I have to at least try to defend the point she was (so badly) trying to make. Alaska was on the front lines of the Cold War. It's a valid point, especially with a newly-resurgent and newly-belligerent Russia.

McCain or Obama will be only the third president in history to go directly from the Senate to the White House. To me, women governors are more likely to possess the skills senators have to acquire.

How ironic that the poster boy for gas guzzling sizeable SUVs morphed into a psuedo-democratic, Green governor just in time to see gas near 5 dollars a gallon and its effects rippling through the economy.
