Levi Johnston held a press conference with Associated Press to discuss his take and point-of-view on why Sarah Palin is giving up her post as the governor of Alaska. Today's Ann Curry interviews Levi Johnston to get his rare-view glimpse into Sarah Palin's resignation. You can watch the 8 minutes clip and read excerpts below -
On Palin's decision to resign: [Sarah Palin] was talkin' about how [being governor] is a very stressful job. After the campaign and things, we had tons of offers, from everybody out there; just all kinds of ridiculous things. There had been talk about, 'It'd be nice to just take the money and run.'
On ex-Alaska Governor Palin's supposedly $7 million Harper's Collins book deal: I've heard anything from $7 million to $9 million. It's up there.
On Palin's transformation since loosing the vice-presidency election: [She wasn't] as outgoing. I didn't see the spark in her eyes about being governor… The fame got to her head. Just being up there and running for vice president, it's totally different than governor. There's cameras every day, she had secrets service… You name it. Seeing how she acted when it was all gone, I think it definitely got to her head.
