Leaves the governorship in two weeks.
My hunch is that if we hear about Sarah Palin in terms of national office again, it will most likely be in 2016, rather than 2012.
Adopting the Nixon '62 line, we won't have Sarah Palin to kick around for about seven years. By then, she'll be 52 or so -- still in a political prime. The McCain campaign will be a distant memory. Her young son will be in elementary school and she'll have been able to better balance the national media spotlight and the many tugs on her time.
Short term though, you don't quit in the middle of your first and only term as governor, if you're hoping of running for president in three years.
