FAIRBANKS, Alaska (AP) - Sarah Palin formally steps down as Alaska's governor today, with few clues about her political future.

She has said she plans to write a book, campaign for political candidates who share her outlook and build a right-of-center coalition. And she'll continue to speak her mind on the social networking site Twitter.

In a message posted yesterday, she describes her farewell picnic in Anchorage as "awesome." She planned to head to Fairbanks in a camper "full of kids & coffee," where she'll be giving a farewell speech at another picnic.

That's also where she'll officially hand over power to Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell. He's promising to push many of Palin's initiatives, including the building of a natural gas pipeline.

Friends and foes have been speculating that Palin may host a radio or TV show, or launch a speaking career.

Her political action committee has already raised more than $1 million. A spokeswoman for SarahPAC is disputing suggestions that Palin is already running for president or has media deals lined up.
