Wow! McCain picked Sarah Palin, the first term Alaska Governor. I am actually not really sure what I think about this. I had discounted her early on because she was a young, relatively inexperienced Governor of Alaska (a relatively small state population wise). Did we pick a women just to offset what the D’s are doing?
Things that are interesting about her is she is young, very well liked, makes the conservatives happy. She is the mother of 5 kids and one is special needs. They can’t really play the inexperience card on her since they are running Obama. It would be nice to have the first woman VP. But I am worried, she is sooooo unknown! When people in my political circle are saying, “who is Palin?”
I am a little concerned that there is some sort of state investigation surrounding her or her husband. I can only assume they fully vetted this issue before they put her on the top ticket. What is even crazier…she isn’t that much older than I am. Perhaps I should have lobbied for the VP position.
However, as I said earlier, I wanted McCain to do something out of the box. I was thinking Bobby Jindal….but Sarah Palin is out of the box.
Lets see what happens. Go McCain-Palin.
I will provide a better update when I have time to think about this more…this was just off the cuff, my ramblings.
