Can Obama hold enough of Democratic base together to win the election?
Yes McCain's selection of Palin was to shore up his base, but by selecting a women he went directly after part of Obama's base (Female Hillary voters).
To me, the Obama side is crying foul over something they should have done themselves in the first place.
He has only himself to blame if he loses this election.

I don't agree much with you, but I do enjoy discussing with you. You keep it civil, which I greatly appreciate.

PATHETIC! This thread and the premise of the OP is pure CRAP! Clearly what I am seeing here is the typical Dem double-standard of "It is OK for me to question and belittle everything about you but don't you dare do that to me" mentality. And frankly... it is transparent as glass.
I am absolutely amazed by the liberal blindness in this campaign... Obama (Who is running for PRESIDENT!) has less experience than the Republican ticket's choice for VP, yet they continually attack Palin's supposed lack of experience without addressing Obama's much more serious lack thereof.
Next, as the ticket of alleged "Change" Obama selects one of the longest standing Senators from the old guard - Biden has served for 36 years! Yeah, that is change I can believe in.
The Democrats are being exposed and realized for being the hypocrites that they really are and people are catching on. The tantrums being thrown by the left are typical when they can't put one over on the public.
And before any moronic partisan barbs come flying my way - I am NOT voting for McCain/Palin, I'm voting third party. I'm just calling it as I see it - and how millions of other Americans are seeing it as well.

Cheap tactics.....Like running a young black man to get the left wing votes.
Please the DNC is just as guilty. Just not as smart. Hillary would have won Obama the election.
They made a major mistake and McCain took advantage of it. Palin has put McCain ahead in electoral votes, and as we know from Gore...Popular vote does not matter.

I find it silly that there are people want to stop or quell PROGRESS - this notion is the MOST FUTILE of ideas. THE same "conservative minded" people of the past believed in: an oath of faith, slavery, no vote for women, white supremacy ( in the public domain )

2. To me, it was a direct insult to women. Let's face it. This action was a direct response to Hillary Clinton not getting the nomination, and it was political ploy to deepen the rift among democrats. Is this "change"? No. It was a blatant and shameless pandering effort on behalf of the Republicans to appeal to women.
She has very little experience and does not have half the judgment that Obama has exhibited oer this TWO YEAR vetting process.
