I have been doing some extensive reading about the political accomplishments of Gov. Sarah Palin from Alaska–and have been nothing short of impressed. This woman has brought some incredible reforms to her state and has changed “politics as usual”…and I think McCain has made a genius choice for a running mate.
I must admit that I had never paid attention to Alaskan politics in the past, but after reading about Gov. Palin today, I am intrigued. Some may say that the VP is just a figurehead–but I don’t see this woman as the type to just sit around and observe what’s going on: she is the type to step up and take action to clean up the messes around her.
I’m much more excited about this election each day–first, with Obama choosing Biden (because to me, it seems like McCain’s chances just went up), and now with McCain choosing amazing Sarah Palin, it’s shaping up to be an interesting election! 🙂
[Update: Been reading about the Dems response, about her lack of experience with foreign policy and how it’s the same as Obama’s…um, slight difference–she’s a VP candidate, not a Presidential candidate. I think that’s an okay difference!]
