Props to Schmidt/Rove, convincing the youth and charisma-challenged McCain to go with Sarah Palin on a (literal) Hail Mary pass ... and knocking the Obama Invesco extravaganza right out of the news cycle in one tabloid-like swoop.
As a former Hillary supporter, my first thought when I saw Joe Biden up there with Obama was, "Darn... There's no more girls up there." I love seeing a woman in the fray. But this is indeed an unusual pick.
