UPDATE: Palin To Resign As Alaska Governor UPDATE: KTUU-TV in Anchorage reports that Palin not only won't seek re-election, but will resign later this month.
ORIGINAL POST: Gov. Sarah Palin (R) has announced she will not run for re-election in 2010, CNN reports. She's scheduled to make an announcement shortly.
The decision frees Palin to travel in the Lower 48 as she considers a potential run for president in 2012. A re-election campaign could also have been tough on the former vice presidential nominee; her approval rating has dropped from stratospheric highs, and a number of candidates in both parties are said to be considering runs.
Even if she won, the race would have been dominated by the specter of a presidential bid, giving her adversaries an opportunity to wound her politically. She's still fending off ethics complaints, many spurred by the "Troopergate" scandal.

More likely it will be 2016.
US Senate in 2010?
Wow...I’m not sure how bright this move is.
Still not voting for Romney.
Why, you live in Alaska?
She may just be leaving politics all together. Resigning as a first term governor wouldn’t make sense politically to me. She may just want to raise her child and end the dirty attacks on her and her family.
No decent American would want to take the attacks, hatred and beatings she has endured from the Commie DemocRATS and their little toadies in the state run “media”. I don’t blame her. “American” politics is for kneecap busting thugs, Commie scum and greedy pigs these days. If you don’t meet that criteria, you shouldn’t be in politics.
This is not good.
She’s running away to Argentina with Mark Sanford.
(I can wish, can't I?)
LOL, we have a winner.
She probably has decided that she and her family being destroyed day after day after day in the vicious media just ain’t worth it.
She could literally be dead, and they would still flame you if you expressed ANY doubts about her being able to win. lol
I like Palin but have been sceptical of her prospects.
It is a complement to say that she’s not cut out for the despicable and degenerate world of contemporary national politics in America.
She really deserves much better than our politics would inflict on her.
I’m with you. She has a disabled son to care for, an unmarried daughter with a baby, and two other daughters that “need their mom.” I don’t know why people assume there’s something ON her. I think she got sick of the attacks on her children and she is protecting THEM.
I posted on another thread that I hope there hasn’t been a serious threat on her and her family.
She has had to endure more personally and about her family.
She is the only one I care for in 2012.
And it ain’t!
