    Personally I do not care, I am from a State that starts with A but it is not Alaska, this is for the citizens of Alaska to decide. With that said the crap she has put up with is more than anyone should have to put up with. In addition to the mindless ridicule of a mental miget like Letterman, some of you might have forgotten she has a son serving in Iraq. Unless you have spent the sleepless nights that go with that you will never know the incredible pressure of having a son or daughter who is in harm's way.

    A lot of us like Sarah. The attacks on her from those that apparently feel threatened in some way has been way beyond partisan politics in fact it borders on mindless hatred. That being said I wish her success in whatever comes next.

    She is quite young yet. If she intends to continue her political career, she could probably benefit from taking a RNC position or a Congressional position. I really don't think she'd be a good choice for the national ticket in '12 I think she really needs to get to know the DC ropes better ... have a personal familiarity with the "players".

    Actually I think that it was that last factor could have stood McCain in good stead had he been able to win the election. It occurs to me that if many of the people on this forum, even those who may have voted for Obama, could discern that he was lacking in executive experience, this could not escape those in the Congress who would be working with him. In the quest to get another D in the Presidency, they did not break ranks, but that may change if BHO doesn't show them the deference they expect. There are indications that he may not do that over the long haul when he gets frustrated.

    Seems like yesterday BHO had on his Biden hat ... praising Russia's Medved while doing a put-down on Putin, while acknowledging that Putin would still have considerable sway in Russia's political actions. I can't believe he said what he did! Even if it is what he was thinking, it was, IMO, a major gaffe to give it voice in an AP interview. If the interview was "scripted", the scriptwriter should be fired. If it wasn't scripted, this man is way over his head when it comes to diplomatic skills, and he should make sure he gets some scripts. Even the NY Times gave Medved credit for being more diplomatic than BHO. BHO could have, and should have, taken a similar tack.

    It is probably best for Alaska, and she probably should have stepped down when she was in the race for VP.

    I wouldn't doubt it if she was setting up to take a Senate seat after a short time off.

    The hate and attacks that Palin continues to get from the left means they are very scared of her. Someone else will pop out of nowhere to take 2012 from the facist party. I understand exactly what the left is scared of, and frankly many in power, and as the facebook/myspace generation become strong voters in 4 to 8 years, they will have power that the media won't be able to phase.

    Personally, I think that's the major problem in DC. We need to get rid of all these professional politicians and their "handlers, to get back to what the (little "r") republican form of government is supposed to be about. Ala Thomas Paine's "Common Sense". The Elected would never vote a rod against the Electors because they knew they would have to go back and endure it themselves in a few short years.
    Palin threatens the "players" which is one reason she is so viciously attacked.

    I like her for what she stands for but by know way will I ever vote for her to be in the presidency. She needs more years to understand the role she is taking. Anytime she has a mike in front of her she proves she isn't prepared for the post.
    Never take things for granted.
