book confirms that there were serious tensions between her advisers and John McCain's. She contends she was kept "bottled up" from reporters, forced to wear fancy clothes that she couldn't afford, and not allowed to be herself.

She also details how she was prevented from delivering a concession speech on election night and was prepped to give non-answers during her debate with Joe Biden.

While the book describes Palin's anguish about her teenage daughter's pregnancy, it doesn't contain a single reference to the father, Levi Johnston. The soon-to-be Playgirl model has sparred repeatedly with Palin since calling off his engagement to her daughter, Bristol. He's also warned that Palin should leave him alone, or he might reveal some serious dirt that "will hurt her."
