Palin's sudden resignation draws Greer compliment

Palinresignap RPOF Chairman Jim Greer, who caught heat for his critical assessment of Sarah Palin's campaign skills alongside John McCain, still managed to toss her a compliment after today's announcement she was resigning as Alaska governor.

“On behalf of the Republican Party of Florida and Republicans across the state, I would like to thank Governor Palin for her service to our Party," Greer said in a statement. "She worked tirelessly to defend Republican principles throughout her service in state and local government and demonstrated tremendous courage as a historic candidate on the Republican presidential ticket in 2008. We respect her decision and wish Governor Palin and her family the very best as she moves forward.” (AP photo)

Is Palin leaving politics or making a bold play for 2012?
