This is the worst pick McCain could have made. His only chance in this election was to convince enough voters that "experience," is a critical
factor. Now, with the selection of Palin to the ticket he had rendered that issue dead.
He just cost himself the election because he and his campaign panicked over Obama's speech last night. They never expected him to go after McCain
the way he did.
They panicked, pure and simple.
Lol... you sound like a scared child trying to convince himself that there really are no monsters under his bed.
You have it completely backwards.
The first criticism the Dems will make of Palin is that she's inexperienced. This will be reflected back onto Obama in about 3/10s of a second. You
will see ads of Dems, who instinctively will attack Palin's inexperience. But the ads will be McCain's, and the ads will ask who the Dems are
referring to? Obama or Palin?
This was a brilliant strategic move. Absolutely perfect in terms of strategy, timing, and demographics.
OH... and I almost forgot an important point. Obama's lack of experience may be the least of his worries. If his inexperience is no longer an
issue, he will be forced to defend his socialist-leaning policies, which will turn off even more voters.
Obama will WISH the debate were about his experience.
