I posted out in (this post here) February how the issue of 'First Female President' was such a load of bull, especially when you had Hillary supporters claiming that people against Hillary were simply against having a woman as President. Too bad they still haven't figured out that it has nothing to do with Hillary being a woman, but with her being the wrong woman.
So now we have a second woman enter the race as John McCain's Vice Presidential running mate, Governor Sarah Palin of Alaska. She is a true conservative. She is someone whose name had been bouncing around the internet for months already and I always thought she would be a great pick, just not the choice that McCain would make. So, I am pleasantly surprised.
One of my staff who is currently working in Europe called me to find out what I thought. She is a big Obama supporter. She knew that I was voting for McCain but was shocked to hear how excited I was about his VP choice. She thought I was joking saying that she believed that Palin was a horrible choice for conservatives. I explained otherwise. My completely unexpected reaction left her very confused. I also heard from my mom, who loved her speech and was excited that a good woman was on the path of the presidency, given if they win, she would probably run in four years for the top job.
I was confident of McCain's chances before, and now I am even more so. Don't even get me started on my concern upon hearing the rumors that McCain's VP pick was Pawlenty!
