Who will McCain pick?

Now that Obama has picked Biden as his running mate, we see the agent of "change" is just the agent "politics as usual".
The question, now is.....who will McCain choose?
A wikipedia article on Alaska Governor Sarah Palin has this to say:
"Palin has been rumored as a unique and viable candidate for the vice-presidency with Republican presumptive nominee Senator John McCain in the 2008 election.
Due to her female status, youthful image, background in government reform, pro-life stance, fiscal and social conservatism, and an approval rating in Alaska generally in the range of 80 to 90 percent, Palin could become the ticket to solidify the GOP's conservative base and garner independent support, as well as win over some of the disenchanted Hillary Clinton supporters. Furthermore, Palin has a strong and growing community of online supporters lobbying for her."
The "strong and growing community of online supporters lobbying for her" have an online petition asking that Palin be chosen as the Republican Vice Presidential candidate. Anyone interested in signing the petition can go here-Draft Governor Sarah Palin for Vice President.
McCain can do a lot worse.

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!
