We'd all like t'vote for th' best man, but he's never a candidate. ~ Kin Hubbard
How funny that McCain chose a woman as his veep? I'm sure I wasn't the only person who was shocked by this. I think that is a pretty interesting move on his part. So far, I am impressed with her. She has 5 kids. She's 44 and had a baby with Downs Syndrome this past April so she is pro-life and pro-family. She worked her way into politics through the PTA group at her school and her husband is a commercial fisherman. Her oldest son enlisted in the army last year will be deployed to Iraq this year. She seems to be in tune with the middle class family who have larger families, kids in the military, and are pro-life conservatives since no one running this year really seemed to care about pro-life voters. Maybe that is what our country needs. Someone who knows what normal people are dealing with. Maybe this will motivate me to figure out what is going on with my voter's registration card (why I don't have it yet) so I can vote this fall.
