Look to Alaska, Senator McCain!

With Senator Obama's VP selection now public, I think Senator McCain should not waste time in naming his running mate.

I hope Senator McCain gives serious consideration to Alaska Governor Sarah Palin (pictured above with her husband and four of her five children).

She is the governor of an important state (notably on the energy issue) who previously served as a mayor and city council member. She is a reformer. She is pro-life. She is not a Washington insider. At age 44, she is from a new generation of American leaders.

Governor Palin could help to unify the GOP base and garner the McCain campaign many good vibes from the media.

Also, it is far beyond the time when the United States should have elected a woman as POTUS or VPOTUS. Senator McCain should seriously consider this opportunity to make history.

Biden — the perfect foil for Palin!

Despite the Dems and the allied main stream media’s desperation to see Romney as McCain’s Veep, Mitt is clearly out, with (1) Obama doubling down on the class warfare theme (McCain’s 7 houses) and (2) McCain doubling down with ads showing the hypocrisy of Biden attacking Obama in the primaries — Romney did way more than that contra McCain.

This leaves only Govs Sarah Palin and Tim Pawlenty. Pro-abortion Ridge and Dem-Lieberman were never real considerations, despite relentless media goading. Pawlenty’s lackluster TV performances, coupled with Palin pizzazz, the primacy of oil drilling and the ticked off women/Hillary voters, does now portend a McCain/Palin checkmate on the Dems. This is so albeit the Dems and liberal media dare not mention Palin’s name, that is, everyone but…..

And if there’s any question as to Palin being uniquely positioned and able to more than nullify Biden in debate, see the excellent discussion at

Team McCain, well done!!!
