Could it be Sarah Palin

nullWord is out that Senator McCain is making a bold choice of Governor Sarah Palin. Today may indeed be the day the election was won. The history making factor is no longer the province of the Democrats alone. This is proof that God loves Republicans too. Way to go McCain. For More information on the next Vice President of the United States.

Hillary Clinton supporters, despite what some Republicans are reporting or "wishing" are not "Ripe for the picking." When I heard those words, from one of your staunch Republican supporters, I began to rethink my own comments that have been plastered all over the Republican blogs, that I made while in Denver at the DNC.

While Democrats will argue that Sarah Palin has no experience, so will the Republicans argue that Barack Obama has no experience. There is one big huge difference though that I think Senator McCain fell short on! If he dies while in office, Sarah Palin will pick up the gauntlet and have to run with it. As a former military officer in the United States Air Force and one who experienced horrific tragedy by assisting with the identification and processing of the soldiers killed in Beirut nearly 25 years ago, I must say - NO WAY, ANY DAY, do I want this inexperienced women leading our country. Joe Biden at least has the international experience and Armed Services experience to run with that "gauntlet" if something happens to Senator Obama.

Your desperate Senator McCain and your choice for the VP now shows. Women, especially, Hillary Clinton supporters, are 'NOT RIPE FOR THE PICKING' and many will see through your desperate attempt to put a woman on the ticket. You see, we didn't want any woman, we wanted Hillary Clinton because she was the best choice to lead our country. If you do happen to get four years out of this next election, women will get it right the next time -- but to be perfectly honest, I don't think you will.

Governor Palin will be assertive and most likely attack Senator Obama for not choosing Senator Clinton as his VP running mate and coming from her, it will be credible and many will listen to that argument. Still, why it won't be Sarah Palin will be for the same reasons the Republican party went for the jugglers on Barack Obama -- EXPERIENCE. Once again - Senator McCain is 72 years old and I don't want my country left in the hands of this 2 year Governor. Elections are not decided on the VP though, that's why I changed my mind to go with the party I have been affiliated with for 35 years. Our country is in such a mess because of George Bush and his go it alone policies that we can't afford another 4 years of the same.

I think your argument lacks merit. She has more executive experience than the last 3 Democcrat tickets combined. She matches and excedes people like FDR and TR as well as Grover Cleavland and Abraham Lincoln.

Let's get real. She has shown great decision making abilities, and if for some reason something happened, she would have had McCain's mentoring and his national security team (whom she would know since by law the VP is on the NSC).

You can't seriously say that picking a rising star and mentoring them in number 2 is the same as picking a rising star and mentoring them in number 1.

Please rethink your comment. As for my Senator, what executive experience can you judge Joe Biden on? He never had any. McCain had command experience and Palin has had 8 years of it plus ran two businesses.

I won't disagree that both the number 1 in the Democratic party and the number 2 in the Republican party both have experience issues. At the end of the day, it will come down to two major issues: The Iraq war and who will protect America and the Economy! Since the Republicans have had the last eight years to get it all wrong, I'm voting on my candidate of choice which is Senator Obama. He will make the smart choices to surround himself with brillant people and they will work hard to support the American people. I stand firm and re-state my comments that I am "not ripe for the pickin."
