It is two weeks since Palin’s name was announced by McCain; I think we are no longer that confused :). Yes, she is relatively young, attractive and has an ultra conservative background. But frankly, isn’t this exactly what Republican party needs to energize their voters ? Even the Democrats have shown such a strong reaction to Palin choice, I expected at least a few positive words from the influential women democrats.
Here is a quote from California senator Barbara Boxer(D): “Sen. McCain had so many other options if he wanted to put a woman on his ticket, such as Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison or Sen. Olympia Snowe -? they would have been an appropriate choice compared to this dangerous choice.” Isn’t that funny ?? Yes, McCain should have taken Democrat’s advice and put another sure loser on the ticket of V.P. to make all this look correct in the traditional sense… The exact reason to put Sarah Palin on the V.P. contention is for McCain to have someone he can trust, and a bonus if she also helps his candidacy thru all this buzz. As the saying goes, “There is no such thing as bad publicity”
Then there’s the other question: how in the world can you manage 5 kids while having a V.P.‘s responsibilities ? Of course this question was never posted to a man running for any high office…Here is a funny reply found on the web: If Bill Clinton can juggle 5 chicks, why can?t Sarah Palin juggle 5 kids? 🙂
