Palin stepping down?

What's up with that? If you don't finish your term in one office, how can you run for another with an expectation of getting a subsequent office?

OTOH, there could be a serious situation that she or a family member is facing that needs her attention. Deal is, she needs to say so that the public and media won't speculate and spread rumors that will take ages to overcome.

    Something's definitely fishy with this. If you're trying to run for president (like she states she wants to do in 2012), you don't give up your governor seat. It doesn't make sense.
    That's right, I said it! I wear scrunchies!!

    She made the statement in her speech: You'll just have to trust me.

    Yeah...right. It's only a matter of time til some enterprising reporter digs out the real reason.

    Winners never quit, and quitters never win.

    I just watched her resignatin speech in it's entirety, and, I have to say...WTF?

    Does she EVER speak in complete sentences? Does she ever make sense? Is it just me being dense, or is she illiterate?

    My husband likes her more than me, but he feels this way about her. He thinks she looks like a quitter by walking away a year early. Once you commit to something he feels you should stick to it. He has lost some faith in her because of this move.

    I just saw the video and I have no idea what she was talking about. Bottom line for me is she cannot handle public office and is unreliable.

    Thankies. I watched and all I could think of was WHO wrote her speech? A 4th grader? Her sentences were so...choppy and awkward-sounding. And her cadence was weird too. "I can make change in Alaska...from the outside."

    The only thing I really understood was her analogy about the basketball player. Everything else seemed disjointed and awkward.

    I think that she hastily wrote it herself. No competent speech writer would write that.... I hope.

    She also misquoted. I think a speech writer would have caught that and would have checked the source of the quote.

    It was not MacArthur who said "We're not retreating. We're advancing in another direction." It was the more obscure (in civilian terms anyway) General Oliver Smith.

    There's alot of speculation that she is leaving because of some type of scandal (the obvious reason). But other political strategists and the like are saying that now she has the time to educate herself in politics, mingle with the big wig GOP party heads, and get a lot of financial backing. Another reason for the abrupt resignation is she may just want to focus on her family. Personally, I think something's up...

    In the words of General MacArthur said, “We are not retreating. We are advancing in another direction.”

    Aside from the misquote, this isn't even a coherent sentence.

    Wall Street Journal opinion piece said she has over $500,000 in legal bills from dealing with Alaska Freedom of Information Act requests dealing with ethics issues. I say where there is smoke there is fire. She just comes across as a narcissistic quitter. I'm waiting for the other shoe to fall. Or...she made a deal with someone to leave in return for silence.

    my only feelings about her resigning is "oh well." i understood what she said though. it would have been easier if she summed it all up in four words " i have had enough!" i think she plans on finding a new calling. probably humanitarian work, so maybe she can be at home a little more for her baby trig.

    Watching this for the first time. I agree with Suburban.

    That speech was...wild. I don't even understand what she was saying. It sounds like a bunch of talking points. Typical.

    We dodged a bullet. This woman could have been our vice president.

    I think what she means when she says this has been in the works for a while is she was planning on resigning if she became vice president...
