Sarah Palin Caribou Jerky

When Rand Paul took to the Senate floor to filibuster President Barack Obama’s choice for CIA director, a conservative ally in Alaska took notice – and headed to the post office.

“I sent him some caribou jerky from Alaska to help keep up his strength on the Senate floor,” Sarah Palin writes in this week’s “Time 100” issue. “There’s more where that came from for this bold Senator with 20/20 vision willing to take a stand for liberty.”

The former Alaska governor and 2008 GOP vice presidential nominee’s glowing blurb on the Kentucky senator is one of several political write-ups penned by fellow leaders in the annual list of influencers published by Time.

Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, honoring Obama, recalls his trip last year to Burma, the first for an American president.

“This was American leadership at its best,” wrote Clinton, who was Obama’s rival in the 2008 Democratic presidential primary, but who repaired ties during her tenure as the nation’s top diplomat.
