In an election campaign notable for its surprises, Sarah Palin, the 
Republican vice- presidential candidate, may be about to spring a new 
one — the wedding of her pregnant teenage daughter to her 
ice-hockey-playing fiancé before the November 4 election.

Inside John McCain’s campaign the expectation is growing that there will 
be a popularity boosting pre-election wedding in Alaska between Bristol 
Palin, 17, and Levi Johnston, 18, her schoolmate and father of her baby. 
“It would be fantastic,” said a McCain insider. “You would have every TV 
camera there. The entire country would be watching. It would shut down 
the race for a week.”

There is already some urgency to the wedding as Bristol, who is six 
months pregnant, may not want to walk down the aisle too close to her 
date of delivery. She turns 18 on October 18, a respectable age for a 
bride — and the same age as Barack Obama’s pregnant mother when she 
married his Kenyan father. The Democrat has already declared Bristol’s 
private life off-limits as far as his campaign is concerned.
