Whoa. A woman? And a woman whose power structure is in ALASKA?!?
I have to admit -- McCain's stand on several areas has appealed to me, especially his conservative approach to taxes (and government's fingers in said taxes), plus his pro-life stance. I strongly believe in the latter, that a baby is a baby is a BABY long before it emerges from the womb. I find it hard to understand how someone can be prosecuted for murdering two people if they kill a pregnant woman -- but it doesn't 'count,' otherwise.
This having been said, Obama's approach on several areas has also appealed to me. I like the idea of change. I admire his matter-of-fact responses to his naysayers. (And thought he ran an especially dignified campaign against Mrs. Clinton, considering how nasty it could have gotten.)
McCain...Obama. Obama...McCain. Maybe we should go back to old times, when the top winner gets to be president, and the runner-up is vice president!
Ok. Yes. I know that's not going to happen.
So...I have to pick one candidate.
And the Republican party, which in the past has had more than its share of 'good 'ol boys' networks, now has a woman -- and an accomplished one, at that -- as its VP candidate?!? Running along with someone who has repeatedly stood up to the establishment and advocated his own strongly-held beliefs?
Wonders may never cease.
I applaud McCain's gutsy decision to choose Sarah Palin...a working mom, governor, environmental advocate...and to tell the truth, it makes me admire him (and her) even more.
Now let's see what happens in the coming months.
