Palin Resignation A Big Mistake
If Gov. Sara Palin's decision to resign her office later this month is to allow more time to campaign for president in 2012, I think she is making a big mistake. Palin has been the unfair subject of dozens of ethics complaints filed by partisan Democrats as a result of her vice presidential campaign last year, which has caused her to incur hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal bills. Leaving office more than a year before the end of her term looks like she's escaping the heat of the kitchen rather than finishing the job to which Alaska voters elected her. I wish her well, but I'm disappointed in her decision.
