Shes probably tired of all the BS, scruitiny, and distrust everyone has been giving her.

However if she plans to remain in politics, it is a bad choice for her to step down. She effectivly makes it look like she can't handle the pressure. Which will lead people to think she won't be able to handle similar jobs in the future.

I agree. Scrutiny distrust and constant pressure are par for the course in modern politics though so it makes me wonder-and this is just thinking out loud-if there isn't something else. I doubt the whole story will ever be made public. Some contend that everyone has a right to privacy but these are usually the same folks who want the whole scoop on anyone in the public eye when a little dirt surfaces. I laughed out loud when I heard people questioning Al Franken's new political career-whats one more comedian in American politics?

Yeah, the entire reason I don't pay attention to politics is that 90% of what is being said, is misguided stretched accusations

Knowing that todays edition of the paper hit the presses before this announcement I stilll found the articles on pages A-5 and A-13 pretty funny and very close to being ironic. The timing is still baffling though and I will probably follow this story out of sheer morbid curiosity. I read the transcript of the speech she made announcing her decision looking for a straight answer. No luck-my eyes actually started to glass over with all the tangents and non-sequiters. I guess time will tell.

Apparently she quit because of the stress/strain all of the bad/gossip/crap media coverage put on her family, no other politician has gotten as much bad media coverage as her and her family, espectially for as long as they have been putting up with it. I could understand if it was just her, but they have been attacking her entire family and that's a bunch of bs.

I really don't think she is stepping down to get ready for the 2012 election, that just looks bad on her part and I know she loves this state enough to not bail out on us unless it was something much more important, like her family.

I sure as hell hope Sean Parnell is ready to be governor.

but you would not have gotten it had it not been for her. So you benefited positively from her being in office.

If she can't handle the stress now, and can't "play the politics" or whatever it was she said, how does she expect to handle being president? (which will never happen anyway)

Typical political spin from the left. Quit being the key word.

judging from his post, I'm assuming he's referring to the press.

Maybe Rhonda McCloud will step up, NOT, as she is the primary ethics filer. Wish she had to pay the fees that the Pailns are now looking at. SAD.....
