UPDATE: MSNBC is now reporting that sources tell Andrea Mitchell that Palin is out of politics for good. They indicate this is NOT a first step in a 2012 campaign for President but her decision to shift from political candidate to some sort of pundit type.
I agree that there certainly seems to be more behind this story that meets the eye, perhaps a new scandal or possibly some personal family issue.
While most of us were thinking we might see a Governor resign sometime this week, it turns out to be a different person than expected. Former VP nominee Sarah Palin has announced she will resign as Governor effective on July 25, 2009.
One wonders how this will impact her political future, to the degree that she has one.
