Was she a good pick?
I read today that one candidate McCain had wanted was Lieberman, but when people got word that Lieberman may be the pick there was a lot of outrage due to his more liberal stances on various issues. McCain is already a maverick within his party, so he needed someone more in line with his party's stance.
Did he really know Palin's daughter was pregnant? Should that even matter?
Apparently the rumor is that by keeping his vp pick such a big secret, he may not have done all of his research on this candidate. However, there's also the idea that maybe she's a better candidate because she's not squeaky clean like Romney is.
I know that I'm trying my best to teach my daughter morals and values, but I also know she is going to make choices along the way that I won't agree with. Should I be held accountable for her actions? To some degree yes, but where do you draw the line? Bill Clinton had an affair while serving as President, I find that completely unscrupulous because he acted in his own behalf. This is Sarah Palin's daughter who did this...how much is it a reflection on her?
There's also that investigation into her conduct regarding the attempted firing of her former brother-in-law...
He never was fired, but his boss was fired. Of course his boss says he was fired because of this issue, but how much do we know about this boss guy? I saw a quote from Palin where she encouraged an investigation into the scandal. That's promising, but what does it mean?
Do you think McCain picked her only because she's a woman and he's trying to grab those voters who wanted Hillary?
Well, I'm wondering what you think?
