I found a different take on Sarah Palin's resignation, in Charlottesville's free weekly the Hook. The Brazen Careerist, Penelope Trunk, brazenly praises Palin for adapting to what's important in the 21st century.
Watching Sarah Palin resign from her governor post in Alaska inspires me to be more brave in my own career. She’s running her career in ways I intuitively think we should all be running our careers. And she’s reflecting my own experience back to me in a positive way: That breaking new ground is difficult but it pays off.
