Sarah Palin and her family have captivated voters since the Alaska governor was tapped to be John McCain's running mate in a surprise decision on Aug. 29.

Republicans have touted her corruption-fighting record, her small-town values and the energy many say she brings to the GOP ticket. Democrats have assailed her experience level and her position on abortion, while others have focused intently on her teenage daughter’s pregnancy.

But Palin has only been in the national spotlight for a short time, and there's plenty more to know about a woman seeking to become the first female vice president of the United States.

For an intimate look at the family life of the GOP's vice presidential nominee, tune in Sunday night at 9 p.m. for an encore presentation of FOX News’ special documentary, “Governor Sarah Palin: An American Woman,” hosted by Greta Van Susteren.
