It will definitely be a woman or some minority.

I called it!

Well I'll be goddamned!  This mofo McCain picked a woman!  Sarah Palin out of Alaska.  But how's dude gonna criticize Obama for experience when this chick was only in office a few years?

He can't!! And I think that is the wonderful thing about his pick...she has even less experience than Obama. Prior to her being elected governor in 2006, she was mayor of a city with a population of 5,400. McCain is 72 years old, which makes his VP pick's ability to be POTUS even more vital, IMO. By choosing her, I think he's taken away some of the sting in his argument against BO. If Sarah Palin is ready to be our President, Barack is certainly ready. Also, she can never use that attack line against Obama - the words "not ready" should never cross her lips.

Also, I think it's very risky of McCain to pick someone so untested in national politics. Barack has had the benefit of long primary battle and he f'ed up in the beginning, as anyone would in the beginning. But he had time to learn and grow as a candidate. Palin has less than 70 days to get it. And she has to debate Joe Biden. I cannot wait to see that.

I think she will have some appeal to conservative women and hard core Hillary lovers. And she will ensure that McCain wins Alaska's THREE electoral votes, but he was going to do that anyway. But will she help in Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico and Nevada, the real swing states?? I'm not so sure...


be careful...alaska is like the wide west...and palin can shoot a gun...this definately just got interesting...

She can shoot a gun, she a strong pro-lifer and strong on reform. She will definitely attract conservative women and hard core feminists but I do not believe she will win the battle for Reagan Dems. I think Biden will help Obama more than she will help McCain. She is certainly a surprising, interesting, game changing pick but I don't think she is enough to help McCain win in November.

Being vehemently pro-life does not win "hardcore feminists" - let's all please be careful to differentiate between hardcore Hillary supporters and hardcore feminists, as they are nowhere near the same thing.

lest we forget that the working female vote helped give "w" his second term...and what about those pumas?...

disenchantment?  the dems have only hiliary to thank...but females everywhere can thank hiliary for the 18 million cracks...

perhaps the ceiling will shatter?


what do aye know...aye enjoyed obamas historic speech and the independent nature of his nomination...

like aye said before...for we the independents this is a win--win...situation.

No.  She.  Didn't.

Feminist issues remain the exact same.  The approach has always been subject to debate since the inception of the movement.  Stop watching Fox and read a book or fifty about feminism before asserting that Clinton confused the issues.  I don't give a rat's @ss about the "female" vote in '04 - not all women are feminists, not all feminists are women.  I very, very, very infrequently bother to reply to your posts, but I'm simply not willing to let such a gross fallacy stand as political commentary.
