TULSA, Oklahoma -- It was Palin power Friday in Tulsa as hundreds of Sarah Palin fans showed up for a book signing by the political powerhouse.

Many folks forget about the traditional early morning Black Friday shopping. The hot item on a cold day after Thanksgiving was wristbands limited to 500 people.

It was their ticket to meet Sarah Palin as she promoted her new book during a stop at the Mardel store in Tulsa.

"I'm just a huge Sarah Palin fan," said Palin fan Kelly Waters.

Waters was the first person in line, 24 hours ahead of time. She missed Palin's last book signing in Oklahoma.

"I was heck bent on getting my book signed this year," Waters said.

Waters wasn't alone. A huge crowd, bundled in blankets and heavy coats lined up.

"It's worth it, because this lady will be the next President of the United States of America," said another Palin fan Brian Roper.

The bands allowed people to return later in the evening to meet the 2008 Republican presidential running mate.

Trevor Siever, a Pryor resident, got the chance to talk to Palin.

"Thank you. I hope you're the next President," Siever told her. "You're the best fans. I love you," Palin responded.

Most of the fans hope Palin's book tour sets the groundwork for a 2012 presidential bid.

"She's just like down home. Just like everyone else and she's a great leader and a great inspiration to all women," Siever said.

But first things first. For now, they're just happy to meet Palin, get an autograph, and thrilled to take away a memorable beginning to the holiday season.

From Tulsa, Palin's book tour takes her next to Nebraska.

For those die hard Sarah Palin fans who didn't get to meet her and get a signed copy of her book, the only other stops on her schedule within easy driving distance of Oklahoma are Dallas and Little Rock.
