JUNEAU, Alaska – Outgoing Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin on Saturday laid the groundwork to take on a larger, national role after leaving state government, citing a "higher calling" with the aim of uniting the country along conservative lines.
A day after surprising even her closest friends by announcing she would step down as Alaska governor more than a year before her term was up, the controversial hockey mom was still keeping details of her future plans under wrap. But in a statement posted on Palin's Facebook account, she suggested that she had bigger plans and a national agenda she planned to push after she resigns at the end of the month.
"I am now looking ahead and how we can advance this country together with our values of less government intervention, greater energy independence, stronger national security, and much-needed fiscal restraint," she said.

citing a "higher calling" with the aim of uniting the country along conservative lines.
I guess she didn't read all the articles about how she is splitting her party with her antics...Saying she will speak at events, then saying she never confirmed then showing up anyways....and now that her e-mails during the campaign are coming out they are causing more of a split, not to mention fighting with the pubs in Alaska/ If she couldn't unite anyone THEN what makes her think she can do it now?

I think it is disgraceful that she is abandoning the state that elected her. She doesn't have anything new going on then what she had while running for Vice President. Would she have given that up? NO. She is following her own interests and those of the state be damned. What a joke.
This. Yeah, she cares about the people who trusted her and put their state in her hands.
