This is the perfect pick on a number of levels. Palin is a popular governor of a prosperous state. She has more executive experience as mayor and governor than Obama has ever had as "community organizer," state senator and U.S. Senator.
Palin is a true conservative: pro-life - Palin chose to have a child with Down's Syndrome knowing the challenges that accompany such a choice, pro-business, pro-market, pro-freedom and an evangelical Christian to boot. She is a member of the National Rifle Association and favors drilling in the ANWAR. Her oldest son is in the military and is about to be deployed on September 11.
Palin preempts Obama's choice of Biden.
Palin is a fresh, dynamic face, Biden is a 36-year Washington insider.
Palin has exective experience as governor, Biden has been an integral part of the Democratic Old Boys' Network for close to four decades.
Palin is telegenic, dynamic and a strong presence, Biden has hair plugs.
I would love to see Biden try his pitbull act on Palin. He won't have a prayer in the vice presidential debates.
Say goodbye to your post-convention bounce, Obama.
