Breaking News - McCain's VP Choice!

Well, my mother is a avid Fox News watcher, so she's been keeping me up to date on the Presidential Campaign. Here's the most likely to be announced VP in John McCain's campaign for President! Gov. of Alaska Sarah Palin. What an edge to have this incredible woman!

Some excerpts of interest from Fox News:

"Palin is considered a rising star in the Republican Party. She is the state’s first female governor, the mother of five — and at 44 is its youngest chief executive.

"Palin is well received among both economic and social conservatives. She is quoted saying in 2002 that she is as “pro-life as any candidate can be.” The Club for Growth, a government spending watchdog, described Palin as a “genuine reformer.”

"Sarah and Todd Palin have five children: boys Track, 19, and Trig, 4 months, and daughters Bristol, 17, Willow, 13, and Piper, 7. Track Palin joined the Army last Sept. 11 and will deploy to Iraq next month. Palin had kept her pregnancy with Trig a secret as she worked in the governor’s mansion, confirming only weeks before the birth that she was going to have a son who she knew would have Down syndrome. She returned to work in April three days after giving birth.

"Palin will be the second female vice presidential candidate from a major political party. The first was New York Rep. Geraldine Ferrarro, who was Walter Mondale’s Democratic running mate in 1984. Ferrarro told FOX News that Palin could pick up a lot of Hillary Clinton’s supporters who have not locked in on Obama."
