Default Re: The Place for Love (Dan Drezner & Megan McArdle)

Without disagreeing with much of what was said about Palin, Megan's take on her resignation from the Alaska governorship (http://bloggingheads.tv/diavlogs/319...1:40&out=22:23) was out of date over a year ago, when Palin contributed significantly to the health care debate via her Facebook page (!). Her role in the 2008 campaign transformed her from a governor who could reach across the aisle into a divisive figure whom Alaska Democrats would oppose at every turn, at considerable cost to the governance of the state and her household's finances and peace of mind. Resigning the office allowed her to assume a role in the national debate that wouldn't have been possible from Juneau, as noted in a prescient day-after post (http://www.weeklystandard.com/weblog...ian_take_1.asp).
