Wow!!!! I must say I am really surprised. This pick is really telling of Sen. McCain. Here he has been campaigning against Sen. Obama on the fact that he lacks experience, but then he goes and chooses a 1st time governor from Alaska who has only been in office for two years. I really want to know how that Texas delegate that was crying on CNN about Hillary Clinton feels about this. Since experience is such a big thing to these people I would think they would feel insulted by this pick. Do he really think that women are so shallow that we would settle for just any woman being on the ticket? Maybe he does.
Gov. Palin is 44 years old so I guess John McCain was taking this into account also since today is his 72nd birthday. Oh, and did I forget to mention that Gov. Palin is also under investigation in Alaska:
But Palin’s seemingly bright future was clouded in late July when the state legislature voted to hire an independent investigator to find out whether she tried to have a state official fire her ex-brother-in-law from his job as a state trooper.
The allegation was made by former Department of Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan, whom Palin fired in mid-July. (Source)
I am really shocked he made his pick, but I'm pretty sure the Obama people are happy he took the experience thing off the table because you can't argue about experience when the person you've selected as your running mate has absolutely none.
I want to see how the PUMA people react to this especially since Gov. Palin is Pro-Life.
