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.
