This rumor has been all over the net yesterday and today, but it looks like John McCain’s VP Choice will be Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin. If accurate, this could be a fantastic choice for McCain.
First, Palin is supposedly a fabulous campaigner (don't know if true). She is not a boring white guy as Newt Gingrich warned the GOP to avoid. She is only 44, which sort of highlights McCain's age, but unlike Joe Biden, she is an actual executive official and if chose would be the only one of the four people at the top of the tickets to have lead a state. She is younger than Obama, but see teh experience factor.
She has no foriegn policy experience, which could cut against her.
What helps McCain? Palin will appeal to the very women that Obama is starting to lose across the country, working women and younger women.
We will see what happens.
