Palin vows to be more accessible in coming weeks

Sarah Palin is vowing to take more questions from voters and reporters in the final month before the election.

Since John McCain selected her to be his vice presidential running mate, Palin has granted only a handful of interviews and done few campaign events solo. But now she's declaring "my life is certainly an open book."

In an interview with Fox News, Palin says she looks forward to "speaking to the media more and more every day and providing whatever access the media" wants.

On another matter, Palin says she's disappointed that the McCain campaign decided to stop competing in Michigan. She says she "fired off an e-mail" this morning questioning the move.

Palin says people in Michigan "are hurting" because of the economic downtown, and she'd like to walk through the state's auto plants and speak to them about it.
