I know Hillary Clinton...  
I know Hillary Clinton. Hillary Clinton is a friend of mine. And you're no Hillary Clinton!

McCain got it so wrong with his choice of Sarah Palin as VP. This is judgment? Other than bolstering his right wing Christian cred, she will do NOTHING to pull in Hillary voters who want a woman qualified to be president of the United States.

It's the issues, stupid!

I don't like Palin, but I have to say though, it is kind of cool that no matter which way this election goes, we will have a first woman or a first African American in the white house.

That statement, modeled on the one that Bentson made to Quayle, was exactly what I thought as I watched the news tonight. I am relishing the upcoming Vice Presidential debate, and hope that Biden doesn't hold back or treat her with kid gloves just because he has a female opponent. This is clearly a strategic stunt by McCain, who thinks that this candidate is going to fill the bill for those who supported Hillary and who refuse to vote for Obama. That because they supported her, then ANY woman candidate will be good enough for them. And for all of McCain's statements that Obama was not ready or qualified to be President, the public is to believe that Palin is supposed to be 'ready' or 'qualified' to be President should something happen to McCain?

I don't care if any 'firsts' are made with this election; I don't care if we have our first black/white/female/male whatever. . instead of having a feeling that we have 'the best' running for this job, we have yet another move in the political-strategy game. Another snub in the face of the American public, in the selfish race for political power and fame. How stupid does McCain think women voters are? Or any voters? If he was looking for a female to run with him, THIS is the best he could come up with? I am so disgusted with this whole 2008 campaign. For me, it is now a matter of merely voting for the least offensive candidate, since I think neither one is a good choice. But McCain scares me, and as an Arizonan, I sure as hell don't want him with is finger on that red button. .
