    I realize she had legitimate reasons for quitting. I'm just saying that many won't see it that way and will use it as ammo. It will do a significant amount of damage because many (on both sides of the political spectrum) aren't willing to look at it as logically as you are. Republicans do need to back her up, but I don't think they will because she's too much of a risk to them. They want a victory and will most likely go for what they consider to be a sure thing. Many Republicans see her as a liability.

    What the republicans need to do is quit backing Rinos/liberals like McCain,ROmney and Giuliani. The republicans want to win regardless of how far they have to sellout.

    She quit because it was costing Alaska too much to keep her there,
    How,she was elected governor. It is not her fault if the local state representatives refuse to work with her.

    and because her kids were being abused.

    Who abused them,did someone beat them up? Media cracking jokes is not abuse.

    I think she'll be forgiven for quitting for those reasons.
    No she won't. You seem to the think the liberal media loves Palin. They hate her. At most they may pretend to love her in order to eliminate better candidates and then when the primaries are over they nail her for quitting they nail for flip flopping on the bridge to nowhere,they nail her for all kinds of other reasons.Or they might nail her before the primaries are over if there is a weaker candidate than Palin. Obama was a political nobody who won the presidency despite associating with a unrepentant terrorist and despite attending a anti-American racist church for 20 years.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Reminds me of when Ross Perot quit and then decided to run again. The rationale was strikingly similar.

    No it was not and only partisan hack with misfiring neurons in his skull would think it was.

    Perot dropped out supposedly because of the impact it was having on him and his family. That's basically what Palin's saying.

    From my perspective, her quitting looks like cowardice and an admission that she is incapable of fulfilling the job. Which means she is even less qualified for the presidency than I initially thought.

    I think in general she is a bit out of her league for how cutthroat the political world is nowadays. You have to be willing to take it as much as you can dish it out. Granted, I don't think that people's family should even be involved, but they are going to use whatever they can to attack and if that includes family so be it. They are unscrupulous bastards, so you have to be one right back.

    I wouldn't say that it requires being unscrupulous, and I'm generalizing terribly here, but I would say that being a politician requires a thicker skin than Palin has.

    It's not enough to be able to kill and skin a moose, you have to be able to take a pretty harsh blow to the face, and keep on punching. Clearly, Palin lacks the stomach for that sort of thing. But, there are plenty of other women in politics who seem to do just fine.
