Palin: “I Am Not A Quitter”
“I am not a quitter. I am a fighter,” declared Sarah Palin during a round of interviews about her quitting.
She resigned because of the tremendous pressure, time and financial burden of a litany of ethics complaints in the past several months, she said. The complaints were without merit and took away from the job she wanted to do for Alaskans, Palin said.
At a forum sponsored by Newsweek in August 2008, remarking on Hillary Clinton’s complaints about unfair media coverage, Palin had this to say:
You gotta to plow through that. You have to know what you’re getting into — which, I say this with all due respect to Hillary Clinton, and to her experience and to her passion for changing the status quo also — but when I hear a statement like that coming from a woman candidate with any kind of perceived whine about that excess criticism or you know maybe a sharper microscope put on her, I think, ‘man that doesn’t do us any good’ — women in politics, women in general wanting to progress this country.
