VP Hottie?

My good friends and likely future Northern Alliance colleagues, Paul and John at Power Line, comment on the tightrope John McCain will have to walk when choosing his running mate. John Hinderaker notes the recent mini-groundswell among conservatives for choosing Alaska’s hot Governor Sarah Palin:

Although Governor Palin is both attractive and a solid conservative, there are several problems with choosing her as running mate.

First off is experience. One of John McCain’s main themes will be Barack Obama’s lack of experience. Sarah Palin has even less. She is two years younger than Obama and has only been governor since 2006. Before that, her only elective office was two terms on the Wasilla City Council. McCain can’t very well assert that Palin is prepared to step in as President and then argue that Obama doesn’t have the experience necessary to be commander in chief.

The other problem is more serious – her maiden name is Heath. We all know how Democrats love to make fun of people’s names, and there is no way they’ll be able to resist reminding the electorate that Governor Palin shares a name with failed British Prime Minister Edward Heath.

If Governor Palin keeps up the good work in Alaska, she will make a great candidate for national office down the road. But for now, John McCain should look for a more experienced running mate. We aren’t the Democrats, after all.

That looks like a high school picture to me. A hot one, indeed, but probably a little dated.

I think you must have you head in the snow. If you were to make list of accomplishments for Obama versus Palin, you would quickly see that Palin out shines Obama. The other thing is that the only past that Obama offers it the past he talks about. She would make a better President than Obama but remember she is running for Vice President.

Obama’s real past is association with thugs, terrors and racist. Oh I forgot; He did serve a little less than 200 days in the senate. If you like that voting record then I’m wasting my time talking to you anyway.
