A Campaign of Change: Will America Choose A Black President or A Female VP?
It seems Senator John McCain flipped the switch on Friday, with his selection of Alaska Governor Sarah Palin as his Vice Presidential candidate.
Calling her “the running mate who can best help me shake up Washington,” McCain is not only tapping into a fresher, younger demo (Palin’s 44, three years younger than Obama), but he’s selected a woman–a beautiful one, who was actually a former Miss Alaska runner-up!
“To have been chosen brings a great challenge,” Palin said. “I know that it will demand the best that I have to give and I promise nothing less.”
Blindie suspects McCain is hoping to win over disgruntled Hillary Clinton voters who feel shafted that their female messiah was “cheated” of her White House dream by a less-experienced man.
Regardless, the 2008 Presidential campaign will be a historic one of change–whether it’s Obama in the White House, or Palin in the Vice President’s Residence.
