Strategic Brilliance

You gotta give it to McCain, his VP choice is a stroke of brilliance. Sarah Palin energizes the base, provides appeal to women, pro-Lifers, union people, conservatives, and provides a stark contrast to Obama. Palin shows gumption, initiative, resistance to the forces of politics as usual and the good'ole boy network. Obama by contrast is a do-nothing Senator who is beholden to a chain of special interests a mile long and never saw a baby he wasn't ready to sacrifice. It's just no contest. Every time the Democrats attack Palin for her lack of experience for the number two spot the obvious rejoinder is to point out that she has more relevant experience than their number one spot candidate has. Strategic brilliance and an energizing pick for the Republicans.
