I confess disappointment because I was hoping for McCain/Huckabee - but I'm not at all unhappy with this choice. I do fear this will only get him more heat for "not being Republican enough," though. (Like that really should matter.)

...And I thank God it was not Romney.

I just think it's kind of sad that people look at her and assume that because she is "young and pretty" it means she must be a moron.

Seems every article about her mentions that she won a beauty pageant. so what lol?

I was so excited about the announcement I just about did a happy dance down my aisle at work. It was hard to stay in my cubicle. LOL I have a friend in Alaska so we already knew about her. She's down to earth, straightforward..... basically not a politician. hahaha... I could not be any happier unless it was Huckabee/Palin. I think she will do a wonderful job!

She may not have the "life long corrupt politician" experience but she certainly seems to have more experience than the rest at REALLY fighting for the people she represents. From things I have read she has done A LOT to help Alaskans and bring money back to the citizens instead of taking it from them with a PROMISE that it would come back to them.

If am wrong I will gladly eat my words....

But she almost me hope for a REAL person in the white house who cares about REAL people and REAL issues and is willing REALLY fight for them.

She is close to what everyone has been asking for... a REAL person and not a lifetime politician. I hope she can stay the way she is... and not be influenced.

I agree Sparks !! I hope she doesn't disappoint me ! I'm so [email protected] tired of politicians who seem to be in Washington forever ... feeding off each other and the American public ! I know that the VP doesn't have much control , but I sure hope she makes a difference . I'm glad I can finally decide which way to go this fall !!! I really don't see O'Bama living very long if elected . And we know that McCain may not last long ! To me the VPs are important !!!! Choose wisely folks !!! This is a gut vote this year !

Yep... not only that Grammy but I think choosing her as a VP will hopefully set a precedent that you don't have to pick someone who is all "mobbed" up in DC politics. Perhaps more REAL people will come out of the woodwork in the future... real QUALIFIED people who will fight FOR THE PEOPLE and not for lobbyists.

One can hope right?

You guys like this lady?

No experience, for one, and she's ALREADY under investigation for something probably corrupt.

Nevertheless, she is under investigation for her firing of a state official, Public Safety Commissioner Walt Monegan. She has been instructed to hand over documents and recordings of telephone conversations as part of the inquiry, which grew out of allegations that she sacked Monegan for refusing to fire her former brother-in-law from the state police.

She has denied wrongdoing.

But Palin acknowledged that a member of her staff made a call to a trooper in which the staffer suggested that he was speaking for the governor.

Palin has admitted that the call could be interpreted as pressure to fire state trooper Mike Wooten, who was locked in a child-custody battle with Palin's sister. She suspended the staffer who made the call.
Great. ANOTHER politician who's going to use her power for her own selfish needs. Just what we need in a VP!

Being under investigation does not a guilty person make. This guy could have more than deserved to be fired, got fired, and then pieced together a way to fight it (ie knowing about the former BIL and the situation)..........through accusations and rumors, happens everyday.

I am in no way defending her because I really don't know much about her, but we all know how "under investigation" goes...........even if she is above board and clean, she will be seen in a different light after the accusations........damage done, same as rumors in our own life :(
