WASHINGTON (AP) - Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin says she is not only
staying in politics once she leaves the governor's office later this month, she's jumping right back into the national fray.
Palin tells the Washington Times for a Sunday story that she is eager to campaign for Republicans and independents and even Democrats who share her views on limited government, national defense and energy independence.
Palin says that Americans are so tired of partisan politics that not even her 20-year-old son is a Republican. Like his father, he is registered as "nonpartisan" in Alaska.
Palin announced last week that she will leave the governor's office a year and a half before her first term is to end. She tells the Washington Times that she and her family had been thinking about her stepping down for months.
