While I think McCain’s pick was less “safe” than Obama’s, I think it will ultimately hurt him. Just as Dan Quayle became an albatross around Sr. Bush’s neck, I think Palin will also come up short for McCain. Why? One reason, she has no experience. She is even fresher than Obama, and that is startling in itself. Reading her bio on Wikipedia proves her to be a very interesting individual, however I am not sure that her qualifications (2nd in 1984 Miss Alaska competition) are going to energize the electorate.
I think the most interesting line in her bio is, “On September 11, 2007, the Palins’ then eighteen-year-old son Track, eldest of five, joined the Army. He now serves in an infantry brigade and will be deployed to Iraq on September 11, 2008” That sure is a lot of 9/11’s. Coincidence? Let’s see what EuroYank has to say…
