Today Governor Sara Palin (R) of Alaska has announced that she will be resigning as of July 26th. This comes as a surprise to many Americans as well as political analysts.
She has decided not to finish out her first term as Governor of the state of Alaska. In a new conference in her home town of Wasilla, she stated “We know we can effect positive change outside government at this moment in time on another scale and actually make a difference for our priorities,” “I know when it’s time to pass the ball for victory.”
Palin, 45 was put in the spotlight after Senator John McCain nominated her to be his running mate. Throughout the campaign she was disrespected and insulted by the main stream media. From the way I see it, the Democratic party as well as candidate Obama felt threaten by her.
Unfortunately, this latest move might be the end to her political career. Leaving the Governor’s office after only fulfilling half of her term might make it hard for the Republican party to consider her again fro a national position. I could be wrong since politics and politicians have never thought logically.
Whatever Sara Palin and her family decide to do in the future, I want to wish her the best for them.
