I like Palin, but after she was “Palinized” (made a laughingstock) she really brought nothing to the McCain/Palin ticket. My biggest concern is that she appeals to people who would already vote Republican anyway; I don’t think she’ll draw lib women (probably because of jealousy).
Contrary wise, the McCain campaign very much needed and was revitalized by his pick of Sarah Palin as his Vice President choice. They would have won, in my opinion, because of his picking her if not for the orchestrated timing at the last moment of the democrat caused financial collapse. That was huge and there wasn’t any time to counter it with reality. Do you remember that?
