Smooth move, McCain. I guess he's going for those Hillary votes. Plus, there's this..

At present, Palin chairs the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission, a multistate panel "that promotes the conservation and efficient recovery of domestic oil and natural gas resources while protecting health, safety and the environment," the biography says.

It's going to be an interesting election, indeed! So, you think Joe Biden is a hottie?? Whatever floats your boat...

She also faces possible impeachment for abuse of office. Seems the state legislature just voted to hire an independent investigator to see if she used her position to try to have a former brother-in-law - an Alaska state trooper - fired from his job, and then fired the guy who refused to fire the brother-in-law. Yup. More of the same.

Ugh. Sarah Palin?

It's almost like McCain doesn't even want to win. Sarah Palin brings almost nothing to the table. It's obvious that McCain wants to draw in Hillary voters by choosing a female VP, but Hillary voters admired Hillary's experience, and Sarah Palin has less experience than even Obama.

And no, our new VP is not a hottie, unless you are into older men.

Former Ms. Alaska. You don't get to be that unless you ARE a hottie... even in Alaska.

Smitty, that would be known as a "scoreboard"... unless you've got a couple of beauty paegents under your belt.

Yep..only in her first term as governor... Interesting going for a woman here but this very well could bite McCain in the ass.

If one could guarantee that a peer of mine will look like that when she's 44, I would marry her tomorrow. I'm just saying.

This is definitely going to be one of the most interesting elections to date.

This is the first woman in GOP history to be chosen as VP and all the talk is about her appearance. What is it with you people?

Indeed, I'd like to know what the logic behind this choice is. Right now all it seems to be is a grab for media attention (McCain has been whining all along that he's not getting nearly the media coverage Barak gets because he's African American), and everyone knows he's going after the dejected supporters of Hilary. Seems to me the only reason they picked her was so they could get some media attention and get some of Hilary's supporters.

I mean, she doesn't seem like the best choice: As Magical pointed out, under investigation for abuse of office. Not to mention she represents the Republican Party in Alaska, which right now is NOT exactly something to be proud of with two of it's major members on trial for crimes committed in office.

This could definitely be interesting....

**ding ding**

Alas, you hit it on the head. Exactly why I started this thread. Why would McCain choose someone with very minimal experience, after accusing ObaMa of the very same? What is it that makes her the perfect Yang to his Yang?

Is it that he's the oldest candidate ever and she's the youngest VP candidate ever?

Nope.

it helps shore up the conservative wing of the party--

that part is very uneasy with McCain--

it also is an attempt for sure to grab some of the Hiliary supporters still unhappy about obama/biden ticket

its going to get interesting for sure

See, there we go!

If McCain gets elected, thank god we have a former Sports Broadcaster a "heartbeat away" from the presidency. You know, with people with that kind of experience selected for such a vital position as presumptive VP, it just gives me a strong sense of faith in the GOP.

Good one McCain! I was losing faith in you, but you haven't let me down.

X-D

Seriously...

If McCain's potential for success in this election is based on any one issue, it is this: Is McCain a full-fledged neo-con, or are his Republican roots in pragmatism?

The former would be a one-way ticket to Obamaville, whereas the latter may retain (or regain, rather) his popularity amongst independents (and even Democrats).

McCain's running mate pick will surely help establish himself in the latter, although his stance on foreign policy is nigh-retarded, reverting him back to the former. Most obviously, she's a woman. This dispels any misconceptions that the GOP is a "backwards" party (or if it is, that he has nothing to do with it) that discriminates based on gender. Additionally, she has shown to be somewhat pragmatic, vetoing a bill that would have denied state benefits to same-sex couples.

Then again, she's 44 and McCain's almost dead. If I could be sure that McCain were a pragmatist Republican, I'd vote for him in a heartbeat (haha). However, the ambiguity concerning this issue is just too...ambiguous for me. Oh well, Obama '08.

What else is there to debate with top level politicians? They should all be pitched overboard.
