That being said I think that McCain made a pretty good choice. I don't know if it was the best possible choice because there is so much I don't know about the candidates but it was a very good choice. Her lone real weakness is lack of foreign policy experience and I do wish she had a bit more.
What impresses me is the excitement that this has generated over the right side of the blogosphere. People who felt that McCain was insufficiently conservative have now decided it's OK to hold their nose and vote for him. People who were choosing him as the lesser of two evils now feel better about giving him their votes. People who liked him now seem to like him more.
Over all he made a smart choice.
Sadly, everyone has a skeleton or ten in their closet and I suppose something will be dragged out soon, but overall I must say that I am impressed with her. I have read of one minor scandal and one other thing that seems to be an outright slander. I guess it's started.
She's not bad looking either.
