McCain did the only thing he could have done to reset the race. Palin gives teeth to being pro-life, having a Down Syndrome child. Her eldest of five enlisted in the Army last year. And Gov. Palin is a hunter.
Like it or not, John McCain, this is your case: Obama, you said the race is about presidential temperament. Well, eat this, Barack. You want to see my presidential temperament in action? Sarah f*in' Palin, man. That's the ticket!
Palin is a first term governor who reportedly has only served two terms on a city council, and one as mayor before that. McCain: "I'll see you one two term senator and raise you with one first term governor."
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.
A 72-year-old man with a history of health problems has to consider the possibility that his vice president might actually have to govern. He's not thinking about you or me. John McCain is thinking about John McCain.
