Sarah Palin on a Roll

I said I wouldn't do anything for Tuesday, but it was a fib. Here's a story that appeared in Monday's Anchorage Daily News, which you can't have delivered to your home in th e lower-48.

"Palin name keeps popping up on the national political landscape. There it was again, in The New York Times Sunday, suggesting Gov. Sarah Palin might be the woman who becomes president when Hillary Clinton does not."Sarah Palin, the Republican governor of Alaska, is on many lists - she's known as a reformer as well as for riding a motorcycle and referring to her husband as the ‘first dude.'"

"She's already made it into the final round on Congressional Quarterly's VP Madness poll. It's Palin vs. former White House budget director Rob Portman, and Mike Huckabee vs. Minnesota governor Tim Pawlenty. See how she does by the end of today; if she makes it to the final round, voting ends Thursday. The ADN Alaska Politics blog is already taking comments on both snapshots."

CQ VP Madness Poll is apparently at the final round; it's Palin vs. Huckabee.

This should be a no brainer for those who want McCain to win in November.

Huckabee was the one VP candidate likely to TURN OFF the female voters otherwise supporting Hillary; Palin is the one VP candidate likely to EXCITE those female voters otherwise supporting Hillary.

McCain/Palin = GOP victory in '08

Thanks for your comment Ted. I believe Sarah Palin appeals strongly to the evangelical base but also to other important groups that John McCain needs.
