Palin Bails Out on Alaska
She's going broke, facing ethics probes and slip-sliding away popularity, so what does she do... quits and runs, how nice!
Palin faces questions as she exits Alaska politics
By MATTHEW DALY, Associated Press Writer Matthew Daly, Associated Press Writer – 2 hrs 17 mins ago
ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Gov. Sarah Palin gained fame — and to some infamy — since she embarked on a vice-presidential bid less than a year ago.
AP – Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, right, hugs Theresa Thomas after giving her a flag in appreciation for her dad, …
Her surprising departure from Alaska's top office is gaining her something else: questions over her motives and next big move.
She leaves office Sunday with her political future clouded by ethics probes, mounting legal bills and dwindling popularity. A new Washington Post-ABC poll puts her favorability rating at 40 percent, with 53 percent giving her an unfavorable rating.
The Republican governor also faces an array of queries about why she is quitting more than year before her term ends and what she plans to do after she steps down.

Short of a misguided attempt to lure Hillary's supporters from the Obama camp thorugh a gender selection, her pick by Grandpa McCain made no real sense to me. If you wanted an RR choice why not Huckabee?

Worst VP choice since...umm...
Romney might have carried states promising jobs for auto workers.
I believe Obama was "the chosen one" regardless, considering his wall street connections and ethnic support.
I'm surprised he didn't win by more.
