Alaska's Governor, Sarah Palin, was selected as the vice-presidential running-mate of John McCain for the November election.
It really stole Obama's thunder after his speech on Thursday night. Do you think it was planned? Oh absolutely!
Some reports say it was a last minute decision by the Republicans to pick Sarah Palin because her nomination was kept such a closely guarded secret. I doubt it. I think it was a perfectly orchestrated move by the Republicans to rob Obama of his moment.
Maybe it was the station I was watching, but there was barely a mention of the historic speech given by Obama accepting the nomination for presidency the previous night.
Anyway, it's an interesting move by the Republicans to pick a generally unknown but very popular (within her state) woman for the ticket.
It makes me wonder, would Sarah Palin have been chosen if Hillary was Obama's vice-presidential selection?
I must admit an Obama-Clinton & McCain-Palin race to the presidency would have been an interesting showdown.
Right now I just really want to know what Hillary Clinton is saying behind closed doors? I would really love to know.
