Apparently its now Mccain Palin 08
Well Mccain has finally chosen his running mate! First-Term Gov. of Alaska Sarah Palin! She is 44 years old (3 years younger than Obama and 28 years younger than Mccain) and a mother of 5. She is very Pro-Life, and also in line with Mccain when it comes to offshore drilling and such. But all of this now raises the question again, why the hypocrisy? When an entire campaign was focused on experience and maturity, why would you choose a running mate with neither? This is obviously without a shadow of a doubt an attempt to lure disgruntled Hilary supporters into voting red. Its a nice image, I like the fact that Mccain is at least seeming to branch out. But this will only work on people who only vote with their eyes. I guess VP's really don't have much of a purpose? because what is a 72 year old Senator going to ask a 44 year old first- term Governor? Honestly? Reality is though this will be a power play in retrospective. Even though its teeming with hypocrisy... Best of luck for them and I must say, I didn't call this one!
