Palin Opts Against Run for Second Term as Alaska Governor - Political News - FOXNews.com
This makes no sense. She's got a hell of a future ahead of her... you can't just quit as governor without finishing your first term! She's going to ruin her potential!
This isn't unexpected.... In fact I called this last November after the election. But oddly enough, I believed then and still do now that instead of a Presidential run, she's thinking the Senate seat.
Of course for me to believe that means I must believe she has a strategic brain either in her skull or somewhere in her organization. And that of course remains to be seen.
I agree with David, it makes no sense to resign.
I do not think this has anything to do with her interest in running as Senate, or President! She has had enough of the BS and I don't blame her one bit.
if you are right, she's finished with politics
Actually, scratch what I just said. There is no reason to resign as Governor if you're going to run for US Senate. So this tells me she is going to make a POTUS run, very poor strategy. She would be a shoo-in for the Senate, then from there could run for POTUS in 2016.
As it is, I have doubts she would get the GOP nomination for POTUS, and have no doubt that if she did, she would lose to the Dem candidate.
Her brother Chuck just stated that the "the time she has spent with the charges, and media BS she said it wasn't fair to the state or her family and got to the point where she had to do something about it."
Who will the DEMS and REP pick on now?
