McCain -Palin - What a team !!!!!!On July 31, 2008 I wrote here about Sarah Palin and agreed that she would be an exciting energizing pick.
Well, this thought was not lost upon the McCain camp. In a masterstroke that highlights the core principles of the best of the American tradition, McCain has chosen a person who is living proof of the American dream made reality. Sarah Palin is pro-family, pro-life, populist. She is a reformer who took on the establishment in her home state. She is a believer in the 2nd Amendment, believes that we should be energy independent, and knows what the average American deals with every day. She is a working mom. She can relate to Americans across this nation whether they work in the boardroom or the stockroom.
I liked her comments this morning. She acknowledged her husband and mentioned that they have been married 20 years and today is their anniversary. she told them about their oldest son who is serving our nation in the u.S. Army in Iraq. She introduced her children to the sound of resounding applause at the event in Dayton, Ohio. She recognized the challenge ahead.
I have spoken with friends all over the country. The base is energized. Now is the time for all of us to come to the aid of our country (I love that line). One person said that she was so excited because it showed that McCain was listening to the grassroots.
I like it that the choice has completely taken the media and the press by surprise.
Thank you, John.
Now on to victory in November.
