It is still hilarious how the DEMS presidential candidate is being compared to the REPS VP candidate as if the libs already concede Oblama is the lesser of the two experience wise (which is true)... Alah I cannot wait for McCain to eat Oblama alive in a head to head debate....(no teleprompters or scripted questions)... LMAO

just out of curosity, why does it reflect very poorly on his judgement that he chose a woman VP? is it because she's a mom? (cause most moms have similar issues. it's part of being a mom).

This appears to be pure speculation. A theory requires at least some evidence and you list or link to nothing. Do you have something to share to give credence to your speculation?
To consider this we at least need to know the position or professions of your sources and why they would have such intimate inside knowledge. Otherwise, just pure guesswork?
The only credible criticism of Palin would be about her firing of one of her staff, which is so well known here that it is a non issue here. Now I did not vote for Palin, but I don't think people who care about gossip like the lie about her child and the fact her teenage daughter is a normal human probably don't even vote.
The only negatives we are hearing here are from our out of state owned paper who only endorses Democrats and a single Liberal talk show host on a local radio program.
I think you are grossly underestimating the intellegence of people who actually vote if you believe that her daughter getting pregnant would cost any votes to speak of. The other nonsense about her kid only makes people more likely to vote for her out of anger at the Kos. Obama endorsed the Kos when he made a special trip to their get together a while back.
I started out to consider Obama and liked him until he refused the public funding exposing him as someone who fails to keep promises and then I started leaning toward McCain as the lesser of two evils. These lies about Palin and this attack on her teenage daughter is driving me even more that direction. Others are parroting my thoughts and I think this will blow up in Obama's face. He has yet to distance himself from Kos. He did say the right things, but until he denounces the Daily Kos, I can't tilt his direction. And yes I'm the classic swing voter who often does not decide until election day.

Also, it should be noted that Tom Ridge and Rudy Guliani have been dropped as speakers to night, and Lieberman is the keynote speaker. Perhaps the McCain camp is trying to see what the GOP's reception of him may be, and then replace Palin with Lieberman if it's positive??
Poll Watch: Rasmussen Daily Tracking Update (9/1)

Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 1,000 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The margin of sampling error—for the full sample of 3,000 Likely Voters–is +/- 2 percentage points.
Inside the numbers:
Obama receives favorable reviews from 85% of Democrats while McCain is now viewed favorably by 90% of Republicans. Both men are viewed favorably by 60% of unaffiliated voters. Enthusiasm among Republicans for McCain is up significantly since the announcement of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his running mate. Fifty-one percent (51%) of GOP voters now have a Very Favorable opinion of McCain, the first time he has ever topped the 50% level in that measure. On Friday morning, just 43% were that enthusiastic about McCain.
