Vice President Sarah Palin

Fox News has confirmed that John McCain will choose Alaska Governor Sarah Palin for Vice President. I was afraid McCain was going to drop the ball on his VP pick. Well done, John!

Wow! What an outstanding pick for VP. From what I've heard so far she's a strong reformer, has strong conservative values (she hunts?!), and seems to be an exceptional American woman making a difference. Excellent choice by McCain, and an impressive political feat to pull of such a surprise.

Before we get to full of excitement, I seem to recall an earlier post to this Blog in which the person, I believe speaking as a resident of Alaska, commented on how VERY LIBERAL this governor is. I also recall an earlier presidential election in which a woman was chosen as the VP candidate (Dukakis/Ferraro). Alas, in that case for the Democrats, the choice did not really help the campaigne. In fact, if I am correct, I recall the GOP questioning some of Ms. Ferraro's spouse's financial dealings. Let us hope, this time around, things will be different.

Things are definitely different. We have the first Black man nominated as a Presidential candidate and we almost HAD the first woman nominated. Now that there are so many women frustrated that they were "almost there", they probably will give McCain a second glance with choosing a woman for his VP.

Plus, I wouldn't doubt that she has liberal tendencies if what you say is true. So does McCain! But lets be honest and realistic here, McCain probably has the best shot to reel in independents and Democratic voters. And with how divided this country is, that could be a helpful advantage in the coming election.

I'm just happy he didn't commit political suicide with someone like Lieberman.

This is going to be fun. History will be made, one way or another, and it looks more likely now that it will be the right history.

Even more Hillary supporters will go for McCain now. Obama is no longer a near certainty. Heaven forbid something happens to McCain, but I believe Palin would rise to the occasion. She has the right attitude. Everyone knows Obama is NOT ready for POTUS, Palin is only for the VP. Look at Dan Quayle.
