What’s up with Sarah Palin? The Democrats did not pick Tim Kaine in part because his electoral experience was Richmond City Council, Mayor of Richmond and not quite 3 years as governor of Virginia. Sound a lot like Palin’s resume. This is the woman that John McCain picked – at age 72 – to sit a hearbeat away fromt the Presidency? At least Tim speaks Spanish and has lived in Latin America.
This reminds me a lot of the Dan Quayle pick. Of course, maybe I don’t want to think about that too much as that worked – or at least didn’t hurt the Republicans. And reports are that she’s on tape saying she really didn’t want to be vice president because she didn’t know what a vice president did (!). She also under investigation for corrpution in Alaska.
I think this is a cynical move to curry favor with the religious right and maybe some Clinton supporters. I hope the Bill and Hillary have made it clear enough that John McCain and now Sara Palin stand in opposition for everything Hillary was fighting for during the primaries.
