Looking like July 4 for Alaska is really time to celebrate 'independence', for more than the intended purpose!!!

Ya know, I kinda hope she does try to run for president, it'd be such a laugh! And she'd have no chance of winning!

This is the best C-D thread ever and should be a sticky.

Thank you, Met. It is with great humility that I accept the honour you have bestowed upon me. I shall continue to strive to uphold the high standards of the Alaska forum and spread the happiness around.

She's a million steps up from this GOON we got for president now. You don't need to be a rocket scientist to see that, I hope!

The majority of the American people don't share your p**s-poor opinion of our president, while the majority of Americans find the Republicans an absurdity, dangerous reactionaries, or both.

Forget about your hate or approval of her for a moment b'c I don't care about that, and answer this. Wouldn't resigning now hurt her in the long run as far as a 2012 candidate? I might wonder if she could finish a term as president. Couldn't she have at least finished her term--one more year?

Wally Hickel on the Exxon deal: "Palin is putting her national ambitions first"

From Sean Cockerham in Anchorage --

Most of the reaction to the deal has been cautiously optimistic or better.

But former Gov. Wally Hickel just put out a blistering statement on the announcement that Exxon Mobil joined with TransCanada to work on a natural gas pipeline to the Lower 48.

First some context: The Republican Hickel was co-chair of Gov. Sarah Palin's 2006 campaign for governor. But they had a hard split when Palin dropped her active promotion of the proposed "all-Alaska" natural gas pipeline route from the North Slope to Valdez, an idea Hickel is passionate about.

Below is Hickel's statement:

When Governor Sarah Palin was elected in 2006, we believed she would put Alaska first. But once elected, she put Sarah first.

Because of her national ambitions, she is promoting an agenda that will allow Outside corporations to dominate Alaska’s resources, including our energy and the jobs it provides.

Over my objection, the Governor negotiated a contract last year with TransCanada under AGIA, supported by the legislature, that will now provide ExxonMobil Corporation with half of $500 million of state funds.

I have urged the Governor many times to lead our state in another direction. We should build and own a natural gas pipeline from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez and ship Liquefied Natural Gas (LNG) to world markets.

She has taken another road.

Unless the people of Alaska rise up and oppose the TransCanada -ExxonMobil deal, we will revert to the situation in territorial days when Outside interests controlled our lives.

Probably. I doubt she'll try to run in '12.
