    Wow.

    Props to the people on this board who brought up her name months ago. Good call.

    Fascinating pick.

    Can't wait until the VP debates.

    Biden's going to eat her for lunch.

    Get your minds out of the gutter there.

    Well I guess that was a smart idea. Not controversial, with no fears of religious (Mormon) or radical (Leiberman) concerns and attractive to the female voters (and us men too, only in a different way ;) ).

    The thing about the debates, though, ... I think much of the public doesn't look at the content of what's said. Many times, it's the perception that matters to them.

    Biden will likely come off looking like an arrogant jerk ... knowledgeable, but a condescending arse.

    Gore talked circles around W Bush in 2000, but like Dennis Miller said, nobody likes a know-it-all.

    Sore subject... I already had to pay up a $50 bet on that one. :(

    We'll see. Biden's never really distinguished himself as a debater. He'll almost certainly be a more polished debater, but that doesn't mean everything. It's more about the impression you make, and I'd give Palin a solid edge there.

    Remember, everyone said that Gore would clean Bush's clock in the debates and Bush pretty much won the election by winning every single debate... not so much on the issues but on coming across as the more likable candidate.

    Biden's going to have to walk a fine line in the VP debate or he could come across like a totally pompous arse.

    :D

    I'm not really sure how she's attractive to female voters other than the fact that she's a female.

    I know this will sound shallow but she is very attractive in my opinion. She was runner up for Miss Alaska.

    And the first amusing campaign slogan comes out:

    McCain/Palin

    She's young enough to be his wife.

    You answered your own question.

    She's a mother of five. She has a special needs baby. She has a teenaged son who's going off to fight in Iraq next month.

    She really appeals to all those who feel robbed that Hillary's "historic" campaign was derailed. Many women really just wanted someone to break through that supposed "glass ceiling" and Hillary was so close but didn't make it.

    Now you have Palin and they have a chance to make history for woman-kind again.

    I don't subscribe to that line of thinking myself. But then again I'm not a woman. :D

    The hard-core feminists and pro-choicers are already in Obama's camp. No VP pick of McCain's was going to change that. But Palin appeals to all the "soccer moms" out there who may lean pro-choice but really don't care about that particular issue that much.

    It's a home run pick for McCain if he's trying to appeal to the vast majority of women.
