Sarah Palin, the Republican Alaska governor who captivated the nation with
a combative brand of folksy politics, announced her resignation yesterday
in characteristic fashion: She stood on her back lawn in Wasilla, speaking
into a single microphone, accompanied by friends and neighbors in baseball
hats and polo shirts.


The announcement that she will step down by the end of July stunned the
political establishment, fueling speculation about why she is leaving
office with 18 months left in her first term and whether her future will
include a run for the presidency.

Palin offered few clues about her ambitions but said she arrived at her
decision in part to protect her family, which has faced withering
criticism and occasional mockery, and to escape ethics probes that have
drained her family's finances and hampered her ability to govern. She said
leaving office is in the best interest of the state and will allow her to
more effectively advocate for issues of importance to her, including
energy independence and national security.

"I love my job and I love Alaska, and it hurts to make this choice, but
I'm doing what's best for them," Palin said, the sun glinting off a
seaplane on Lake Lucille behind her.

Palin, 45, said that, after deciding not to run for reelection as
governor, she realized she did not want to finish out her term merely for
the sake of doing so.
