I am sure that many Republicans as well as Democrats
were surprised at John McCain's choice for VP.
I have a friend who e-mailed me and said
"What was he thinking?"
What he was obviously thinking was,
"If I have a Woman on the ticket, I could pick up disgruntled Hillary supporters"
What he doesn't seem to understand is, most of them are also interested in the issues.
What he probably will do with this choice is bring back the Christian right winger's who only vote for strong anti-abortion candidates.
What else did he do?
He insulted some very strong qualified Republican woman,
Olympia Snowe from Maine
Kay Bailey Hutchenson from Texas
and Elizabeth Dole from North Carolina just to name
After all the screaming about Obama's lack of experience, McCain picks a woman who has only served as Mayor of a Wasilla Alaska, a city of about 6700 people and was just elected Governor of Alaska in 2006, a state with population of about 683,478 as of 2007.
There are "Cities" with larger populations then that, for instance Austin, Tx
population is 743,074.
She hasn't even served 2 years as Governor and McCain
thinks she is experienced enough?
Give me a break!
The sad thing though, people elected George Dubya twice, so who knows what will happen.
