I know, I know, two American political posts in one week for me? Well, you gotta know I am a political junkie, itâ€™s just that politics has been quite boring in recent years.
But now, in a bold move;
DAYTON, Ohio â€” In a surprise move, Senator John McCain chose Gov. Sarah Palin of Alaska as his running mate on Friday, shaking up the political world at a time when his campaign has been trying to attract women, especially disaffected supporters of Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton, McCain officials confirmed.
In choosing Ms. Palin â€” a 44-year-old conservative Christian and self-described â€œhockey momâ€ who has been governor for less than two years â€” the McCain campaign reached far outside the Washington Beltway in an election in which the Democratic nominee, Senator Barack Obama, is running on a platform of change.
Bold or desperate? I suppose it depends if you like elephants or donkeys.
