No, you pick Allen West as your running mate and let him hit the campaign trail with Sarah to shore up your "Right" flank.
That's correctomundo, Fonzie! That would be smart politics. Putting her in the VP spot, again, is the solution, though...not yet. That could be sure death threat. Not from us, of course, but media-wise. Just the same that she attracted us to voting for McCain, this combination would attract us to vote for him (well...most of us). The right has mostly voted R and a large (if not the largest) portion of the right support Sarah Palin. Even if he's not a SP fan, if he is interested in shoring up votes, he should at least bring her to the convention and support a conservative base.
I don't think either is going to happen, tho.
