In December 2008, over the Christmas Holiday, Hillary Clinton turns down President-elect Barack Obama's offer for Secretary of State, citing her commitment to her New York Constituents. However, the real reason is because she had begun a secret-lesbian relationship with Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. They keep it a secret at 1st, but in July 2009, it is discovered by the media. On July 26th, 2009, Palin resigns as Governor of Alaska, and announces that she will be divorcing her husband, Todd Palin.
