    Palin Dodges Talk of Running for Governor Again

    Alaska Gov. Sarah has fueled speculation that she'll seek the Republican presidential nomination in 2012 by declining to say — at least for now — whether she will run for re-election in Alaska next year.

    Asked by CNN's Wolf Blitzer if she definitely plans to run for re-election, Palin said: "I'm not definitely going to do anything yet.

    "What I'm trying to get done for Alaska right now is to get that Alaska [natural] gas line built. We need those energy sources flowing through North America. That's what my focus is. That and raising my family, doing those good things that we need done up there in Alaska. That's my focus."

    Blitzer asked: "So, no decision yet on either 2010 or let alone 2012, is that right?

    The former GOP vice presidential candidate responded: "No decision that I'd want to announce today."

    Running for re-election would be "a move unlikely for someone seeking the White House," CNN observed.

    According to the Los Angeles Times, "other Alaskan politicians are positioning themselves for a governor's bid should she drop out."

    Asked by Blitzer for her thoughts on President Barack Obama, Palin said she thinks he is "growing government way too quickly."

    What does this mean? Does it mean that if she decides to run again that she will go unchallenged? 2010 is only a year away. Why would she not want to make the statement that she is or is not running again?

    Is she talking about the same pipeline that she was touting on the campaign trail as one of her major accomplishments in Alaska?
    Has the building of this pipeline even started yet?
    How can she pay attention to these things when she is squabbleing with a Television comedian?

    Yeah, she's talking about that one. She neglected to discuss the pipeline with the numerous First Nations along the way. They're all ready to file suit. I believe it's probably dead in the water given the complex negotiations it's going to take to even get a plan in motion, much less execute it.

    Are you saying that Palin negelected the legal ramifications of pushing her dream pipeline past Native American tribes and the pipeline will never get off the ground?

    I wonder if this all comes because finally got a subscription to The Economist...

    That's what she's saying but she's dead wrong. Alaska takes care of its natives almost religiously. Many of the "first nations" (aka, native corporations) are pushing the pipeline harder than she is. They will make bank off it.

    The Tribes here generally prefer to be called "Native Alaskans."

    A number of them are heavily involved in mining, petroleum, timber, commercial fishing and other resource extraction industries.

    The Lefites are busy trying to find a Roman Prelate to hear trumped up charges against Mrs. Palin. That technique has served similar political intriguers in the past.

    Palin took office in 2006 as the first female governor of Alaska; her first term expires in December 2010.

    Doesn't she have to win reelection in 2010? Or not run?

    Palin's pipeline to nowwhere...

    Palin?s Pipeline to Nowhere | Newsweek Periscope | Newsweek.com

    The principal achievement of Sarah Palin's term as Alaska's governor, a natural-gas pipeline project backed by $500 million in state tax money, might never be built unless Canadian authorities can strike a deal with some of the country's angry Indian tribes. Approximately half of the proposed pipeline would run through Canada; native tribes who live along its route complain they haven't been consulted about it and are threatening to sue unless they are compensated. Representatives of the canadian tribes, known as First Nations, say Palin and other pipeline proponents are treating them with disrespect. The tribes' lawyers warn that the courts are on their side and say the Indians have the power to delay the pipeline for years—or even kill it entirely by filing endless lawsuits.
