I think Sarah Palin is an awful choice

The first thing you are looking for in a vice president is: Is she ready to be commander in chief from day one if the 72-yr old GOP nominee is incapacitated or croaks?

Well, is she? She was mayor of a small town in Alaska for 6 years, and just became governor of Alaska last year. Alaska while big geographically, has only 680,000 in population.

An unknown pol from a small state? are you kidding me? the palin pick ironically makes the obama-biden choice the safer one in November.

UPDATE: McCain only met Palin once before the VP offer. Hah, like a blind date. It is becoming more and more like a crude attempt to attract Hillary women voters to the ticket.

Of course, McCain's move is entirely tactical, bait the Clinton women voters. Nothing subtle reasoning there.

But you're right: 69 million dollar question is is she qualified to step in as commander in chief if 72 year old McCain hits the dust!

Well, as Obama told the Republicans in his acceptance speech,
in his speech,

"You make a big election about small things."

It's obviously an attempt to court Hillary's voters but except for a vagina, what does she have in common with Hillary?

The choice is cynical. It shows McCain believes voters are stupid.
