John McCain Picks a Woman for VP

Sarah Palin
Sarah Palin, Vice Presidential Nominee


In a relatively surprising announcement, presumptive Republican presidential nominee John McCain picked Alaska governor Sarah Palin to be his vice-presidential running mate.

Here is some of what AOL has reported about that:

DAYTON, Ohio (Aug. 29) — John McCain picked Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin, a conservative who shares his maverick streak, as his vice presidential running mate on Friday in a startling selection on the eve of the Republican National Convention.

At a raucous rally in the swing state of Ohio, McCain said he made his pick after looking for a political partner “who can best help me shake up Washington and make it start working again for the people who are counting on us.”

This will make for an interesting race.

FWIW, for different reasons, I suspect that if John McCain or Barack Obama (Democratic party nominee) become president, that some nut may attempt to assassinate whichever one may win–or that John McCain may otherwise die in office.
