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.
McCain picks Alaska gov as running mate.
