Oh man, I'm gonna get it for this one but...
I can't help but like the girl. But I can't stand McCain. (and I'm going to have to admit that Obama's speech last night really did sway me to
his side *sigh* i can't figure out if I'm being duped or if he really did state his case sufficiently)
After all that I've read about the woman, I kinda like her.
I like her energy policies. Her ethics seem to be very very strong (although her dismissal of the Public Commission possibly being due to his
refusal to fire a state trooper who was going through a divorce/custody battle with her sister is a bit shady). I don't agree with her stance on gay
marriage but it is at least commendable that she vetoed of legislation that would have barred the state from granting gays the same benefits that
heterosexual spouses get.
She so far seems pretty stand up. McCain's VP pick is definitely going to make this a very close race. It will be interesting to say the least.
Side note: I like how, in Obama's speech, he mentioned that this race shouldn't be about smearing one's character and questioning their patriotism.
It makes me want to see if McCain will continue to run his smear campaign. Obama set the bar there, and I wonder if McCain will rise above it. If
not, I think it really does question McCain's ability to run on the issues alone. I've always thought that a candidate that cannot do that doesn't
have a very strong stance on the issues and knows it.
