Not Her Best Moment

Sarah Palin's announcement, like much of her career, is a study in either fate, poor planning or impulsive exuberance and action. Her announcement required work to decipher, offered too many opportunities for interpretation, and was done at a moment of more limited press attention.

It was hard to tell if her announcement was offensive or defensive. Leadership is about clear vision, accountable execution, and building a team for the future. It's hard to see how her resignation meets those goals.
