CNN is reporting that Governor Sarah Palin, 44, first term governor, is John McCain’s running mate. This will make for a very interesting vice presidential debate. She has a record of change, but didn’t John McCain and company say that Barack Obama has very little experience? Well, what can we say about Ms. Palin? This is troubling on so many levels. She has been in office for two years. At least Barack Obama has been in politics for some time. This makes McCain seem petty and a flip-flopper. The McCain camp has literally tried to railroad Barack Obama on his experience. At 72, he chooses a 44-year old as his running mate. Well, I don’t want to be too bold, but my vote is on the Obama-Biden ticket. I don’t think this will affect women voters because they don’t know who this woman is. This helps him very little with disaffected women voters who supported Hillary Clinton.
Let me also add, that Mrs. Palin is under legislative investigation in her state. More to come on this pick! What will her role be? With such a thin resume, as well as being the mother of a four-month baby with Down’s Syndrome, who will need a lot of attention, this tells me she will be a passive VP, should they prevail in the Fall. The only thing I can say about her that I like is the fact that in the face of adversity, being told her baby had Down’s Syndrome, she chose to have her baby. That’s admirable because many people would choose to terminate the pregnancy, so my hats off to her.
What is her background? Nobody knows. At least we know where Joe Biden stands. He will clean the floor up with her during the debates. Not because she is a woman, but because she has NO EXPERIENCE.
