If Palin is planning a Presidential run, her resignation will definitely come back to haunt her. I don't think it was a good move on her part, but it is still her decision. As per usual, the typical "I hate Palin" crowd is here to lob personal insults at her all the while claiming that they don't feel threatened by her. If you don't feel threatened, you wouldn't feel the need to resort to this. Is it really so hard to see past your partisan blinders and have even a sliver of respect for someone that you don't agree with politically? I don't agree with her politically, but I still think that it was a very bold move. If she manages to go against all odds and become a worthy candidate regardless of all of this stuff I will be thoroughly impressed and many of the people who have resorted to personal attacks and insults will be eating their own words.
Aside: Re: Her stupidity...We're not just talking about gaffes here. This woman simply does not know things. Here she couldn't name a single SCOTUS case she disagrees with beyond Roe v. Wade. Here she speaks of the mythical 'Department of Law'. The list goes on and on (speaking of the VP's ability to make policy in the Senate, not being able to name a newspaper she reads regularly, etc. etc.). Simply put, she just doesn't have the brain-power to run this country.

That doesn't explain why a lot of Conservatives also believe she is a joke, and expressed their ridicule against Palin both before and after the election.
The Conservative Case Against Sarah Palin
Doubts about Palin grow, even among Conservatives.
Some on the right are joining a chorus of criticism over Sarah Palin
Conservatives who don't think much of Palin include Matthew Dowd (a former Bush strategist), William Kristol (noted Neocon who said McCain should fire his campaign for malpractice, in their bringing Palin on board), Christopher Buckley (son of William F. Buckley), Kathleen Parker (columnist for the Neconservative magazine National Review), David Brooks (noted Conservative, who called Palin a fatal cancer to the Republican party), David Frum (noted Conservative, who called the pick of Palin "irresponsible"), and there are many other Conservatives who believe Palin is not fit to hold office.
But to you, they are all just Libs, right? Sheesh. Your "Only Libs criticize Palin" dog don't hunt no more. Try a real argument with a little substance next time you post.

It may even be a significant positive if the nation turns "anti-government". She's set up to take advantage of that.
Besides she could be running 2016 or never. I don't think she will run for an office to merely use it to cash a paycheck while she runs for another office like O someone..one of her reasons for "quitting" was not to do just that afterall.
2012 Hillary is going to run.

However, on the chance that you do NOT agree with my first response, here is my reasoning:
Do you, or do you not, agree that someone can better themselves?
If you agree, does this not mean that what someone becomes is more important than their past?
Thus my response.
This is, of course, not to say that someone's past ever ceases to be a factor.
