Governor Palin for VP?

Alaska Governor Sarah Palin appeared on Kudlow & Co this week. Check it out here.

This was my first opportunity to see her "perform" and I found her quite appealing, if not impressive, particularly as a communicator. Of all the VP candidates for McCain being bandied about, my question would be: why not Palin? Perhaps she falls short in the foreign policy department (which I'm sure is a big deal to McCain), but frankly, what's to recommend any of the other VP candidates being discussed? Take Tim Pawlenty: he gets mentioned frequently, but he's no more qualified than Palin, and in this year of identity politics, he's just another pasty white guy with a flat, nasal voice. McCain needs a little pizazz in his campaign. Palin would add that better than most, it seems.

McCain could (and probably will) do worse.

I Love speculating about the VP, I found a site that has alot of info on all the veep candidates with videos and petitions you can sign for or against potential vp candidates, I signed a petition to ask McCain not to pick Romney or Palin, and I signed one asking McCain to pick Huckabee. I also signed a petition to ask Obama to pick Clark, I might actually vote for Obama if Clark was on the ticket. Sweet site. You can go sign petition at http://www.TheVeep.com or you can sign it at http://www.veeppeek.com

Pastor Mike -

Obama is such a bogus candidate I can't see that any choice of VP makes any realistic difference. If by "Clark" you mean the former General it would make the ticket even worse than Obama and just about anyone else as this guy was a walking CF in the military and was so bad that Clinton even had to can him.

Huckabee is a pro-life big government liberal and would be a disaster as far as the Conservative base for McCain goes. He shafted Conservatives by hanging around until Romney was finished even though he was realistically out of it early.

This election is probably even worse than the Ford/Carter debacle.
