I am ready to put it all to bed. We have a new president and we should support him.

I wish the Republic base would lay off Sarah Palin. They are really going over the top with their criticism of her. She did the best she could with what she had to offer and with little prep by her own party.

i have hear alot on her, and missed alot, but the man that worked with her, when preparing said she is smart, and has a fantastic memory, she has a huge job in alaska, with all the energy, and she has a very high defense security clearance, i think more that i think senators, since the alaska national guard is active year round due to the proximity to russia, alot of this about palin is not true,, i thought she did well, i blame the macain team for running their mouth hunting a scape goat, and she aint it, macains ppl thought she was doing to much to push herself for a future run. but i dont see that..i wish obama would want to get off forgien oil and drill here as much as we can, he has his hands full thats for sure.. one thing is he will have to come off that capital gains tax, the market need buyers, and they will not if he is going to raise capital gains as he ran on....20 percent of the market trades , buys and sells, alot is just 401 who ride it , oh well its over, just see how it goes, rohm emanuel is a pit bull like i said before here, i think it was when he was in the clinton adminstration , he was ticked at someone and mailed them a dead fish, lol

i would not think he would offer it to her, but mostly i dont think she would take it, i think she has the better job, and i think her family loves alaska, my son in law has gone up there twice, he loves it, adn she and her hubby they were raised there, i dont see her in washington as just a cabinet appointment, she will win her next term as gov, by a mile, now here hubby can do somemore of those ironman snowmachine races, lol, u know he ran one the last 500 miles with a broke arm,, i think he is paid by " team artic" and since the world knows him now, i imagine he can bargain for a much better deal with them, he races a artic cat snowmobile, but they dont like them called that they want them called snowmachines, take care

Geez rosco you seem to know an awful lot about Sarah Palin, probably as much as I do about Avril Lavigne... lol!

I think Sarah would've made a good VP I really do, she has what it takes I think regardless of what people say, but I agree she has a life in Alaska, and might decide to stay there and not do anything else outside of Alaska. Shes in good standing their obviously.

Here we go again...and you think Biden is a shining star, the man is a babbling idiot as he proved in his speeches, they should have let him keep talking instead of hushing him up, he would have had the taxes down to Obama's favorite number $42,000.00. I am sitting back and watching this administration self destruct, by their own campaign lies and false promises they can't fulfill.

yes I love Biden, because he has lived many hardships
and so did McCain,something was different,like a war we shouldn't be in (Viet nam??,)

also most times puts his foot/mouth but human,,(Biden)

you know SSC the repubs are not swift,..I have no idea why Palin was picked, I don't think McCain picked her,but she was not his only downfall (My Friend) which sickened most people,no way was
America(people) his friend~~

ANCHORAGE, Alaska Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin called her critics cowards and jerks Friday for deriding her anonymously and insisted she never asked for the expensive wardrobe purchased for her use on the presidential campaign. www.news.yahoo.com

"I never asked for anything more than a Diet Dr. Pepper once in a while," Palin said as she returned to the governor's office from her two-month odyssey as the GOP vice presidential nominee. She said the Republican National Committee paid for the tens of thousands of dollars in designer clothes and accessories.

"Those are the RNC's clothes. They're not my clothes. I never forced anybody to buy anything," she said.

Republican Party lawyers are still trying to determine exactly what clothing was purchased for Palin at such high-end stores as Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus, what was returned and what has become of the rest.

She particularly lashed out at the anonymous Republican campaign sources cited in a Fox News report who said she did not know Africa was a continent, not a country, and could not name the three countries in the North American Free Trade Agreement Canada, the United States and Mexico.

"I consider it cowardly" that they did not allow their names to be used, she said.

Palin said those allegations aren't true. She recalled discussing Africa and NAFTA with aides who prepared her for the vice presidential debate with Democrat Joe Biden.

"If there are allegations based on questions or comments that I made in debate prep about NAFTA, and about the continent vs. the country when we talk about Africa there, then those were taken out of context," she said. "That's cruel, It's mean-spirited. It's immature. It's unprofessional and those guys are jerks if they came away with it, taking things out of context and then tried to spread something on national news. It's not fair, and it's not right."

Palin also said she would not call on Sen. Ted Stevens, R-Alaska, to resign, although last month, before his re-election bid, she said he should "step aside" and "play a very statesmanlike role in this now." Stevens, 84, was found guilty on seven counts of trying to hide more than $250,000 in free home renovations and other gifts that he received from a wealthy oil contractor.

Three days after the election, Stevens, the longest serving Republican in Senate history, is about 3,500 votes ahead of Democratic challenger Mark Begich with thousands of absentee ballots to be counted in the next two weeks.

Said Palin on Friday: "The Alaska voters have spoken and me not being a dictator, won't be telling anyone what to do."

When asked if she would call on him to resign, Palin said: "Not after the will of the people has been made manifest via that vote."

Meanwhile, RNC lawyers are discussing with Palin whether what's left of the clothing and accessories purchased for her on the campaign trail will go to charity, back to stores or be paid for by Palin, a McCain-Palin campaign official said Friday, speaking on condition of anonymity because the campaign hadn't authorized comment.

The sorting should be completed in the next four or five days, the campaign official said, declining to say whether the RNC was sending anyone to Alaska to help take inventory.

The RNC spent at least $150,000 on designer clothing, accessories and beauty services for Palin after she became John McCain's running mate in September. The spending included $75,062 at Neiman Marcus in Minneapolis; $49,425 at Saks Fifth Avenue; $9,447 at Macy's; and $789 at the luxury retailer Barneys New York. Some of the purchases were for Palin family members, such as $4,902 spent at upscale men's clothier Atelier and $92 at Pacifier, a Minneapolis baby boutique.

The McCain-Palin campaign said about a third of the clothing was returned immediately because it was the wrong size, or for other reasons. However, other purchases were apparently made after that, the campaign official said.

The spending drew a complaint against Palin and the RNC by a Washington government watchdog group. Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington filed a complaint with the Federal Election Commission accusing Palin and the GOP of violating a federal ban on the use of campaign funds for personal expenses such as clothing.

The RNC didn't respond to repeated requests by The Associated Press for comment Friday.

It's routine for candidates to get professional hair and makeup services at campaign expense before they go on camera, but Palin's shopping spree at GOP donors' expense is unusual. It contrasted with the down-to-earth "hockey mom" image that Palin sought to craft and gave the campaign unwanted publicity in the form of newspaper headlines, Internet chatter and comedians' jokes.

FEC spokesman Bob Biersack declined to comment on the spending beyond confirming that the commission has received CREW's complaint.

What ever Gypsy, for years I was told of your excessive drinking problems from people you confided in on IYT. Like I said the first words of a problem are the denial ones.
Palin is a dead issue thought this was established last night, but one more dig from you is to be expected.
You are right on to the next 4 years and a Buckwheat at the helm....lord help us all.
