Just heard on Hannity with Ann Coulter that she's stepping down July 25.
What ever you do Gov. Palin, God bless you and thank you!

She’s not only not seeking re-election. She’s resigning at the end of July. Hannity and Coulter are behind.
SARAH PALIN PING!
Disregard the previous post. I just read the blasted headline — so sue me.
“What ever you do Gov. Palin, God bless you and thank you!”
I second that.
Duh! To run for president.
I just came in and Coulter was on with Hannity’s guest host they said Palin’s stepping down on the 25 while DRUDGE just went red and is saying 26th.
Being a governor of a state gave her credibility. A second term would have solidified that. Giving it up after 3 years is foolish in my opinion. She will still have a platform and she’ll be able to travel the lower 48, but quitting the governorship will confirm most peoples’ doubts that she is too inexperienced to run for president.
The media have successfully “Dan Quayled” her. No future. Shame.....
OK - Hope it’s true. I guess we can all hope for a return to the days when presidential elections didn’t really ramp up until the late winter/early spring OF THE ELECTION YEAR!
If she could take away the 60th Senate seat she would help more than Gov.
Pray for America and Gov Palin
Also speculation she's running for US Senate. to get DC experience.
We'll see soon enough.
And they would be the same people that voted for Obama.
WASILLA, Alaska (AP) - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she will resign from office July 26.
Her spokesman wouldn't say why Palin decided to step down, but the announcement stirred speculation that she would focus on a bid for the 2012 Republican nomination for president.
Spokesman Dave Murrow says Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell will be inaugurated at the governor's picnic in Fairbanks at the end of the month.
No way that she could run if she did not even finish her first and only term. I am a conservative and even I have a problem with that.
I suspect she is protecting her family. That should be her first priority. They have been savaged by the liberals and rinos.
Maybe she’ll be enrolling in some foreign policy classes at the local university/sarc. She has to be free to leave the state and attend events, fundraise, without yappy FReepers and liberals attacking her for not doing the job she was elected to do.
I like Sarah and detest MSNBC.
I don’t know if Sarah leaving office now is, or will be, a good or bad thing for her - I think time will prove that, not ANYONE’S opinion on it right now.
I do think that if she is leaving the Governor’s job now, to focus on national political ambitions, it is too early.
I thought some others, like Romney for instance, were already active in trying to resurrect their last POTUS run, and there also I thought it was too early.
One of the problem is staking very strong positions,
voiced specifically on conditions existent and present, when many conditions are still fluid and changing.
People frequently ignore principles, but less quickly forget politicians predictions that proved wrong; and if the people forget those predictions their opponents certainly will not.
I would advise Palin et al to at least wait until the start of the 2010 Congressional election primary season.
