Republican vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin will speak at her son’s Army deployment ceremony on 9/11 and then spend two days talking with ABC News as part of the McCain campaign’s effort to spotlight her candidacy.

Palin’s handlers had initially suggested that Palin would not do interviews for some time. But now campaign officials say she will talk with Charles Gibson of ABC’s “World News” at the ceremony in Fairbanks and at her home in Wasilla, Alaska, later this week, according to Politico.

“ABC News will have plenty of time to question her and examine her and spend time with her,” a campaign official said. “They’ll do multiple interviews over two days. No topics are off-limits.”

Until now, Palin has delivered speeches but not given interviews or held a news conference.

“The remarkable offer to ABC … is part of an ambitious project to sell Palin well beyond the right — to a broad swatch of women and independent voters, including former supporters of Sen. Hillary Clinton,” Politico reported.

Campaign officials would not disclose why Gibson was chosen, but one aide said: “Somebody had to go first.”
