Yesterday I learned that John McCain picked Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice-Presidential running mate. I am surprised and not surprised about it.
I know nothing about Palin, but she’s a woman, which is fantastic. This country will either have an African-American President or a female Vice-President and it’s about time! This is the kind of history that should have been made a long time ago.

Interesting and smart move, right? I can clearly see why McCain made this choice.
- He’s trying to attract those former Hillary fans.
- He wanted to keep the conservatives happy.
- He wanted someone who’s young and dynamic.
Fair enough. But I am assuming that John McCain really analyzed who Palin is, her believes and abilities, before making his decision. While researching about Sarah Palin online, I learned that she is a member of the NRA and likes to hunt and fish. She also supports drilling for oil in the Alaskan National Wildlife Refuge.
It’s a big risk taken by our oldest ever candidate for president. But it might work.
What do you guys think?
