And...
Her lack of exeperience is a huge issue with women, 52% see her less favorably when they learn she's never served in DC and has no foreign policy experience.

Like we all have said from the beginning; Women are not dumb when it comes to politics. They vote on issues not gender. Yeah, a lot of women would love to see a woman in oval office, but if they don't represent their views, why vote for them. Women as well as minorities have struggled for so long for equal opportunity. Why throw that away just to see someone like them in office. This is the reason why women where so passionate about Hillary. Because she truly represented the modern day women. She was one bad (let me shut my mouth) women. And as an straight highly educated African American male, I supported Hillary because I thought she was a better candidate. She lost. Oh well. Move on. This is America. Run again in 4 years.

But, McCain's stupid move to place Palin on the ticket just because she was women to attract women voters just proved how is ignorant he is.

Its just like the vast major of black people didnt support George Bush because Colin Powell and Condi Rice were secretary of state...Thats because they dont represent the politics of most minorities and blacks saw them as tokens. Its no different with woman and Sarah Palin.

I also think the Hillary Supporters still want to see Hillary as the first woman president and rightfully so because Hillary deserves it more than Sarah Palin does.

My 73 yr. old MIL just told me that the ladies at her senior center are all abuzz about Palin and not in a good way. She said that the consensus is that McCain is insulting their intelligence with her as his VP pick. Several other SAHM's I know have said the same thing.

I have yet to run into a woman I know personally who is supporting McCain.

like I said in another thread. I have a co-worker thats a staunch Hillary supporter who couldnt stand Obama and she is offended by McCain's choice. She said she will be voting for Obama in November.

Sarah Palin was nominated as the VP choice as a "token" woman. It was a silly move by McCain and obviously not thought out clearly. She is backfiring on McCain and the women who he thought he could hoodwink are not dumb. After the Convention has finished we shall see if his "gamble" has paid off. I'm afraid that he has shot himself in the foot with this one.

Sarah only has two opportunities to convince the people she is the best VP. Thats tonight at the convention and during the VP debates.
