Thought this might interest you, since you once blogged about Obama's failure to take advantage of tax-advantaged savings. Here is Governor Palin's financial disclosure form. Turns out her husband is a rather astute saver -- taking advantage of both his company's (BP) 401(k) plan and setting up (pre-1996) a SAR-SEP IRA for his commercial fishing business. He's also nicely diversified in various funds, both domestic and international.
