Palin Was a Brilliant Choice

Now Obama is campaigning against her instead of McCain:

In an interview on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360 Monday night, Obama was asked about whether his experience in the U.S. Senate dealing with weather-related situations compares to Palin’s executive experience running the state of Alaska and as the small town mayor of Wasilla, Alaska.

At least in this instance, McCain’s been able to dictate the debate.  And in this case, he’s put himself above it.

  1. Interesting that Obama chose a “safe” VP and McCain took the road less travelled. I just hope this means more people will turn out to vote.

    But I’m practical enough to realize we’ll only see about a 2% rise from the last election. And that’s probably just taking into account the kids in the boomlet who have turned 18 since then.

    The more things change…

    You said it. I’d like to believe that the people who don’t vote are enlightened enough to realize the choices they are being presented aren’t really choices. The fact is that they are just practical enough to realize that it simply doesn’t matter.

  3. victor and sadcox I believe in this instance/election it really does matter. I also look back to when I was old enough to vote-30 years ago. The country was in turmoil, recession around the corner, etc. I’m obviously not a poli-sci major, politician, etc.
    Anyway, 30 yrs ago I was heavily influenced by how my parents and grandparents voted, because I was too wrapped in my own self- I was also in the military by that time. I signed up when I was 17.
    I sincerely hope that those groundpounders that are “getting the word out” can actually get in contact with this new generation. I’m not slamming young voters, my son will vote for the first time this election. He cares nothing about the news, election, terrorism, freedom, etc., I can only bring up the subjects and hope for some discourse. I do believe, as I have said before- Washington is nervous- both left and right- due to their self interest these past decades, as they have made politics a living instead of living for US. It is up to us to make a difference and restore some sort of what is right, honest and faithful in Washington. I don’t believe I am being “naive”, however, I really do think McCain/Palin can make a difference.
