I SO did not see that coming.

I seriously did a double take with the tv when they said it on the news and had to figure out for a moment if I had accidentally fallen asleep.

It's like he's not taking it seriously!

That's the feeling I got on the matter, like he did it to shock everyone and try to hang out with the cool progressive kids.

Or something.

the coolest thing is that no matter who wins, a barrier will be broken, either a black president or a female vp..too wonderful

I'm not surprised. He couldn't choose Romney because he lost so badly in the South. And Huckabee is too far right. It makes sense. Obama is saying he is the more progressive (change) candidate.. and yet, he choose an old school democrat as a VP. McCain's arguement is going to be he's the more progressive because he was the one out of the two that was willing to put a woman on the ticket.

Either way.. this election is going to be interesting.

It's definitely going to be an interesting rest of the year in politics.

I saw it coming. But, I'm pretty cynical when you get right down to it and can recognize that it would be the kind of 'maverick-y' move that he would assume would attract the Hillary supporters.

He's Desperate
He realizes that this is about the only chance he has, so he is "all in" to use gambling terms.

Re: He's Desperate
That's pretty much the feeling I was trying to describe above.

Yeah...an anti gay marriage, anti choice woman with little experience.

And he waited until after Obama chose Biden to break the news.

I'm sensing pandering to the bitter Hillary supporters on the basis of "Look, we picked a woman! Obama didn't!"

But maybe that's just my cynicism talking...

That's what I was thinking when I heard more about her, as far as.. how she seems like your typical extreme right-winged white elderly male republican in a cute suit and nice hair.

I'm drowning in my cynicism, too.

Yeah, total pandering. He only met her once 6 months ago and only had one conversation with her before offering her the VP spot.

Ugh, she annoys me lol. She's also under investigation in Alaska for trying to get her state trooper bro in law fired.

She truly makes my skin crawl. I'm hoping that choosing her totally put the nail in the Republican coffin, so to speak.

I wonder how many Hillary Clinton supporters will now vote for McCain instead of Obama because they believe Clinton should have been running for president, or at the very least vice president.

I wouldn't put it past some people - throwing a tantrum and not wanting anyone other than their first choice EVUR being in office and thusly throwing it to the other side.

Or something.

I should really be sleeping.

You're kidding. Really? I would have bet that he was going to pick a woman. Demographically Condi Rice would have been my choice but she's not a good politician.

This is what I get for not paying attention to the news lately!
