Isn't this great news to read? This is a sign of things to come. Palin has good values and common sense. She has a good record as governor and she has been vetted to the max unlike Obama who was never vetted. Also she is pro-Oil and Gas and that is what this country needs.......more drilling. She will do fine because she connects with the average citizen and she understands how middle America works.
