Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin will make what her office is only calling an "announcement" at 11 AM local (3 Eastern) from her home in Wasilla.
Speculation is raging both in Alaska and in the Lower 48 that she'll reveal her plans regarding next year's gubernatorial race.
So much for today being a slow news day.
Most likely not running for re-election.
That was taken in NY City, look at the way those cops are ogling her. LOL
Just turned on Fox. They’re standing by for it, so I guess it’ll be televised.
On a Friday just before a long holiday weekend. Seems like kind of a strange time.
I sure hope she isn’t caving to the attacks from the scurvy sewer-dwelling left.
Friday afternoon is usually a time for bad newz known as the Friday evening ‘newsdump’. Sandy Berger used it to his advantage when he was found guilty and apologized ... the public hardly evev knew about it.
With lots of folks at home today and tomorrow being the 4th of July this just might be a major announcement.
Why make a major speech on a Friday ? Because there is nothing conventional about Sarah. She loves to surprise people. She is like LBJ in this sense. I He made an annoucement about not running for re-election, when half of his family and most of his staff had no idea. they found out watching tv.
Here is a possibility.
Watch her say something about retiring from politics. to get the media off of her back. and then she can go to work on her 2012 Campaign for President.
I was wondering why no news yet then I realized Alaska is 1 hour behind Washington State. Should be any minute now.
Perfect timing for all those tea parties tomorrow. If she’s not going for re-election as governor to free her up for a presidential run, that will surely get the buzz going.
CNN is reporting as breaking news that she is not running for re-election as gov.
Let the races begin!!!
It’d be okay with me if she resigned her current post and concentrated full time on winning in 2012.
Its 3. What is it? I am cubicle-bound.
Could be those hot 4-inch stilettos, tho. Damn, she looks good. No wonder the Left completely loses their marbles whenever Palin's in front of the cameras.
I think she needs to go to the Senate first, to get more familiar with how DC operates, before running for POTUS. I just don’t think right now she can win 2012, based on just being the governor of Alaska.
She pretty much has to in order to run. Alaskan laws are highly restrictive about any business other than state business.
