he political world got turned upside down this week when former 2008 Republican vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin announced that she was resigning as governor of Alaska. There’s a lot of speculation on why she would resign 18 months before the end of her first term and what she should do with her immediate future. Family concerns, the 2012 presidential election, and a possible ethics scandal are the top three.
My advice is for Palin to move her family to California, run for governor in 2010, clean up the state budget mess that Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger had failed to fix since 2003, and claim Ronald Reagan’s legacy by running for the presidency in 2012.
Seriously, if the Governator can’t clean up in Sacramento, maybe Caribou Barbie can do a better job.
(Otherwise, I’m supporting Tom Campbell to win in next year’s governor election.)
