Sarah Palin: Error Or Political Engineering?

There’s no one on the planet that has any higher regard for Governor Palin than I do!! I-as do an army of others-see her potential on the political scene, but I wonder under what pretext Ms Palin resigned her governorship? One sure positive result of her resignation is to stop all the baseless, unfounded ethics “violations” she’s been charged with.
