Sen. John McCain has taken center stage the day after Obama’s coronation at the Democrat Convention by announcing his VP at high noon. It’s Sarah Palin she has it all, good looks right out of central casting, intelligent speaker, family values and governor of Alaska. She is an environmentalist and understands drilling for oil is a must for U.S. energy independence.
She has positive energy and wit. She will be able to out debate Biden and show that the Republicans trust a women for high office. She has a real life, not a life-long politician like Biden and so many other Big Brother Democrats.
The mother of five is an avid runner. Here is an article from the WSJ in September:
Gov. Sarah Palin: Midnight runs and caribou dinners

Gov. Sarah Palin has always been a runner. Her parents were marathoners and high school track and cross-country coaches. “Running was a family affair,” she says. “I didn’t have much choice. Thankfully, I’ve never tired of it.”
Gov. Palin, a mother of five kids, says exercise is still very much a “family thing.” She and her husband, Todd, also an athlete, named their first son Track because he was born in that sport’s season. Gov. Palin (above, near Mendenhall Glacier, outside of Juneau) and her family live in Wasilla, about 45 miles north of Anchorage.
“Conventional running is my sanity,” Gov. Palin says. Having recently given birth to her fifth child, the governor is trying to get back to her old workout routine. She was running 7 to 10 miles almost every day but switched to aerobics classes at her gym when she became pregnant. She has worked her way back up to running three miles every other day.
In the summer, when it’s always light, she’ll sometimes run as late as midnight. In the dead of winter, when it’s dark, she sneaks in an afternoon run, or else grudgingly runs on the treadmill at home or at the gym in the evening. Gov. Palin keeps dumbbells at home, but she says most of her upper body strength comes from snowmobiling with her family. “It’s the best upper body workout you could ever have,” she says. “You’re maneuvering through hundreds of pounds of powder.” (Todd is a four-time champion of the Tesoro Iron Dog, the world’s longest snowmobile race.)

“My family and I eat a healthy diet heavy in wild Alaskan seafood, moose, caribou and fresh fruit,” she says. “I guess my biggest pitfall is breakfast. I know it’s the most important meal of the day but I still haven’t bought into it. I hate to admit it, but a skinny white-chocolate mocha is my staple in the morning.”
“My ideal fantasy is to be running on a hot dusty road just wearing running shorts and some kind of top that wicks away sweat. But in reality I’m running in 20-below temperatures, so I wear layers of fleece and always a good outdoor waterproof trail shoe. Right now I’ve been running in Nike Air Structure Triax. And I always wear sunglasses. My kids tell me to put them on so I don’t freak people out when they see me with a goofy hairdo and no makeup.”
While I’m working out
“I’m thinking about my next speech. I usually write my best speeches and letters [in my head] while out running. That is my inspired time.”
“Nothing. I just drink water.”
“Being pregnant every few years. If I get lazy and go weeks or months without exercising it’s not because of circumstances but because I’m being less disciplined. Shame on me.”
Drill here, drill now!
The potential thought of Sarah Palin as the President of the United States is frightening.
I will say this throws the “experience”, “drug use”, “celebrity” charges against Barack Obama out the window.
What a delightful turn of events. Of course, Cindy McCain is proof that John is not afraid of smart, successful women. But it’s lovely to see him pick someone who not only embodies intelligent, moral government, but will be the proof that people who say they are feminists don’t really care if it’s a woman in office if it isn’t a liberal woman.
Interesting difference between the DNC and RNC — at the DNC, everyone chanted “Obama.” At the RNC, they chanted “USA.” It’s a difference that matters to me.
Excellent points! Very good observation.
This pick is driving the Democrats nuts, getting lots of favorable comment from women like Ferraro and other Hillary supporters and energizing the Republican base like nothing has since Reagan. Pretty good morning’s work for McCain.
Wait : Is “WaltzingAustralia ” psychic ? I don’t think we’ve had the RNC yet, so how did he/she hear the alleged “USA” chanting ? Confusing RNC with Olympics? Australia in such a different time zone that he/she’s living in the future ? Looking forwardto knowing…..
And: well, of course feminists don’t want just a female body in the White House – we want someone who suports issues we care about. Wouldn’t it be more offensicve if we ignored issues and focused only on anatomy ? I wasn’t a big fan of Margaret Thatcher or Indira Ghandi, not to mention the late Imelda Marcos….
great choice! obama’s got it wrapped up. no way this lady survives 75 days of the 24 hour news cycle.
Flicka — RNC also means Republican National Committee. Sorry to be confusing.
As for feminists voting for issues — that may be true, unless you vote against a woman based on the issues, and then you’re accused of voting against her “just because she’s a woman.” Couldn’t be because you disagree, you just clearly hate women. (Or, since I’m a woman, I’m enslaved by tradition, or some such rot.)
You may be the one exception to this rule, but I’ve never found anyone else who thought voting against a woman could be issue related.
I’m sorry you haven’t met these reasonable people . I know a lot of them. One of the unfortunate effects of the increasing polarization shown in and enocuraged by the media is that we all tend to assume the worst of the “other side” and are encouraged to ignore or dismiss any commonalities or subtleties. My female friends – and many male friends who believe in rights for women – and I vote on issues, I pormise. Let’s ALL try to look beyond steroetypes and find that we’re all complex, thinking human beings, not black-and-white cardboard cutouts.
I have met many reasonable people. Most are Republicans or Independents.
Sarah Palin will become a role model for women across the U.S.
