If you can’t fight off jive attacks with the power of the Governorship, how less so without that power. Time will tell.

If she thinks she is being attacked now, she needs to know it is much worse when you live on Pennslyvania Ave, and you just go and resign from that when it gets nasty.

Hell, she did a wonderful job. She gave McCain political CPR. But she will have to take the lipstick off now.... if she wants to start chewing up obambi in 2012.

Sorry, but I find your opinion just plain wrong.

She explained herself quite well even mentioning that 80% of her time was fighting off false charges (and winning all of them) and that it was costing both the State of Alaska and her family many millions of dollars.

She, if you had bothered to listen to her resignation speech, made it quite clear that she was not quiting or sitting down but basically she was going to keep fighting and was looking for (My paraphrasing) a higher office or more important thing to do.

Next time, you might want to listen to the related speech and get all the details before you post your opinion.

She very successfully fought off all of the attacks, both those from public figures like Letterman and those from pricks who tried to tie her up legally with false charges.

She has fought all along and NOTHING in her speech or her previous actions would provide you or anyone else with the idea that she was giving up or could be construed as showing her as weak.

Nice try, quit being a tool of the Democrats, the Media, and GOP elite.

I couldn’t agree more.

As governor she had the bully pulpit. Now she has nothing.

She should learn from history, what happened to her hero, Teddy Roosevelt when he quit and then tried for a comeback. It don’t work!
