Good. I hope she takes it. I was thinking that she needs to be a multimillionaire with some bankroll to be "fully armed" to be a voice for those of us she represents politically... still.

It takes money to travel and to do many things and to have a personal staff... rather than an Alaska staff for the Governor issues.

She needs a press person and an administrative person I would think to manage her ongoing political voice... because she still represents me though she was not elected. She's a person who is a populist leader now... not a populist candidate.

I'm very happy for her and wish her much prosperity and success in future book endeavors.

Grace.
