All speculation is pointing to Alaska Govornor Sarah Palin. Not Romney and Pawlenty as much of the buzz had been.
She hunts, she fishes, she’s pro life, and she’s easy on the eyes!
From Market Watch:
WASHINGTON (MarketWatch) — Speculation about Sen. John McCain’s choice for vice president intensified Friday with talk centering on darkhorse Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin amid reports that apparent frontrunners Mitt Romney and Tim Pawlenty were out.McCain, R-Ariz., hopes to turn the media focus away from Democratic rival Sen. Barack Obama and generate momentum heading into the GOP convention that starts Monday in St. Paul, Minn.
Shortly after U.S. markets opened, CNBC reported that an anonymous GOP strategist with ties to the McCain camp believed the choice would be Palin.Yet the Republican presidential nominee has kept his selection a closely guarded secret, and it’s anything but certain who’ll he will pick. McCain is slated to announce his running mate at noon Eastern time in Dayton, Ohio, just hours after the end of the Democratic convention.
Talk about knocking this one out of the park. This would be a brilliant move on McCain’s part!! Think about it, she’s a woman, and a strong one at that. Makes a real statement of ethics. Embraces environmental issues, very appealing to Democrats. Has a wonderful family story, that matches anything Michelle Obama or Joe Biden have to tell. Truly the next generation of the GOP.
