Sarah Palin

Not boring. Not safe. Very exciting choice.
Of course, I have no patience with her views or party. I can understand pro-life, although I disagree. I absolutely cannot handle someone who wants creationism to be taught in schools. Her views on the environment and the war make her repulsive to me.
I was listening to her speak on the radio tonight, and thought, I want to see what this woman looks like. She looks like McCain’s granddaughter. She looks like me, and millions of 40 something American women. And when she held her baby, I bet millions of hearts all over this country broke. Because that is ME. Hilary is my aunt, but this woman, like Obama, is me. Quite shocking really.
Finally, finally we have a presidential race that is not about old white men.

I think Obama will be good for your country at all.
But he has to watch that he didn´t get killed

Is she exciting simply because she was born a woman?
I think Biden, despite being an old white guy is a more exciting, and infinitely more relevant choice than a reactionary of any sex, or age.

Yes, but there's no denying the emotion of seeing a woman up there. I tried to fight it, but lost. I think I never really believed I'd see the top of the ticket approached by a woman, even though my whole life I've been told women can do anything.
