    VP pick.
    One one hand I like it, it signals that maybe McCain is being his own man again (the convention's theme last night). On the other hand it makes very little sense.

    It removes his primary attack on Obama that he is too inexperienced. Sure she is just the VP but McCain is 72, it makes his VP pick a bit more important. It will help target some of those disillusioned Hillary voters but chasing the other guy's campaign doesn't seem like a strategy to win.

    Biden I like. He was actually my early favorite in the Democratic nomination. Both him and Obama are from humble roots, regardless of how the Republicans will try and paint them as elitists now. Funny how its the "American Dream" when a CEO makes $50 million for getting fired but it is elitist when people from humble roots forgo the same perks for a life in public service.

    Why is his age a factor? He won't be the youngest person sworn into the Presidency.

    TBH Palin is a joke, even by American standards. Running for VP and she wants to ban abortion, believes in creationism, doesn’t believe man has anything to do with global warming and wants Alaska to become an independent country. She’s even got it in for polar bears! You just couldn’t make it up.

    Lets say he was sworn into the Presidency for a minute..

    How many other Presidents had cancer FOUR times before they even reached the White House?

    McCain's health became an issue the minute he picked Sarah Palin for VP. If he had picked someone more experienced or least a better Woman for VP then he wouldn't be dealing with this now. (That basically leaves more then 1/2 of the Republican party at this point.)

    Oh, and criticizing Sarah Palin does not make you Sexist. If she wants to be treated like any other VP Candidate then the GOP should be ready to take the heat when she's called out on BS.

    The only fear I have of Palin at this point is the fact she could possibly do worse then Bush as the President.

    And I never thought I'd say someone could do worse then Bush in my lifetime never mind ever.
