YOU can only slow it down - MY kind get the last laugh ALWAYS - even if it is from the grave.
I am not upset she is a woman, I am upset because I believe that the RNC is using the fact that she IS a woman for political gain, not because she would be the bet candidate. Country First? Hardly... Should be Politics First.
The idea of President Palin is just plain scary to me and seems like an impulsive, reckless, and primarily political decision on McCain's part.
McCain is not a healthy man
You know you can just decide to not vote for McCain due to his choice of Palin.
Obama chose someone who was strong on foreign policy and experience, where he himself was somewhat weak. He chose someone who has a lot of experience and could make a seamless transition should Obama die in office.
What this all comes down to is that if you like the status quo, vote for McCain-Palin. If you want change, vote for Obama-Biden.
The people on top of the heap don't want change because they might not be on top any more.
New threads in the Campaign 2008 forum must be based on published candidate platform items, either officially, or from recent interviews....

Why is it a cheap stunt? Because they are trying to win???
Don't you think the Democrats are doing everything they possibly can to win??
Luckily for us, that decision is left up to the voters of the individual states to decide, and not your or me.
If you google her name, you can (or could a week ago) find old youtube videos of a "write in campaign" that stretches back to april, of republicans wanting her as a VP for whomever won the primaries.
I'm not sure how you insult a group by selecting one of their members as a running mate.

BH, are you saying the Democrats don't have the party unity to "close ranks" to win an election?
She adds nothing to the ticket but votes.
