John McCain, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, has just picked a woman to be his running mate for Vice President!!! McCain's pick is Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. McCain just made it more difficult for Obama to win. Some Democrats who voted for Hillary, and felt slighted by Obama having chosen a man, might defect to McCain.
After a wonderful Democratic Convention it seemed like Barack Obama might be unstoppable. But McCain's pick has just made life more difficult for Senator Obama.
History was made when Sen. Obama officially became the first African American presidential nominee. History will be made again due to McCain's choice. As a women I am elated. No matter who wins, a female will become a Vice Presidential nominee. Personally I would love to see a female V.P., but not at the expense of the country. Not for 4 more years of Bush like policies. Not for a prolonged war in Iraq. Not for more bloodshed. It's to high of a cost. I will still vote for Obama.
McCain has just rocked the boat! NOW we have a real race folks. Finally McCain can say that he is the candidate of change with some credibility.
CORRECTION - Gov. Palin is the second female vice presidential candidate on a major party ticket, and a first for the GOP. The first female vice presidential candidate was Geraldine Ferraro. Silly me! I remember her. Still, this is major news!
