GOP veep pick

most of the possible republican VP picks do not concern me. i think romney would get slapped around in the debates by biden, as would pawlenty (who supposedly is out of the running). romney would also reinforce the elitist image for mccain that has gained traction since his timeless $5 million and number of houses comment.

the GOP being considered for VP that scares me? alaska governor sarah palin. this hot librarian type is worrying. i feel like the clinton backer voting for mccain issue is largely a media creation. but a female republican VP nominee could really capitalize.

No biggie. This is going to be seen as obvious pandering and she's gonna get destroyed in the VP debate.

huevos, maybe you should buy a lottery ticket.

you gotta give mccain some credit for the palin pick. politicians who make even a moderately unconventional choice are few and far between, but i still don't think it won't make much of a difference. those hillary supporters aren't going to switch over, and i think most people get that mccain may have made the best "choice," but biden will make the best vp.
