Palin booed when mentions Hillary

Sarah Palin is no Hillary Clinton.

Perhaps mentioning a liberal Democrat at a Republican rally isn't such a good idea.

Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was booed tonight when she said Sen. Hillary Clinton's name.

At the Consol Energy ballfield in Washington, Pennsylvania, Palin delivered essentially the same biographical stump speech as she did in Dayton, Ohio on Friday, pointing out that it is almost 80 years to the day since women in the United States got the right to vote..

But this time, when she mentioned the women who came before her citing the history-making nomination of Geraldine Ferraro, as well as Clinton's "determination and grace" in the 2008 Democratic primary, boos greeted Palin. They were long and loud near the press section.

Palin plowed on, noting that Clinton got 18 million cracks in the highest, hardest ceiling and "it turns out the women of America aren't finished yet."
