All right, All right... things just got way, way scarier. What do I do now? The thought of Gidget being a heart beat (and at 72 McCain is running out of them) away from the most powerful position in the world may be more scary than Obama in the presidency. At least I know he is a great politician if not a great public servant. I know absolutely nothing about her and not much time to form a true opinion. This was a horrible move for McCain. Meg Whitman would have been better. Throw me back into the pool of undecideds. Maybe we should change it to where there is an independent election for vice president I'd much rather have Biden in that position and McCain in the presidency. Is it too late to change the rules?


Darren, if you truly are undecided now, what remains your biggest concern about the Obama/Biden ticket?


As I've stated before, I don't trust Obama to lead our country in this age of terrorism. I feel he will be soft on national security. I also don't like his pro-choice stance but that is way secondary.

I can't get through to Palin's website i suspect because it is receiving about a billion hits at this time as everyone tries to find out more about her.

I'm not going to argue with you -- you need to make up your own mind on your own terms, but I will say that I think a strong leader surrounds themselves with strong team members. Given the most important choice that each candidate has made so far, does that sway your feelings about Obama's leadership qualities?

Have you seen the demand for MILF's on the internet, that's apparently a huge demographic.


Exactly.

I know someone said it's a cop out earlier but I gotta say that I don't trust either of these candidates to lead our country in this age of....well, anything.

We sure are a stupid bunch.

I do find it interesting that Obama picked an old, white, crusty, career senator, much like McCain and McCain picked a young, attractive new comer, much like Obama.

We don't actually know Palin's qualifications (fewer people likely do than when Obama started his run), and passing judgement solely upon appearance and youth is exactly the same mindless speculation often directed at Obama. With this choice McCain automatically gets more votes from women, youth... and likely Bill Clinton. However, it comes at the expense of his "experience" platform, and abandoning the familiar in favor of an attractive young woman AGAIN is rich fodder for critics. Expect to hear something about the potential makeup of McCain's cabinet from the late night comics within, say, 12 hours. :-/

Just stop it ...
Anybody can look at this and see it for what it is ... I am not a supporter of McCain V Obama (McCain VS Clinton would have been a different story) BUT Romney would have been a powerfull choice but would not have pandered to the PUMAs

If McCain had picked JC Watts or Micheal Steele (I disagree with this guy but he went to my Highschool and I know where he got his values from) He would have played to strenth... If he had picked Kay-Bailey it would have been the selection of a (another) strong Senator... there is no justification for this pick except pandering

Obama talked about good judgment last night. Republicans want you to forget about last night ... but this pretty much confirms what Obama said.

5 minutes of google searching on her and I'm convinced she is at least as experienced as Obama, but both are very low on that scale. I'm sure we'll learn a lot more about her in the next few hours as people go talk to her kindergarten teacher and what not.

And for the record, I was not passing judgement solely upon appearance and I'm not going to assume that's why McCain picked her. I simply pointed out that each candidate picked a VP with a lot in common with their opponent. Interesting strategy.

I'm sure being female and being attractive were in the plus column while picking her over the other options, but I hope they were small pluses. Being a certain race/sex or attractive/unattractive should not in any way be a reason for someone to be President or VP.

Sorry if my attempt at humor was taken wrong. I just wanted to point out that people would complain no matter who he picked and both picked a pretty good clone of the other (based on a few superficial qualities).

I Hope that appearance was not the driver for this selection ... but it looks so much like it ..

We will see what happens

In my opinion, his choice for VP was a very smart move. It effectively squashes all the "more of the same" rhetoric that the Obama camp has been shouting. She's not a Washington insider, she's not big government. What she lacks in experience, I think she makes up for in tenacity and what seems to be the ability to think on her feet. I honestly don't see why women voters should be insulted! What is insulting, though, are comments that she was chosen based solely on her looks. Intelligent women can't be beautiful???

My wife is intelligent and beautiful. She's also Pro-choice, wants salary equality, and universal health care.

So if there are Hillary people that can ignore all the core Hillary issues then they just might vote for McCain/Palin. But that would be just a stupid as voting for her because she's pretty.

You're right about her not being a Washington insider, she's barely an Alaskan insider.

I don't think McCain picked her because she's attractive, although that never hurts with some folks. But in the last hour or so I tuned in to the Rush Limbaugh show (a right-wing extremist fanatic with a popular radio show, for anyone outside the U.S. who is not familiar with him) who was mighty enthusiastic about Palin; and then also heard an interview with Ann Coulter, also very enthusiastic and full of praise for McCain's pick.

Call me superficial, but that's really all I need to know about Sarah Palin.
