Sarah Palin is a Governor from Alaska with two years of experience. She is a gun toting, pro-lifer who is against minimum wage increases. She is also a union member and claims to have stood up to special interests. In an attempt to win over disgruntled Hillary voters, this choice is a bold one, but a gamble that probably won't pay off since McCain's primary ammo has been that Obama is not experienced enough. In her first public speech accepting the VP nomination, she was a likable cheerleader-- touting McCain's Vietnam experience as the primary reason to vote for him.
Hopefully this choice has completely pissed off the most despicable person in the world: Rush Limbaugh. If you can listen to him without vomiting-- you have a very strong stomach.
All of the speeches were excellent but Obama's speech was particularly impressive. Republican insiders claimed that they were very concerned--- as they should be.
