Palin's emails show that she was far from being a Republican Partisan while governor

The LA Times has this:

Even as her name was floated as a potential national political figure, Palin maintained a combative stance against her own party. In early August 2008 — just weeks before she joined the GOP ticket — the governor cautioned her staff that "we need to remember the GOP, for the most part ... has not had any support or assistance provided our administration so our time and efforts will continue to be spent on serving Alaskans, not party politics." . . .

The emails also reveal her tense relations with members of her home-state congressional delegation. Her suggestion that Alaska's then-Sen. Ted Stevens needed to explain his role in a corruption scandal upset other Republican leaders, including Rep. Don Young. . . .

CNN described Palin as a hard working governor, who wanted the press to go after her and not her staff.
