Sarah Palin - Good Choice!
John McCain has eased my concerns a little by naming a strong conservative -- Alaska Governor Sarah Palin -- as his running mate. As the first woman in the GOP to be on a presidential ticket, McCain has made history as well as choosing someone who will help him among Christian conservatives.
I think it's kind of funny how the Obama camp responded to the choice of Palin. They are trying to make the case that because Sarah Palin is from a small town, she's not experienced enough to be a "heartbeat away from the presidency." Obama raising experience questions is laughable, as is his attitude toward a small town upbringing. Once again, the limousine liberal arrogant elitism rears its ugly head.
As a first term governor, Sarah Palin is one who has captured national attention for her success thus far. Interestingly enough, Alaska is just across the Bering Strait from Russia, a country causing concern in the West because of its resurgence. Alaska is also the vortex of the debate over energy i.e. drilling in Anwar -- something that is supported by the majority of Alaskans, I might add.
This is going to be very interesting to watch.
