Actually, I think Sarah Palin was a masterful move by McCain -but the pun was just too good not to use. Months ago, when it was clear who our presumptive nominees would be, Karol and I agreed that Obama needed to pick an old white guy and McCain needed to pick someone young. After all the carping about why Obama didn’t put Hillary on the ticket, I began to suspect that McCain planned to pick a chick. I thought it’d be Hutch…buy hey, Sarah me up. Now, first and foremost I would like to welcome Alaska and Hawaii to presidential politics. Who’s my little non contiguous states? You are, yes you are noncontiguous…but here you are represented on each of the big boy tickets. Good for you guys. Now, as for Palin, she’s definitely an unknown entity. The more I hear about her (never been on Meet the Press, scandals about firing her ex bro in law, didn’t know what a Veep even did a few months ago) the more I think this is good for Obamiden. Of course, she might take to the national spotlight like fish to a fishbowl and then all that won’t matter. Of course, I hope she chokes, but in terms of the bigger picture: hope and change in America, I am super psyched about this Presidential election. Right now, I think the Dems have the best of it, but now, whoever wins, changes the face of American politics forever. USA USA USA…seriously, I have got to stop that.
