Mr. McCain’s advisers said Friday that Mr. McCain was well aware that Ms. Palin would be criticized for her lack of foreign policy experience, but that he viewed her as exceptionally talented and intelligent and that he felt she would be able to be educated quickly.

“She’s going to learn national security at the foot of the master for the next four years, and most doctors think that he’ll be around at least that long,” said Charlie Black, one of Mr. McCain’s top advisers, making light of concerns about Mr. McCain’s health, which Mr. McCain’s doctors reported as excellent in May.


Most doctors think he'll be around at least that long. I think that is not a chance I'd like to take

From watching several interviews, and recorded speaches,, Palin is way too smart to be a lousy President.. In the unlikely event that she becomes President because McCain is unable to continue, Palin is way too smart to not surround herself with plenty of good advisors. Just listen to her, she's VERY sharp.

I don't vote for or against a president based on an expectation that he/she may die in office.. and often the VP pick is the least thing on my mind when I vote,, it's the President I'm voting for..

I can't wait to hear Palin make a speach or two during the campaign...

I find your claim of "enthusiasm" a bit hollow
Devil says.

I also am experiencing enthusiasm with his choice, more so than I have in many years, maybe since I've started voting. When I heard the choice and checked out her character (as best as can be done) I had a renewed interest in the race. If it were the same old hacks running for office, I might have voted for neither.

As far as moveon's comments, what do you expect? I can think of only one perfect Person who ever walked this earth.

I feel much the same as stoker-man.

In addition: She's not a lawyer, she's about as American as you can get, she has a son in the military, I don't doubt that she would wear an American Flag pin on her lapel and I've seen footage of her visiting Veterans and placing her hand over her heart, when appropriate.

Plus, I'd bet , she'd carry coal for the stove, if she had to.

So would I. Perhaps we will get lucky and she will move to the top of the ticket in two yrs. and one day, then she will get promoted to pres. Not that I want to see McCain drop dead, but Palin will make a better pres than McCain. In Eight years Palin will only be 52 yrs. old. Then she can choose Michael Steele for her VP. Then in 2024 Michael Steele can choose up and coming Lousiana governer Bobby Gindel for his VP. :cheers: A toast to the end of liberalism

I'll drink to that. Michael Steele is an up and comer. When he was running for leut. Gov. and then for Senate in MD, the Sun (local liberal rag paper) trashed him as "not black enough".

Barack Obama went to Maryland right before the 2006 election to campain against Michael steele. Obama went into black neighborhoods and gave several speeches Just before the election and tipped the scales against Steele. I appoligise but I can't remember the name of his opponent. I don't live in Maryland. Perhaps Yanche or other Marylanders can name the senator.( Not black enough ) If A Republican said that wouldn't that be racist?

"The biggest difference, as I see it, between Sarah Palin and Barack Obama

One of them is little more than an elegant, attractive, dare I say sexy piece of eye candy.

The other one kills her own food."

At least her daughter who may or may not have made a mistake, won't be punished with a baby. Barock's daughters would be.

Republican Lt. Gov. Steele was running for the Senate against Democrat Rep. Ben Cardin. Cardin won and he fits the stereotypical description of a US Senator....an old white guy. The trouble is in the Peoples Republic of Maryland you have to be a Democrat to win two counties and carry the state election. In 2002 Bob Ehrlich was the first Republican governor in at least 40 years and it was a total shock. We thought they must have made a mistake and forgot to count all the dead votes in Baltimore & Montgomery counties. This was corrected in the 2006 election when Ehrlich won every other county in the state but those two and lost the election to Martin O'Malley. During his first term Ehrlich was part of the new breed of Republican that feel the need to tax and spend. After watching Ehrlich raise taxes and O'Malley run Baltimore into the ground (as mayor)I voted for neither in the 2006 election.

It's a real shame that the daughter has to live this part of her life out in the spotlight like this. I feel very badly for her because of the media scrutiny and national judgement she will experience.

Palin wants to drill for oil in her state, is managing a large pipe line for natural gas and has cut government in her state. I don't know all the issues with her but what I hear I like. I wish that Palin was running. Experience doesn't mean that much to me as someone who is tough, has common sense and want to do the right things for the nation. Unfortunately she isn't running. There are many American who won't vote for Obama because he's black but there is probably more Americans who won't vote for a woman for president. I'm not sure if it would keep them from voting her is as VP.
