McCain Picks a Woman as His VP!

August 29, 2008 Leave a comment

In what I consider a brilliant move, Senator John McCain has pegged Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin to be his Veep running mate.  Wow, is this a gesture to the disenfranchised Hillary supporters?

Sarah is quite a bit younger than McCain, also hopefully bringing in a different demographic of voters into the polling booths.  How will the polls react to this?  Not sure.  I see a few issues that may come up.

1)  Alaska.  She’s been involved with Big Oil.  Issue?  Perhaps

2)  She’s a very young Governor.  Inexperienced?  Well, no less than Obama.

3)  She’s relatively unknown.  I didn’t know her…did you?

I think it’s a good ticket.  A woman VP?  Cool…
