In a surprising move, Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin has announced she will resign from her post July 26 -- with two years left in her term. Saying she didn't feel she could do her job effectively and that her family had to come first, Palin didn't rule out a run for U.S. president in 2012.
“We’ve got to put first things first. I love my job, and I love Alaska. I am doing what’s best for Alaska,” Palin said Friday at a press conference in her hometown of Wasilla.
