  • I dunno..Google didn't come up with much. I hope all is well in her family though. This seems pretty surprising.

    Maybe she's going to go on the road and start a campaign for 2012..who knows.

  • It's not about her family. It's either to avoid the spotlight she's pointed at herself and her family or it's to get ready for 2012...

    "She thinks she has accomplished goals she has set forward," a source, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said. "She sees what a positive influence she has had on people's lives from traveling the country in the last year."


    In an interview last month with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, Palin said she was unsure about her re-election bid because she needed to focus on her state and her family.


    "So, no decision yet on either 2010 or let alone 2012?" Blitzer asked.


    "No decision that I'd want to announce today," Palin responded.

  • There is speculation on DU that she is ducking ethics charges but who knows. It seems odd to quit gov mid term to prep for a presidential race in 3 years.
