Yeah...that's scandal. Pfffffffft.

I'm not voting for him regardless, but IMO, Palin would be a brilliant move. That "scandal" has pretty much blown over in Alaska, from what I've read.

Romney would apparently be the safe choice, since he has name recognition and conservatives seem to like him.

I was wrong on Obama picking Bayh, so I'm probably wrong here, too, but I think Johnny Mac could score a lot of political points by picking Palin.

-- He makes the bold choice for an outsider, while the guy preaching "change" goes with the archetypal DC business-as-usual insider.

-- He points out that the GOP ticket is ordered properly, with the experienced candidate on top.

-- He appeases the voters who wanted a woman on one of the tickets this year.

-- He gets a staunch conservative, which would appease the right.

-- He gives GOP voters a young person who can symbolize the future of the party.

-- He gets a few votes from people who vote for a pretty face. Shallow as it sounds, they're out there.

Should be interesting.

Last week, McCain's campaign released ads almost simultaneously with Obama's announcement that he'd picked Biden.

Romney's out, according to Fox.

If it's Palin, wow. Smartest move McCain could make and would get a standing ovation from me for sure! Special needs moms unite! :-)

Palin would probably be a smart choice. And if nothing else, it will cause her stock to rise for the future. She can only help McCain's bid. I can't think of any negatives she'd bring.

Palin only courts to the women voters who are scorned over clinton. This to me makes McCain seem desperate for women votes. She has only served one term as a governor, so you McCain supporters criticizing Obama for no experience need to put a sock in your mouth if he picks Palin.

Love her style though, she's is pretty too.

Hopefully it is Gov. Palin. What a brilliant decision if this is true.
