The choice of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice President again shows that Senator McCain can think outside the box. Conventional thinking was for McCain to choose another man, someone from the Congress or a former member but he clearly moved beyond this sort of traditional thinking by picking Palin. I personally have been following Governor Palin's career for more than a year since she is a true-blue conservative from an important Western state. Also, this decision makes Sarah Palin most likely the first female President in the United States (in 2012). McCain showed so much courage and character in reaching outside Washington in picking Palin, it was an incredible choice.
As governor of Alaska, she vetoed over 300 special interest bills in the budget.
She cancelled the $300 million dollar "Bridge to Nowhere" that Congress wanted to waste money on. She has been in office for 13 years as mayor and governor of Alaska.
She is a pro-life woman who, when faced with a terrible choice (knowing she would have a Downs syndrome baby), she stuck by her principles.
Her oldest son signed up for the US Army after 9/11 and Palin's family fully support their son in this effort.
She is a life-time member of the NRA, hunts, and loves moose-burgers (no vegetarian tree-hugger here). Her husband is an Alaskan Inuit. She has done more in the last 20 months than her predecessors have done in the previous 12 years! She also brought down in ethics investigations she governor of Alaska, the state attorney general, and the head of the GOP party in Alaska. She is in favor of oil drilling and has taken on the Alaskan oil companies in that northern state.
She is 44 years old and has had 5 kids and looks THIS GOOD!
