Palin talks about her agenda

GOLDEN, Colo. (AP) -- Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin says energy, government reform and helping families with special-needs children will top her agenda should John McCain win the White House this fall.

The Alaska governor, campaigning on her own in Golden, Colorado, drew cheers when she said "too often government is the problem" rather than the solution.

In her speech to supporters, Palin said she sees her role in a McCain White House as including a broad effort to bring more open government to Washington.

She adds that, since her state produces some 20 percent of the nation's oil and gas, she will also help McCain implement his energy policy.
