I have one initial reaction to mccain's selection of sarah palin as his VP candidate.
as much as he has troubled conservatives, he might have just saved their movement with her selection. she is immediately approvable and popular. she neutralizes obama's novelty factor, while bringing anti-corruption, youth, energy and pro-life values.
I think mccain will now win this election and leave office after a first term. she would then stand down hillary in 2012. her youth immediately relieves mccain's basic age problem.
has he discovered the next TR?
