Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has announced she will resign this month.
She made the surprise announcement on Friday after first revealing that she wouldn't be running for re-election. Rather than be a lame duck Governor Palin said she is choosing to resign and in explaining her decision, Palin made a basketball analogy, saying like a point guard, she knows when to pass the ball so the team can win.
The former Republican Vice Presidential candidate has now spurred talk she might focus on a run for President in the 2012 election. Lt. Governor Sean Parnell will be sworn in as Alaska's new Governor on July 26th.
