McCain/Palin...Who would of thought? After I got up off the floor, brushed myself off, and caught my breath, I started to think about it.
A young, inexperienced, Governor of Alaska? Really? My biggest concern is that McCain did not choose somebody who would help solidify any of the battleground states. That hurts. My second biggest concern is that Palin is adamantly Pro-Life, so will she really be able to pull in Hillary's Army? I'm not so sure.
After I got past those two points, I started to get excited. A lifetime NRA member with a husband who actually works for a living? A hunter, fisher, and winner of several marathons and snowmobile races? A former runner-up to Miss Alaska? And a governor who actually has executive experience? She blows Obama out of the water, and Obama wants to play the experience game?
Obama, with a somewhat diluted message of change, picks a Washington insider for VP, and shuns Hillary.
McCain, a maverick with values, positions, and answers picks a woman who could not be further from Washington.
Obama's over-hyped speech and convention are yesterdays news, and for that, McCain gets Highest Honors.
I happen to think it's a pretty good choice. She balances McCain and totally blows the two tax and spend liberals out of the water when it comes to all matters with the exception of foriegn policy but McCain has that covered. She has the experience of having to balance a budget and run a state whereas O/B have done nothing but spend our money.
That being said, I hope McCain didn't pick her to get the Hillary votes because I don't think that will happen. She seems like she can hold her own. Besides, all the Hillary ladies are going to be jealous of her looks!
