I have not been all that thrilled with the political campaigns going on so far. McCain is my choice but it's mostly a default choice. I'd much rather Bobby Jindal were running - but hopefully one day he will.
I am now JAZZED to vote for McCain with his choice of Sarah Palin as VP!!! WOOT!!!
It's not just that she's a woman (if that were my only criteria I'd have voted for Shillary). It's that her ideals are MY ideals. She is a true role model for women like me and those growing up in today's society. She is tough as nails (I've heard her nickname is Sarah Barracuda) and not afraid to stand up for the good ol' boy network to get things done. (She stood up against her own party and opposed the Bridge to Nowhere.)
I love that some of Messiah's supporters are questioning her experience. hahahahahaha Do they really want to go there? She has more experience than he does and he has the gall to run for the presidency itself.
I haven't been "excited" for a ticket in a long time. Now I'm ready to get a McCain / Palin bumper sticker and t-shirt. :) I have a feeling that she will run against Shillary in a future election. I DO want to see a woman (or a person of "non-white" color - like Jendal or Michael Steele - I would love either of those guys too) in the white house but that is not the only reason to vote for someone. It's nice to have the right ideals in a candidate - being a woman is just icing on the cake.
She's a great speaker too. She just thanked Geraldine Ferraro and Hillary Clinton for paving the way. That's classy. And smart. :) My MIL was excited to vote for Hillary even though she doesn't agree with her ideals. She just wanted to see a woman in the white house before she died. Now she can vote for someone with her ideals and get a woman in the second highest spot in America. And perhaps one day the highest spot. Woohoo!!!
