The New York Times leads with a story today about McCain's judgment in picking Sarah Palin as his running mate.

On Monday morning, Ms. Palin and her husband, Todd, issued a statement saying that their 17-year-old unmarried daughter, Bristol, was five months pregnant and that she intended to marry the father.
