I am totally obsessed with McCain's choice of Palin for one main reason. Regardless of how you feel about her, (and in the interest of full disclosure, I disagree with her on nearly every issue) it's amazing that either outcome in November will be tremendous for women in the political sphere.
If she wins, that's obviously a major hurdle achieved for women. If she loses, I think there will be some close-minded people out there who say, "See, a woman couldn't cut it after all." But now that I say that, you can obviously say the same thing about Obama and African Americans. Duh. Still, I guess I am obsessed with her because I can relate to her a bit more, being from a small town and all. And to see the whirlwind that her life has become in less than a week, for better or for worse, is fascinating.
Anyway, just a little rambling on my part. If anyone has thoughts to add, please share. And I promise I'll go back to talking about Kibi's antics next week.
Have a good weekend.
