Sarah, Sarah: What was that song? Anyway you're gone, and we're left here alone wondering what might have been, our best governor ever?
Or maybe you would have become that small-town, family and friends (before state and resident) influence monger we've become accustomed to.
So what, you were ours. But you couldn't wait or didn't care. Did queendom call? Even though you said "thanks, but no thanks" to the bridge to nowhere, you couldn't say "thanks but no thanks" to McCain?
You epitomized the Alaska family. But would Mackey or Swenson or Butcher leave what Alaska gives them for what you seek? You were such a rookie as a governor and yet you aspire to be the VP of the U.S.?
You've sealed your fate. Disgraced governor or dumb as a rock VP, it's up to the voters now.
Just as an aside, there is a reason to wait to name monuments for deceased persons; Ted Stevens International is an example.
