Sarah Palin's Husband Admits on Video That His Wife Quit Being Governor So She Could Make More Money

The Rachel Maddow Show staff dug up a video yesterday that shows an interesting moment of candor by Sarah Palin's husband Todd. In the video, Palin is arguing with a woman who says she's an Alaska resident and disapproves of how his wife quit the Alaska governorship and "sold out." Palin doesn't disagree with the Alaska woman; he just says, "What would you do" with "thousands and thousands of dollars a day?" The Palins had "all this debt," he says. Well in thatcase...

As Maddow points out, this clip is actually "key to understanding why a lot of the people who are running for president right now are in fact running for president." Public service!
