McCain Picks Sarah Palin as Running Mate.

capt.1b8e7bf6280b4fde904b3ef87c9ff9c4.cvn_mccain_veepstakes__ny108.jpgx180y286q85sigcLmaWN50P0gOdfmnxJVFWg--

And all I can think of is why? Don't get me wrong, she has some impressive credentials and she is more conservative than McCain and she is more man than both democratic candidates combined. But she has been Governor of Alaska for less than two years. Why spend an entire campaign blasting Obama for his inexperience and then select someone with less experience as your choice for veep? Of course I am not taking into account her stint as Mayor of Wasilla.

Sarah was not my first choice, in fact she was not on my short list. I can not help but wonder if McCain was thinking of trying to lure disgruntled Hilary Clinton supporters to his ranks this November.

Still I think she will do well as VP. McCain's choice seems to have the Democrats at a loss for words. It will be interesting to see how the McCain/Palin duo reacts to the Gustov situation in New Orleans as oppossed to the Obama/Biden team.

It may have been genius, on his part. She wasn't on anyone's list, that I know of! But, I like her, and she seems quite capable, maybe the most out of all four of our Prez and Veep choices. I think, perhaps, you hit the nail on the head with trying to lure former Hillary supporters.

It isn't that I don't like her, or think she can do a great job as VP, or that she wasn't a brilliant strategy to win the election. But she is a mom with a 4 month old child who needs her around. VP doesn't have the time for a baby or toddlers. Yes, a mom can work and have little ones. But being the VP is more than work, it is constant work. Maybe she can change that and bring limits to the politics and not play the games. Who knows?
However, I feel for her babies. Not that she isn't a loving mom, but I feel that kids need their mommas with them.
It is a hard decision to support her, but I will.
