Holy smokes! I predicted Leiberman, but I’m glad I’m wrong.
She’s Sarah Palin, 44 years old, the governor of Alaska, a mom of 5…the oldest in the military and the youngest a baby with Down’s. I could go on, but I’m sure you’ll hear about her if you haven’t already. This is huge.
I’m thrilled. I love many of the things she stands for (anti-abortion, anti-big government) and I think it was a great move of McCain. Hillary has pretty much no chance of taking office anymore, so people that would vote for her just because she’s a woman may vote for McCain/Palin. Yeah, not a good reason to vote for someone, but as I say IRL, “People are sheep.”
No, she doesn’t have a lot of experience, but what does Obama have? IMO, Obama’s as popular as he is because he’s incredibly charismatic, young, and half-black. I think having a half-black president would be great for the country as far as racial divide goes, but that’s no reason to vote for someone. Just like the female issue. He doesn’t have experience like McCain does and his head is in the clouds. I don’t think he’d get as many things done as he thinks he could…he’s a little overly optimistic. Anyway, I digress…
She’s the first female runningmate for the presidency…and if they win, or Obama wins, this is hugely historical. Especially if McCain doesn’t make it full term, which a lot of people are worried about. She could actually be the first female VP and then President.
I’m very excited. I’m really looking forward to seeing her more and hearing more of what she stands for. And I can’t wait to go vote!
