There is no way I am voting for them! I think it's a hugh slap in the face to American women. Did you ever stop and think who would McCain pick as his VP running mate if Obama picked Clinton? It sure the heck would not have been Panlin. For all you who were clinton supporters and now vote for Palin you are mere puppets and they are the puppet master!

He already had the hick vote. It's hard to believe she is the most qualified person in the country to fill out the ticket.

No doubt dmets! McSame chose her for 2 reasons that I can see, one to sway over the Clinton supporters and two to win over the evangelical Christians. The second reason worries me most, because the last thing we want is people who control and make policy for our country doing so based on their faith. McSame is definitely appealing to the ignorance of our country. Just Google search Palin and evangelical at the same time. She's commented before that our country being in Iraq is God's will. Do you want someone like that in office, needless to say the number 2 person in command on the country? I'm sorry, my best friend's family and a girl I once dated were born again and it's scary how brain washed these people are. I watched the church take money from a feeble old woman, while the gas company turned off her gas because she was giving it all to the church. And, I've attended their mass, and all they talked about during the sermon was about the end of times. That was too much for me. I was afraid to drink the punch at communion! I had to pass it along.

She's NOT an Attorney/Professional Politician...Sen. McCain is
NOT an Attorney/Politician...they got my vote..in the VP slot?
She is Certainly a change . 60% of the members of the Senate are
lawyers..as is 34% of House members...any wonder we have
arguing and mistrust in Washington ? Less attorneys who want to
be politicians is the change I'm looking for..

I watched Mccain's speech acceptance speech last night. It took him quite a while to get to his specific solutions for America. Then finally, "I wont let you down". What could go wrong with a plan like that?

It's amazing that people are going to vote their future on someone they never heard of 10 days ago.

When you look around the country for for someone to fill the ticket and you settle for a 20 month Governor of Alaska, that would equate to, if you needed legal council and you settled on the 8th best lawyer from Gerard.

She's not even allowed to talk to or be interviewed by the press. She's not scheduled to go on Meet the Press or any such legitimate news show to be questioned. I'm sure she will end up talking to Fox Noise.

The terms "Clinton supporter" and "Palin supporter" are a far cry from being synonymous. The fact that Hillary is a woman was a definite bonus for many of the women who voted for her, but it certainly wasn't her defining characteristic. And Palin couldn't be more ideologically opposite. She wasn't selected to appeal to women; she was selected to appeal to the religious right, who had reservations about McCain's "maverick" reputation -- which ironically the GOP is now touting as a means to distance itself from Bush.

It is insulting to my intelligence that by simply putting Palin on the ticket would capture my vote. McCain did a disservice to his integrity as a a so-called maverick by letting the party bully him into this pick. I have a feeling that when the party insiders got wind of a possible Lieberman or Romney pick, he was marched down to the principals office (Karl Rove) and told in no uncertain terms to "get in line" behind a more conservative pick or else he couldn't count on more money from the right flowing into his campaign. I'm sorry but as a free thinking individual i will not be voting on wedge issues such as abortion, guns and gay marriage this time around. None of those outweigh the most concerning issue of this election or time, the Economy. Does anyone honestly think, that by voting on these wedge issues alone, we will get ahead as a community? It can only serve to divide us further. Can banning guns or allowing them solve the problem on the south side? NO, reversing the economic trend first can do more good in getting guns off the streets. The evidence clearly shows that people with stable and growing economic conditions are far less likely to be involved in violent crime. Does the Pro-life/Pro-choice argument get us anywhere in solving teen pregnancy? NO, again stabilize the economy and provide an atmosphere where people can actually get ahead, (not working at the local burger joint)and I guarantee you abortion rates will drop. All of these little issues can only be looked at after we get our economy back on track. The biggest threat to our way of life and economy right now is CHINA. They manipulate their economy as they see fit, and we suffer the consequences. We borrow endless amounts of money from them to pay endless amounts of money to the arab states, that TOTALLY HATE US! I have no faith that Palin has any inkling or shred of knowledge on how are deficit, our markets, our military or our state department, actually function. A 72 year old heartbeat stand between a maverick president and a rookie if we choose McCain. Are you willing to bet the farm on that?

Good point, glad you brought it up cambridge! Palin has governed 670,000 people. That is 670,000 more than Obama, Biden and for that matter McCain.

Thanks again!!!!!!

Columbus truly isn't 747k. They include the population of surrounding suburbs in that. Just read up on it and you'd understand what I'm saying.

It's like saying Youngstown has 160,000 people, because we count Austintown's-Boardman's-Canfield's populations in our census.

Anybody on the ticket who is not a lawyer has my serious consideration and most likely my vote.
Just look at the Congress and Senate and their lack of being able to accomplish anything.
Lawyers make more money the more they drag things out.
Anybody got a divorce lately?
I say out with the lawyers and in with the PTA and hockey moms.
At least they can make a decision.
I'm ready for real people to govern for real people.

The Us census states that the city of Columbus, Ohio is 747,755. If you choose not to believe the census fine.

Below are quotes from a Washington Post article written by James V. Grimaldi.

"Alaska Gov. Sara Palin has billed taxpayers for 312 nights spent in her own home during her first 19 months in office, charging a "per diem" allowance intended to cover meals and incidental expenses while traveling on state business.

"The governor also has charged the state for travel expenses to take her children on official out-of-town missions. And her husband, Todd, has billed the state for expenses and a daily allowance for trips he makes on official business for his wife."

A quote from Alaska state finance director Kim Garnero in the same article. "Asked Monday about the official policy on charging for children's expenses, Garnero said: "We cover the expenses of anyone who's conducting state business. I can't imagine kids could be doing that."

If you chose not to believe the above quotes, fine.

Just another typical Republican politician. Corrupt.

TIME FOR A CHANGE. WWJD.

I'll vote for them just because Sarah Palin is "HOT". Maybe some real pics of her in bikini's will surface.

Reading the quotes really doesn't tell you much.
Perhaps one should read the entire article.
It seems that too much of the politics these days, clips a small quote that suits their purpose, when often the whole story reads much differently.
If you are interested in the whole story here is the link:

Much is being written these days about each of the candidates.

You libs are getting really desperate trying to dig up crap on Palin. I would say what you have so far is pretty pathetic. Obama has confessed he is a Muslim and you can't put those words back into his mouth no matter how hard you try. A talking head empty suit is all he is and I wouldn't trust him for one minute as my President.

This Democrat woman is most certainly going to vote for McCain/Palin! I voted for Hillary Clinton in the primaries, she was the one who could have won in the GE over McCain! But, we all know what was done to Hillary by the DNC and the MSM. I will not vote for Obama and here's some of the reasons why: Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Donna Brazile, Rev. Wright, Ayers, Rezko. Now this is change I can believe in, McCain/Palin 2008. PumaPac, People United Means Action
