If you told me 3 months ago that John McCain could beat Barack Obama, I would have laughed at you. But what about picking a woman, a hot-for-44 woman, as VP: Governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin? I mean, wouldn’t all the Hillary backers jump ship and vote for McCain unless Obama picked Hillary for VP? Wouldn’t there be at least 3 ‘CATFIGHT’ headlines on the front of the New York Post every time the two took passive aggressive shots at each other? Wouldn’t it make things more interesting and take the focus off of McCain himself, which helps him out big time? The Republicans are a lot of things, but they aren’t stupid. I’m thinking the day after the Dem Convention, she’s announced as VP. That would work.
