for the long haul

Though I don’t understand English at a deep cultural level, to me it is learningful when Mike Arrington of Tech Crunch sensed it during the podshow at Gillmor Gang that Amanda might be leaving Rocketboom. According to Mike, whenever someone says about something that ends with “in for the long haul,” she or he might be leaving. After all he was right. That podshow is worth listening if you are interested in the future of advertising/media, to which I don’t make a link as Steve Gillmor might not like it. (please google : gillmor gang amanda ).
