Pretty strategic on his part if it happens. That should get him some of the women's vote but after seeing the Obama speach last night I think he is going to need more than a prettyVP to win. The debates should prove interesting.

I've been praying for 6 months that he would pick her!

It would clinch the election.

So, you think the people of the United States of America are ready to accept changing the the name of the country to the Socialist States of America?

I heard on the radio this morning that, in a poll of major college students, 27% thought that "From each according to his ability, to each according to his need" was in the Consitution. No wonder the Socialists are taking over... Our schools are turning out Morons.

hmm....if he were to choose a lady with only 2 terms (i think, or is it 2 years? can't remember) of experience, kind of undermines the "Obama doesn't have any experience don't vote for him" argument eh?

Wow! That would really be a pick out of left field if he chooses Palin since the speculation was on Pawlenty, Romney or Lieberman. I think it would be a great choice. The debates would be real interesting on the abortion issue especially. How can Biden argue with a woman who chose to have a child born with down syndrome?

Just heard on the local talk radio that they have confirmed some sort of private jet flight from Alaska to Middletown, Ohio last night. So, folks are thinking that it could be her and she is gonna be at the event here in Dayton today.

She was runner-up for Miss Alaska.

Actually, wahoohunter, she has only been governor a little over a year. But Obama has only been Senator for 3 years, and unlike Mrs. Palin, Obama has no executive experience.

Looking like it's just a matter of time: http://www.cnbc.com/id/26454655

This will either make McCain's election inevitable or tank his campaign. Depends on whether folks see it as a legitimate move or as a publicity stunt, a knee-jerk reaction. But I think it's a great move on McCain's part. I've said for months I hope that he picks her. She has a 95% approval rating and strong conservative credentials. She is the woman who can get the Clinton supporters who are still fuming because there isn't a woman on the ticket. She brings a lot of potential and is really the only VP candidate who doesn't bring a lot of baggage to the ticket (except for the minor scandal she's been linked to recently, which I don't think is anything to be concerned about). If the conservatives need a reason to get behind the McCain ticket, this should do it. She has very strong social conservative leanings (she has a Downs Syndrome child that she refused to abort and is a strong anti-abortion advocate).

Also, let's not forget that several polls from key states show McCain leading among men but trailing badly among women. This is going to help his campaign. Certainly much more than Biden will help Obama's campaign.
