This will be Sarah Palin’s week. She’s traveling around the country in a bus painted to look like the cover of her book, “Going Rogue,” which comes out Tuesday (and was No. 1 on Amazon.com's bestseller list long before release).

It’s a sure bet that the interview will be a hot topic on The View, as well.

The media blitz will certainly cover everything from Palin’s disastrous Katie Couric interview to her infighting with John McCain’s campaign staff to her views on the current administration, including notes on now Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.
