Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin said she plans to return to the national political stage — stumping for conservative issues and even Democrats — giving a brief glimpse into her plans just a week after abruptly announcing her departure from the governor’s post.
“I will go around the country on behalf of candidates who believe in the right things, regardless of their party label or affiliation,” she said
“People are so tired of the partisan stuff — even my own son is not a Republican,” said the 45-year-old Palin, who stunned the political world earlier this month with her decision to step down as governor July 26 with 18 months remaining in her term.
She has made no secret of the fact that both her son, Track, 20, an enlisted soldier serving in Iraq, and her husband, Todd, are registered as “nonpartisan” in Alaska.
Palin confirmed signing a book contract — rumored to be $6 million or more. She declined to discuss other employment prospects, including becoming a television commentator, according to a fascinating three page report in the Washington Times.
