Stress Relief for Post-Campaign Sarah Palin

By Dr Jeff Bailey

In a local Alaskan paper today the heading is Back at work, Palin vents a bit over campaign criticism. In the post-campaign analyses, there is little doubt that Sarah Palin will command attention for some time. This will add to her personal stress.

If you look at the research on stress levels of politicians, you will have to read Cary Cooper’s research. He says that within six months there are significantly elevated stress levels for politicians. Before Sarah failed in her vice president race I was predicting her levels of stress.

Stress symptoms included loss of confidence, sleeping problems, drinking and eating too much, feeling constantly under strain and showing increasing lack of motivation.

As we all know, Barack Obama and Joe Biden are president elect and VP elect. So Sarah doesn’t have to cope with national level stress. However she does have to deal with her gubernatorial pressures returning as governor of Alaska. It must be a difficult task to adapt to the small state issues after such a heady campaign.

There is no doubt that Sarah is an outstanding campaigner. As governor, she promoted the notion that she is bipartisan. Her recent campaign activities could not support such a contention and trying to build fences could be stressful for her.

The democratic opposition and government in Alaska bound to have many questions about unresolved issues. Today’s paper highlights different opinions of Sarah’s role in Troopergate. Reporters also asked how she could rebuild bipartisan relationships after her vice presidential attacks on the Democrats.

The biggest stress is likely to be post-campaign dumping. Already we see ‘unnamed McCain staffers’ leveling claims at here. They said that she did not know Africa was a continent. They criticized her Republican party funded shopping spree. She reduced staffers to tears with her attitude and demands. We will never know if these are true or not and, of course, Sarah should not give dignity to these criticisms whether they are founded or baseless.

Because so many people were interested in Sarah as president in 2012, she will be the target for some significant interest, criticism, and even scapegoating. Her family support, a strong sense of purpose, her values and even her ambition will provide stress buffers for the days ahead. It is certain that she has the personal strength and resources to manage and relieve any future stress.
