Wow. Another fantastic choice. I can’t say I know too much about her true ideology. However from what I have heard, she seems a common-sense moderate. Those words are always comforting to me.
It was politically saavy. Not just because of the exploiting Obama’s weakness with the
Hillary voters. But because she comes with the fewest negatives. The other big potential choices for McCain (Romney, Pawlenty, Lieberman, Ridge) all had the potential to hurt his base a bit or activate the Dems a little more. Palin does not.
In other words, she won’t make conservatives uneasy about the ticket AND she won’t rile up Dems. With VP picks the rule of course is to “do no harm.”
Now that the tickets are locked in, I could not be happier with our options.
Obama/Biden vs. McCain/Palin is unbelievably superior to anything I could have hoped for.
