This week, the people who many Republicans wanted to run, finally declared they would not run and those who are still in the race are not making extraordinary gains.

In a statement to supporters, Palin, who was the 2008 vice presidential nominee said she would not seek the Republican nomination for the Presidency by entering what is already a crowded field. Instead, she vows to be more effective helping GOP win office from the nation's governors to congressional seats as well as the top job.

Palin's statement from Wasilla, Alaska, was a shorter retreat than New Jersey Governor Chis Christie also bowed-out on, which came at a lengthy news conference in Trenton. The New Jersey Governor also announced that he would not enter the 2012 presidential race, saying he had returned to his original feeling about staying out despite reconsidering in recent days.

One of the main differences between these two politicians iis is that Chris Christie says that he remains committed to his job as Governor of New Jersey. Sarah Palin, on the other hand had previously quit her job as Alaska Governor.
