And The Envelope Is In, Sarah Palin To Be McCain's Running Mate
for 24-Hours of Propaganda
In one of the boldest and most brilliant moves of the entire election campaign, John McCain announced today that Sarah Palin, Alaska of Governor, is going to be his Vice-Presidential running mate.
Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, Republican Vice-Presidential Candidate. Hot.
John McCain makes the move in hopes of solidifying his growing base of defecting Hillary Clinton voters. Despite what Clinton has done since losing the Democratic Primary to dark horse Barack Obama, most of it publicly has been geared at receiving relief of her massive campaign debt. There has been no relief of the growing animosity between Clinton, Obama, and the battle ground of the Democratic Party.
McCain's announcement takes the wind out of the sails of the Democratic National Convention, as it had already been reported that Obama was going to go with the seasoned veteran of Joe Biden, a foreign policy expert and well-respected legislater on both sides of the aisle. Essentially, Obama took the "safe pick", letting down many of Clinton's supporters who did not realize that she would have had to turn down any interest in being Vice-President due to the invasive and rigours "vetting process" due presumptively to the shady operations of various investments involving her and her husband, former President Bill Clinton.
Look for a shaky few days as Palin's record for compromise on issues she has personal convictions on while legislating for the benefit of everyone takes time to fully surface. On the surface her issues platform may look to be diametrically opposed to that which most Clinton supporters have followed Clinton on, but the McCain Campaign will soon be able to pigeon-hole her into the niche that fills the hole in their heart after having the possibilities of 8 more years of "Clinton Utopia" snatched from their grasp by Obama, who many feel has a quickly diminishing chance of winning the election.
