A Canadian conservative is one who believes in limited government and that the government should stay out of our wallets and out of our bedrooms.
part of the reason she quit was because of the shear amount of public records requests from folks looking to dig up dirt ( along with the costs incurred to her personally and the state, for battling alleged ethics violations).
wiki notes that 239 requests were made.. 189 after she was chosen as McCains running mate... that's a lot of requests that state attorneys had to sift through and decide on.
(it was entertaining when her emails were released.... and there was no evil "dirt" was found... partisan witchhunts are entertaining to me, especially when they end in a whimper instead of a bang))
her being chosen as a running mate is what ultimately doomed her governorship
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year old's life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world.

Heck, almost every election there's a Governor that becomes a Senator or vice versa. Some states will even allow a person to be on the ballot for two different offices - when Lloyd Bentsen was Dukakis' running mate in '88, he was also up for re-election to the Senate (which he won).
Palin left to be on TV and now 5 years later is saying "Maybe I'll run for Senate." Honestly, I don't think she'll actually do it. Just saying it puts her back in the public eye.
