People have been asking me about Governor Palin's resignation. My standard answer is always the same: I don't know why she did it and I don't know what she will do. She gave a lengthy press conference, outlining the accomplishments of her administration and taking generous swings at her enemies and the media. She spent very little time actually explaining why she is quitting. She said during her press conference that she believes she can do more for Alaska and America as a private citizen than as a Governor. So following that line of thought, I think we could watch for Governor Palin to stay busy within the Republican Party. She remains popular among rank and file GOP even since her announcement, and she could be a very prominent figure in the upcoming midterm elections as GOP hopefuls look to her to headline fundraisers and give speeches in support of their campaigns.
