Sarah Palin’s new memoir, “Going Rogue,” is just out and already a bestseller. It’s in the bookstores today. She’s on Oprah. Her tour bus is hitting the road.

The book settles scores with McCain advisers the ex-Alaskan governor sees as having crimped her style on the vice-presidential campaign trail. Payback is the word. A little redemption, a little revenge. And a lot of stage-setting for whatever comes next.

Will she run for President in 2012? She’s not retreating, reports Sarah Palin. She’s reloading.

This hour, On Point: “Going Rogue” and the political future of Sarah Palin.
