I think she is going to bow out "in order to spend more time with my family". She probably will be forced to resign as Alaska gov to make it work. The amazing thing to me is that local Alaska people knew it has always been her husband calling the shots, and when he isn't around, she's toast. Her major talent is she knows all the buzz words to set a Pentacostal crowd of fucked up rightwingers into a mass orgasm, which works because that describes the average voter in her state, but it ain't gonna work in a general election. Sad for Alaska, that some pipeline worker with a high school education has been the real person running their state. McCain is not going to let the presidency slip away like that, he is going to dump her and make it look like it was her idea, or he is going to lose after this fucking turkey spends an hour with Joe Biden and the national press. Advantage: Bobby Jindal, the guy he should have picked.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
