Palin's advocacy pledge prompts mixed reactions

Republican vice presidential nominee Gov. Sarah Palin -- who has a son with Down syndrome and a nephew with autism -- vowed last week at the Republican National Convention to be "a friend and advocate" to people with disabilities and their families. Some parents welcomed the pledge, while others questioned her motives. Some Alaskan families say that people with disabilities did not appear to be a priority for Palin during the 20 months she has served as governor.
