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.
