What's next for Palin?

Just shy of a year ago, Alaska Governor Sarah Palin burst onto the national scene when Senator John McCain picked her as his Vice Presidential running mate.  It would be an understatement to say that life for Palin and her family has been controversial since the announcement.  Wardrobe payments, new babies, interview flubs, feuds with late night talk show hosts, ethics complaints…

Palin says she thought she would stop being a “lightning rod” when she returned to Alaska.  But at a news conference earlier this month she announced her resignation as governor and it becomes effective Sunday afternoon. The question now is:  Will she drop off the radar as quickly as she appeared? Or is she set for a place on the national stage?

Palin has not given many details about her future plans or motivations for stepping down, except for saying she resigned because of the “tremendous pressure, time and financial burden of a litany of ethics complaints in the past several months.” 

What do you think Sarah Palin should do next?
