    sounds like the campaign is trying to be open and put everything on the table upfront for the sake of transparency and moving on to more important issues.

    I don't think this is even an item worth disussing but I also don't think this is the McCain campaigns effort at being forthcoming for the sake of full disclosure. If that were the case why didn't they announce all this on Friday? Why is all this coming out when the media and the nation as a whole is focused on the possible devestation by Hurricane Gustav?

    None of this news is so ground breaking that it couldn't have waited a few days either.

    It seems calculated and well thought out IMO.

    It's brilliant and it'll probably work so congrats to them on that.

    I think that they are putting it out themselves so that the Democrats and/or the media doesn't "discover" it later and put it out as if the McCain/Palin camp was hiding it - the whole "it's not the crime but the cover-up that kills you" philosophy.

    probably because it wasn't the appropriate time or place to mention it yet.

    seems like they'd be damned if they didn't (dems would reveal it and portray it as if repubs were hiding it) and damned if they did...
    and i'm sure they're hoping everyone is more focused on gustav! still, i really don't think they could help the timing of it...

    they timed the vp announcement to be the day after obama's big surmon on the mount! to try to steal his thunder... just typical political posturing...

    I'm sorry but she introduced her entire family, how hard would it have been to say "and we're blessed that our daughter Bristol is expecting her first child later this year"
